Prepare to see back-to-back ICC T20 world cups in the next 12 months. While we only had one last year, the next T20 world cup is not far off. The Indian team will be hoping to break the ICC trophy drought. The previous ICC T20 world cup did not go well for India, as the team did not even make it to the semifinals.
Allow bygones to be bygones and concentrate on the next ICC T20 world cup. The men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled to start on October 16, 2022, with significant changes to the India Team For T20 World Cup. In addition, Rohit Sharma has taken over Virat Kohli’s captaincy of the India T20 World Cup.
Will a change in captaincy bring about a change in fortune? The only way to know is to wait and see. The true challenge for the selectors and Rohit Sharma will be putting together the most incredible group. Some players will be the same as in the last T20 world cup. The following players appear to be specific selections:
- Rohit Sharma (Captain)
- KL Rahul (Vice-Captain)
- Virat Kohli
- Surya Kumar Yadav
- Rishabh Pant
- Jasprit Bumrah
- Ravindra Jadeja
Players In Contention
The Indian bench strength is deep across the board. Numerous players compete for each position on India’s T20 World Cup team. The opening combination appears to be set with Rohit and Rahul, but the same cannot be said about the middle order.
A lot of options are there in the batting department. Have a look at the frontrunners:
- Ishan Kishan
- Shreyas Iyer
- Prithvi Shaw
- Shikhar Dhawan
All Rounders Department
- Ravindra Jadeja
- Venkatesh Iyer
- Hardik Pandya
- Shardul Thakur
Spin Bowling Department
- Ravichandran Ashwin
- Yujvendra Chahal
- Varun Chakravarthy
- Kuldeep Yadav
Fast Bowling Department
- Bhuvneshwar Kumar
- Mohammad Shami
- Harshal Patel
- Deepak Chahar
- Mohammad Siraj
Tough Fight For Many Spot
There will be a hard-fought battle to make a place in 15.
Ashwin VS Chahal VS others
There shouldn’t be more than two spinners on the side because the T20 world cup will be held in Australia. Suppose another spinner, such as Kuldep or Akshar, does exceptionally well in the IPL. In that case, it may be a toss-up between Ravindra Jadeja and Yujvendra Chahal, as Jadeja is a foregone conclusion.
Hardik Pandya VS Venkatesh Iyer
Venkatesh appears to be in right now, whereas Hardik appears out. However, the IPL and other bilateral series that India must play before the world cup could alter the situation. Hardik will serve as the franchise captain for Ahmedabad. Because of this, it will be intriguing to see how Hardik plays and whether or not he can make a comeback.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar VS Deepak Chahar
Both are skilled batters and swing bowlers. Since both will have the opportunity to participate in multiple bilateral series before the world cup, their fortune will depend on how well they perform.
Mohammad Shami VS Mohammad Siraj
The 15 will be up for grabs, with the two quick bowlers competing. It’s also feasible that both of them will be chosen for the team. It would be interesting to see who would be chosen if it were a toss-up between the two.
Ruturaj Gaikwad VS Shreyas Iyer
You might be curious about the competition between these two batsmen since Gaikwad opens while Iyer bats in the middle, and Ishan Kishan can bat in the middle of the order and open; thus, there is just one position up for grabs.
