ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022: BCCI Announced 15-Man Squad For The Tournament. The day has finally come, as India has announced its squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022, to kickstart from Oct 16th in Australia. Rohit Sharma will lead the 15-member team.
Team India was one of the last edition’s favorites to win the trophy. But, they lost the crucial opening match against Pakistan, which eventually made it difficult for them to bounce back. They will be going with a better batting line-up, and the return of a form of Virat Kohli is a sigh of relief.
India will miss the services of Ravindra Jadeja, who got injured in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022. India’s pace bowling attack got exposed in the Asia Cup, but the return of Bumrah and Harshal Patel is expected to give strength to the pace attack.
India performed below expectations and was knocked out before reaching the finals of Asia Cup 2022. They would have realized the mistakes, and the strategy needed to adapt for the marquee event would surely be worked out.
Team India still has 6 T20 matches to play (3 each against Australia and South Africa), before the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, which will help them to fine-tune their strategy.
Overall, we feel this side is capable enough to perform better in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022, provided they play fearless and sensible cricket and don’t panic in crucial situations.
