T20 World Cup: Another Delhi Capitals player snubbed- In what comes as another shock to DC, spinner Axar Patel was replaced by standby player Shardul Thakur by the Indian team management on Wednesday. This comes even as Axar picked 9 wickets in 7 matches with a brilliant economy in the UAE leg of IPL 2021. Adding fuel to the fire, in-form Shreyas Iyer remained on the standby list despite his good run in IPL 2021 Phase 2. Meanwhile, the selectors remained unimpressed with Shikhar Dhawan despite 500+ runs for consecutive IPL seasons. Follow IPL 2021 playoffs LIVE Updates on InsideSport.in
