The Indian cricket board (BCCI) has got another five days to change the team picked for the T20 World Cup. The deadline for submitting the final team to the International Cricket Council (ICC) is October 15. Selectors are fretting over allrounder Hardik Pandya's availability as medium-pacer and contemplating adding a fast bowler to the main team.

"The selectors will wait and watch on how Hardik shapes up in the next few days. The selectors went with just three genuine pacers because it was believed Hardik would be fit enough to bowl his quota of overs. Since he hasn't bowled at all in the IPL, there's no form to go by," a top BCCI official said on Sunday.

"It was believed that the deadline to submit the final team was October 10 but it was only for the teams who are playing the qualifiers which start on Oct 17. "Teams can change their teams seven days prior to the start of their support period. India's support period starts with the Super 12 which begin on Oct 23. So, they have time to change the team till Oct 15 midnight," an ICC source told TOI.
