One fan had an interesting perspective on the change and tweeted that Thakur should have been selected instead of Ravichandran Ashwin or Rahul Chahar. The user wrote,

"Picking Shardul Thakur was a right call but it should've been in the place of Ashwin or Rahul Chahar. And not picking Chahal is as dumb as it gets. It's like encouraging the ones who didn't perform and the discouraging the ones who did perform well."

"Shardul Thakur replaces Axar Patel in India's main squad for T20 WorldCup. What do you think? Will he make India win the World Cup? I believe he is India's best fast bowling all-rounder as per the current available options",
