India’s Best Predicted Squad for T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia: With team India’s campaign in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 getting almost done and dusted, the Men in Blue will now gear up for the all-important T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. The show-piece ICC event will be staged Down Under, starting 22nd October.
Rohit Sharma and Co are on verge of making an exit from the Asia Cup 2022 after suffering two consecutive defeats in the Super 4 stage against Pakistan and Sri Lanka respectively. India now requires a lot of luck and assistance from other teams to bring up favourable results.
India’s Asia Cup 2022 loss is nothing but a stern dent in the Indian lineup. Despite performing exceedingly well in the bilaterals, India slips down in the multi-nation tournament. This has been India’s story in every big tournament so far, and this really needs to be broken.
Nevertheless, team India will now look ahead to the T20 World Cup 2022 which is the ultimate goal for any T20I side in the world. With just around a month left for it, the Men in Blue would hope to come out better prepared and fetch a fruitful outcome from it.
Notably, Australia, England and South Africa have already announced their formidable squad for the T20 World Cup 2022. The BCCI is yet to name India’s squad for the same and the reports suggest that the Indian lineup will be out in the next couple of days.
Here is India’s Best Predicted Squad for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
India’s Squad for T20 World Cup 2022 [Predicted]:
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan will be India’s opening options for the T20 World Cup 2022 with Rohit Sharma leading the side and KL Rahul acting as the deputy. Virat Kohli has returned back in form and is scoring runs consistently. He will be the man to complete India’s top order.
Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant will be on the side as middle-order batters. Although Rishabh Pant hasn’t performed well in the recent past, India desperately needs a left-hand batter in the middle order and so far India hasn’t found a worthy alternative for him.
Besides the aforementioned names, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda and Hardik Pandya will be the other middle-order batters. While Hardik will be mostly used as a balancer in the squad, Karthik and Hooda have been extensively tested to provide solid finishes to the innings.
The spin bowling options for team India would be Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s inclusion in the Indian team for T20 World Cup is subject to fitness. If Jadeja fails to prove his fitness, Axar Patel can be added to the squad as his replacement.
The fast bowling unit will create a huge difference in Australia. The likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel and Arshdeep Singh will form India’s primary pace attack. In order to add a spice element, Umran Malik’s searing pace can be added to the squad.
India’s Predicted Squad for T20 World Cup 2022: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Ravindra Jadeja/Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh.
