ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Top 5 Fast Bowlers for Indian Cricket Team. 


The Fast Bowling lineup of the Indian Cricket Team looks the least settled. Who will make it to the ICC T20 World Cup 2022?

The ICC T20 World Cup is nearby and every team is looking to get their teams settled. The Indian cricket team is also looking to settle themselves. The fast-bowling unit of the Indian cricket team is something that hasn’t been very stable. The team will be keen on getting it settled before the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in October and November. There are many options on the plate. The team wants a good bowler in the powerplay, a good death bowler, and someone who can bowl a few overs in the middle. Here is an in-depth look at all the available options for team India: 

Jasprit Bumrah will Play for India at ICC T20 World Cup 2022: 

The number 1 all-format bowler in the world is set to lead the Indian pace attack at the ICC T20 World Cup. Bumrah started his international cricketing journey in Australia back in 2016 under the leadership of MS Dhoni. He was a part of the historic team that white-washed Australia in any format for the first time in their backyard. Since then, Jasprit has come a long way. He has added a ton of experience to his arsenal. His toe-crushing yorkers are laser-guided missiles. Jasprit is the second most successful T20 bowler for India after Yuzvendra Chahal. He consistently bowls at 145 kmph. His bouncer is very deadly. All-in-all Bumrah is a complete package. He has been groomed under Lasith Malinga at the Mumbai Indians’ camp.  

  • Pace: 145 kmph+  
  • Wickets: 67 
  • Average: 19.9 
  • Strike Rate: 18.3 
  • Economy: 6.5 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar Might Play for India at the ICC T20 World Cup 2022: 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar looks to have found his rhythm after the last edition of the ICC T20 World Cup. Kumar is a very experienced bowler. He was the one to get a wicket on the very first ball of his ODI debut. He was amazing in that series against Pakistan back in 2013. Bhuvi seems to have found that touchback. He is bowling exceptionally well in the powerplay and his death over the game has also found a rekindled spirit. Bhuvneshwar in the 2014 and 2015 seasons of the IPL was at the peak of his career. Bhuvi has a world-class in-swinger and an elite yorker too. He has been troubling international batsmen in all the recently concluded series under the leadership of Rohit.  

  • Pace: 130 kmph+ 
  • Wickets: 58  
  • Average: 25.6 
  • Strike Rate: 21.2 
  • Economy: 6.99 

Deepak Chahar Might Play for India at the T20 World Cup:

Deepak Chahar is out of action for the past few months but that doesn’t cut down his chances of playing at the ICC World Cup in Australia. Chahar is a fragile commodity but his availability can flip the game in the favor of India anytime. He is at the peak of his career. In the recently concluded series against the West Indies, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand. Deepak is the world record holder for the best spell in T20Is. He will give the team, three good overs in the powerplay and one in the middle. On his day, Deepak can win the games for you! He is a true match-winner.  

  • Pace: 135 kmph+  
  • Wickets: 26 
  • Average: 22.3 
  • Strike Rate: 16.1 
  • Economy: 8.27 

T Natarajan Might Play for India at the T20 World Cup: 

T Natarajan holds the record for making a debut in every format in a single tour overseas for India. Now that’s something not everyone has! This speaks volumes of the skill level he has. He was an integral part of the Indian team that conquered Gabba back in 2020. From playing in the streets of Tamil Nadu to playing for India, this left-arm pacer has had a journey of his own. He debuted in the IPL with the Punjab Kings after a splendid TNPL season. He wasn’t given many games but SRH saw the spark in him and drafted him. Ever since Nattu’s life has changed. He is the death bowler that any international team would love to have. He has an amazing set of variations.  

  • Pace: 135 kmph+ 
  • Wickets: 7 
  • Average: 17.4 
  • Strike Rate: 13.7 
  • Economy: 7.62

Mohammad Shami Might Play for India at the T20 World Cup 2022:

Mohammad Shami had a decent ICC T20 World Cup 2021. He had a poor game against Pakistan and was heavily trolled for that. These are instances that test a person’s character. Mohammad Shami from then on was dropped from the white-ball circuit. I have added his name to the list because of the IPL performances that he has given. He is a big reason for the success of the Gujarat Titans. His spell against the LSG team in the very first game of the season for the new teams was elite. Shami is the spearhead of the Gujarat bowling line-up. He alongside Lockie is bowling 145 kmph consistently and is troubling batting line-ups. Shami has a truck-load of experience. He can be an ideal fit.  

  • Pace: 145 kmph+ 
  • Wickets: 18 
  • Average: 31.6 
  • Strike Rate: 19.8 
  • Economy: 9.5
