Indian Team For World Cup 2022
We already reported that the All-India Senior Selection Committee met on Monday and selected the Indian Team For World Cup 2022, which will begin on October 23 in Australia. On October 23, 2022, India will take on Pakistan in their T20 World Cup 2022 opener at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Team India competes in Pool 2 alongside South Africa, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. It will be fascinating to watch if India makes any roster adjustments after their performance at the Asia Cup. Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel have been added to the roster immediately due to their high likelihood of being ready in time, but it remains unclear who they have replaced.

T20 World Cup Teams
Teams like Australia, England, New Zealand, and Afghanistan are in group 1. Following the qualifier round, two additional teams will form separate groups. There are teams from Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates, Namibia, Netherlands, West Indies, Zimbabwe, Scotland, and Ireland in the qualifying round.
Sri Lanka, Namibia, the UAE, and the Netherlands are in group A for the qualification round. Group B consists of the West Indies, Zimbabwe, Scotland, and Ireland. The top two teams from each group will advance to the super 12 round following the qualification round.
The tournament’s reigning champion is Australia. Australia won the inaugural T20 World Cup last year after defeating New Zealand by seven wickets.
India just put on a lackluster performance at Asia Cup 2022, failing to advance past the semifinals. The team led by Rohit Sharma was eliminated from the competition after losing back-to-back games to Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the super four stages.
Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022 championship match. India will play a T20I series against South Africa and Australia before the ICC T20 World Cup in 2022.
India Playing XI T20 World Cup
Here’s what our thought on the most used playing XI for the T20 World Cup:
Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and KL Rahul are safe bets. Kohli’s form was the greatest worry heading into the Asia Cup, but kohli went on to record two fifties and one century and was obviously India’s best batter on display. Suryakumar Yadav is another obvious choice, given his fearless approach to the Indian team.
Suryakumar Yadav’s innings against Hong Kong in the Asia Cup Group encounter, where he hammered 68 runs off 26 balls, driving India to a score of more than 190, should dispel any doubts.
The wicketkeeping position is expected to be the most difficult for the selectors to fill. The biggest question is whether the selectors chose Rishabh Pant or Dinesh Karthik. Dinesh Karthik has performed well as a finisher this year, and he was benched in the Asia Cup for just some matches. Pant, on the other hand, hasn’t done much in the shorter format this year, with his top score being 52 against the West Indies in February 2022.
In my opinion, Hardik Pandya is the best option for a frontline all-rounder. After leading Gujarat Titans to an IPL title, he went on to captain India in a Twenty20 International series against Ireland. With Ravindra Jadeja’s recent surgery, it’s likely that he won’t be able to play in the tournament; as a result, Axar Patel should be inserted into the lineup. Given how ineffective he was in the Asia Cup as a finisher, it will be interesting to see if Deepak Hooda keeps his starting spot.
When it comes to bowling, the best options are guys like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, and Arshdeep Singh. The selectors may be tempted to put Deepak Chahar in the lineup after seeing Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s late-game performance in the Asia Cup matches against Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Even though Mohammed Shami did not appear in any Twenty20 Internationals following last year’s World Cup, there have been growing calls for him to be included following the Asia Cup fiasco and his stellar performance for Gujarat Titans in the IPL, where he took 20 wickets in just 16 matches at an average of 24.40.
Team India has struggled to take early wickets, but Shami has a habit of doing just that. When choosing a spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin are safe bets because they perform well under pressure. The Asia Cup Super 4 match between India and Pakistan could be the one to set the cat among the pigeons if Ravi Bishnoi performs well.
