The T20 World Cup is scheduled to begin on Oct. 16, 2022 in Australia. Matches will take place from 16th October to 13 November across 7 venues. A total of 16 teams will contest in two groups. Apart from Group A and B there is also a Group named Super 12.
The eight teams that have made it directly to the Super12 stage for the T20 World Cup 2022 were the finalists of the 2021 edition. India is a part of the Super 12 Group 2 along with Pakistan, Bangladesh and South Africa. India, as part of the Super 12 stage of the event, will play its first match against Pakistan on October 23 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
As for the warm-ups though, team India plays Australia on October 17 and New Zealand on October 19. Both matches will take place at the Gabba in Brisbane.
Keeping its best foot forward Indian team has come up with a strong playing 11. The top and middle order batsman will be captain Rohit and KL Rahul, followed by Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya. Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik have been selected as the two wicket keepers. Pant being the left-handed batsman also makes him the batsman of choice on the bouncy pitches of Australia.
With fast bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel who recently recovered from their injuries the bowling will be essentially a strong front from team India. After a thorough evaluation, both pacers were found to be fit to feature for India in the T20 World Cup. Partnering the two quicks in the pace department will be Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh, both of whom showed a great performance at the Asia Cup. Yuzvendra Chahal with his strong form as a leg spinner will be leading India’s spin attack along with the veteran R Ashwin.
All rounder Axar Patel has filled the void for Ravindra Jadeja along with Deepak Hooda. Shami, has also made a surprise comeback to the T20 World Cup after his exclusion from India’s Asia Cup squad was widely criticised by commentators and experts alike.
The Indian squad for T20 World Cup 2022, Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh.
India is a top contender to lift their 2nd T20 World Cup trophy. Let us see if Rohit Sharma-led team India is all set to win the global event? India´s win will be a mix of strong performance from the players, strategy inspired by experience and a good amount of luck that plays ín favour of team India.
Virat Kohli is currently in a very strong form and this might work really in a positive way for Men in Blue. He has shown a great performance in terms of scoring runs and also completing his 71st century now. With a blend of both experience and good form Virat Kohli knows how to anchor the team in the time of need.
Also now since Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel have recovered from injuries they are supposed to make a strong comeback as fast paced bowlers. This can play in favour of team India.
Another major factor contributing to India’s win can be that our players have won many tournaments previously against Australia on their land. This can be a big motivation for team India.
After a long wait of 15 years the Indian fans are waiting for the trophy to be home this year and no one wants to miss the journey that takes us to the final day. There is a lot of excitement among the cricket fans who are looking forward to all the matches and are constantly searching for platforms and ways in which they can stream the live cricket matches.
