The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently announced the Team India 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The Men in Blue are gearing up for the coveted tournament after a disappointing display in the Asia Cup 2022. As it was previously reported, Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel are making their return to the squad after recovering from their respective injuries.
Team India squad has been revealed
India are set to play two limited-overs series at home against Australia and South Africa before heading to the showcase event in Australia. Rohit Sharma will lead the side with KL Rahul as his deputy in the playing XI. Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli has found his form with a sensational maiden T20I ton against Afghanistan, will form the spine of the team alongside Suryakumar Yadav.
Hardik Pandya has been joined by Axar Patel in the all-rounder contingent after the unfortunate injury to Ravindra Jadeja during the Asia Cup. Deepak Hooda has also retained his place in the squad. It will be interesting to see how the Men in Blue utilize the two wicketkeeper-batters, Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik, in the upcoming tournament.
The spin twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal will play an important role Down Under with their immense experience in the shortest format of the game. The return of ace fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel provides a much-needed boost to the Indian bowling lineup, which underperformed in the Asia Cup.
Veteran pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who redeemed himself with a great bowling display against Afghanistan, will be India’s biggest threat with the new ball, while the young Arshdeep Singh will be hoping to continue his death bowling exploits in Australia.
India’s squad for T20 World Cup 2022:
Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, R Pant (WK), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvenshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh
Standby players: Mohammed Shami, Shreyas Iyer, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Chahar
