Team India is in Group 2 of the Super 12 in the T20 World Cup 2022. India will play 5 league matches against Pakistan, South Africa, Bangladesh, and 2 other qualifier teams. Team India’s first match is against Pakistan on October 23, 2022, at Melbourne Cricket Ground. Team India is experimenting a lot to build a solid team before going to Australia. Here in this article, we try to suggest the best playing XI for India VS Pakistan to win the match.
T20 World Cup 2022 India Squad: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh. Standby Players: Mohammad Shami, Shreyas Iyer, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Chahar.
If Team India is going with two fast bowlers, one medium pacer, and two spinners, then Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdip Singh, Axar Patel, Hardik Pandya, and R Ashiv should be the best picks. If you need three fast bowlers, you need Shami in the team because Bhuvneshwar’s performance in the death over is not good. In the event that Jasprit Bumrah is not available, get Deepak Chahar in the playing XI.
The betting lineup for India is good, but we need Rishav Pant back in the team as he has good experience playing the pressure game. We need two finishers, which are Hardik and Dinesh Karthik.
We need to focus on the game plan and select players accordingly. Below is the T20 World Cup 2022 India playing XI suggested by the ICC Cricket Schedule website.
