T20 World Cup

The Indian Cricket Team off-late has done very well in ICC tournaments but has failed to cross the last step. The ICC T20 World Cup is nearing. So, what is holding this champion side back? What are the flaws? Is the team not capable of winning the big trophies? The possible reason here can be the lack of match-winning players. The thing about these semifinal matches or other crunch games is that these games are not decided by team performances. It is about that one character that shows some spine and does well on that day.  

It was Grant Elliot back in 2015 for New Zealand, against South Africa, Yuvraj Singh was the one for India against Australia in 2011, and so on. So, who are the match winners for India this time? Here is an in-depth look: 

Suryakumar Yadav is a Match Winner at the ICC T20 World Cup 2022:

Surya has been rising through the ranks off-late. This classic player or the “Indian Michael Hussey” has made the global stage his own. Ever since making his debut in 2021, he has dominated the sport. Surya is currently ranked as the No. 2 T20 batter on the globe. SKY as he is better known played a dream inning of 117 runs against England. Later he followed it up with a splendid 70+ run innings against the West Indies. He can win games single-handedly.  

Dinesh Karthik can be a Match Winner for India:

The man who is aging like fine wine, Dinesh Karthik still has some finishing skills. He is the top finisher on the globe currently if we were to neglect Russell and Pandya. Karthik brings along with him the experience of a lifetime. He has revived his career under the guidance of Abhishek Nayar. His fitness is elite as well. His game sense is commendable. If Karthik remains fit and holds his form, his name should be the first on that flight to Australia.

Hardik Pandya is a Match Winner at the ICC T20 World Cup 2022: 

Last but not the least, it is Kung-Fu Pandya. What Hardik can do, no other player can. The Indian team tried many replacements like Vijay Shankar and Shivam Dube but the void of Hardik Pandya was never filled. He has started clocking 135+ kmph and this makes him more deadly. He has a knack for picking wickets. His strike rate in the last 3 overs becomes 180+. Now that’s something worth praising!  

Honorable Mentions:

  1. Rishabh Pant.
  2. Yuzi Chahal.
