T20 World Cup 2022: One of the strongest team in the current cricket system, Team India had choked in the T20 World cup 2021 in Dubai. That was last ICC tournament of Team India under vintage Captain Virat Kohli. But who knew that Team India will perform like that RCB and Punjab Kings perform in the IPL.
Now, T20 World Cup is set to begin in Australia this year and it is once again big oppertunity for Team India to perform like masters by winning the ICC trophy. After 2011 ODI World Cup, Team India hasn’t won any ICC trophy despite having a good team with experienced players.
Indian Premiere league (IPL) is a vast oppertunity for the Indian players who can show their class and form and get the direct entry in the upcoming Team India’s series and ICC tournament. But this time, It will be a tough task for Team management to pick 15 member squad for the T20 World Cup 2022. On that note, in this article, we predict Team India’s 15-member squad for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia.
Team India’s 15 member squad for T20 World Cup 2022:
Openers: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul
Rohit Sharma will the lead the Team India in t20 World cup 2022. KL Rahul is in red hot form in this season and he is well experienced player and able to give a agile commence to the team. Ishan Kishan has been in the team for the while now and considering he is a left-hander, he is likely to get a chance.
Middle Order Batsman: Virat Kohli, Surya Kumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik
Vintage Kohli will play in T20 World cup 2022 in Australia as a player but definitely lead his team from the second side. Surya Kumar Yadav is a good middle order batsman and has shown his credibility at the international side and in the IPL as well. On the Other side, Dinesh Karthik is looking in the tremendous form and showing his finishing skills for RCB in this season. He might be trump card for Team India in T20 World Cup 2022.
Wicket-Keeper: Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson
Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson are leading their team from the front but Delhi Capitals haven’t shown their brutal side under Rishabh Pant captaincy in this season. On the other side, Sanju’s team Rajasthan Royals is firing from every corner and showed their fans why they are called Royals. Sanju Samson is also scoring runs for his team which is the good sign for Team India.
All- Rounder: Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja
Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are likely to be the two all-rounders in Team India’s 15-member squad for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia.
Although Washington Sunder and Shardul Thakur also have a chance in the team but Shardul Thakur’s performance is not upto the mark in this IPL season and Sunder’s batting performance might force the selectors to oversee him.
Spinners: Yuzi Chahal and Ravi Ashwin
Yuzi Chahal and Ravi Ashwin are giving their services for Rajasthan Royals in this season. Both have kept the balance of the team in the middle order. Taking wickets and not giving much runs in the middle by them is one of the big reasons that Rajasthan Royals is being seen as one of the contenders to win the IPL in this season. Yuzi Chahal and Ravi Ashwin will get the ticket this time to play in T20 World Cup 2022.
Bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan
India will retain the core of the fast bowling from the 2021 T20 World Cup. Bumrah and Bhuvi are yet again likely to form the new ball partnership for India. Considering his performances so far, Harshal Patel will come in as the death specialist. T Natarajan is back to form and he might be the backup pacer ahead of the likes of Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur and Avesh Khan.
