India T20 Squad announces for World Cup; Standbys Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel arrive

India T20 world cup 2022 squad announced

T20 World Cup 2022 India squad announced: The ICC All India Senior Selection Committee for the Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia on Monday. As expected in India’s announced squad, Rohit Sharma has been named as the captain for the mega T20 event and his opening partner KL Rahul remains in the squad as co-captain. Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are the team’s batsmen.

Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel have returned from injury. On the other hand, Mohammad Shami will tour Australia as a standby player.
The selection committee is reportedly meeting in Mumbai to pick the squad for the home series against Australia and South Africa from September 20 as well as the 15-member squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 to be held in Australia.

Also on the agenda will be a review of India’s Asia Cup 2022 performance. India crashed out of the Super 4 stage after losses to Pakistan and eventual winners Sri Lanka. The Indian team has come under scrutiny for their experiments in the XI throughout the tournament.

Jasprit Bumrah’s fitness issues; In India’s T20 World Cup squad

Ahead of the pacer spearhead squad selection, good news awaits India if Jasprit Bumrah and T20 specialist Harshal Patel recover from their respective injuries. Bumrah missed Asia Cup 2022 due to back injury, Patel is at NCA recovering from rib injury.

Ravindra Jadeja also suffered a knee injury in the Asia Cup, underwent surgery and is unlikely to be included in the T20 World Cup squad.

With Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar one of the two to pick based on their performances in the Asia Cup as swing bowlers, it is certain that Avesh Khan will miss out. Despite Kumar’s brilliant spell of 5/4 against Afghanistan on Thursday, UP bowlers struggled in the death overs, conceding 19 and 14 runs in the Pakistan and Sri Lanka games respectively.

Arshdeep Singh has come in for a lot of criticism for his catch misses, his name comes up in the India-Pakistan rivalry for the wrong reasons, he could be one of the backup pacers in the death overs for the tour of Australia. The bonus is that he is a left-hander, so there is variety in the attack

With both Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant likely to be in the squad, it will be a real toss-up here. Karthik’s numbers are more fair than his in the Asia Cup, he lacked consistent runs in the Asia Cup. On the other hand, Panter was dropped in Pakistan’s first game followed by incredible scores of 14, 17 and 20*. However, India is unlikely to give Sanju Samson a ticket to Australia. Will it be at the expense of one from Panth or Karthik or will he remain as a backup keeper

Picking a balanced XI Ravindra Jadeja’s inadequacy is a problem for Sharma in picking a balanced XI. With Akshar Patel likely to be drafted in his place in the squad, the selectors’ task becomes easier. It remains to be seen if Deepak Hooda as the batting all-rounder can retain his place as the sixth bowler. Hardik Pandya is India’s main all-rounder in India’s T20 squad. Asia Cup 2022 proved that Rohit Sharma is still unfit to establish himself as one of the main bowling options in this Indian team.
