India Team For T20 World Cup India T20 World Cup Captain
Get ready to witness back to back ICC T20 world cups within 12 months. While we just witnessed one last year, the next T20 world cup is not far away. The Indian team will be eagerly waiting to end the drought of the ICC trophy. The last ICC T20 world cup did not go well for India, as the Indian team even failed to reach the semi-finals.
Let bygones be bygones and focus on the upcoming ICC T20 world cup. The men's T20 world cup will start October 16, 2022, onward. The India Team For T20 World Cup will see many changes. Also, India T20 World Cup Captain is now Rohit Sharma as the captaincy has been taken from Virat Kohli.
Will the change in captaincy lead to a change in fortune? Well, only time will tell. The real headache for the selectors and Rohit Sharma will be selecting the best squad. Some of the players will be the same as the last T20 world cup. The players who seem to be confirmed selection are:
  • Rohit Sharma(Captain)
  • KL Rahul(Vice-Captain)
  • Virat Kohli
  • Surya Kumar Yadav
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Jasprit Bumrah
  • Ravindra Jadeja

A lot of options are there in the batting department. Have a look at the front-runners:

  • Ishan Kishan
  • Shreyas Iyer
  • Prithvi Shaw
  • Shikhar Dhawan

All Rounders Department

  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Venkatesh Iyer
  • Hardik Pandya
  • Shardul Thakur

The IPL Prospects

Before the T20 world cup, there will be the IPL. It's not rocket science to understand that IPL plays a significant role in the team selection for the T20 world cup. The performance of the players will determine their fortune.

Players Eyeing Comeback

Players who are out of the T20 team will be eyeing their comebacks. Upcoming matches and IPL will be the stage to send a strong message to the selectors. Have a look at some of the key players.

Shikhar Dhawan

Gabbar of Indian cricket will look to send a message to selectors. Currently, he is out from the T20 team, but who knows, he will be opening with Rohit if his IPL goes extraordinary.

Prithvi Shaw

Prithvi Shaw is another contender for the opening slot. Shaw is known for his fast play. However, consistency is the area where he gets criticism. He will be looking to make a case for himself too.

Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya, the popular all-rounder, is currently out from the team. He failed to perform with both the bat and ball in the last T20 world cup. A blistering performance in IPL can earn him his place back in the team.

Kuldeep Yadav

The chinaman of the Indian team, Kuldeep Yadav, is not in the team for any format. Kuldeep will be eyeing his return to the India Team For T20 World Cup, and IPL could be the perfect stage for him to do so.

Tough Fight For Many Spot

There will be a hard-fought battle to make a place in 15.

Ashwin VS Chahal VS others

The T20 world cup is in Australia, so the number of spinners is expected not to be more than 2 in the team. Since Ravindra Jadeja is a sure-shot selection, there could be a toss-up between Ravichandran Ashwin and Yujvendra Chahal unless another spinner like Kuldep or Akshar performs extremely well in the IPL.

Hardik Pandya VS Venkatesh Iyer

Currently, Venkatesh looks to be in, while Hardik is out. But, the performance in IPL and other bilateral series that India has to play before the world cup can change the scenarios. Hardik will also be seen captaining the Ahmedabad franchise. So, it will be interesting to see how Hardik performs and if he can make a comeback or not.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar VS Deepak Chahar

Both are swing bowlers and handy with the bat. The performances before the world cup will decide their fortune as both will get the chance to play several bilateral series.

Mohammad Shami VS Mohammad Siraj

The two fast bowlers will be in contention for the 15. The chances of getting both of them selected for the team could also be possible. However, if there could be a toss-up between the two, it would be interesting to see who will make the cut.

Ruturaj Gaikwad VS Shreyas Iyer

You will be wondering how these two battle for a place as Gaikwad is an opener while Iyer bats in the middle. Since Ishan Kishan can open and also bat in the middle order, the one place left for the grab can go either way.
