Rohit Sharma will lead the India T20 World Cup squad 2022. Sharma will be under huge pressure after India’s early exit from the Asia Cup 2022 however they have put in impressive performances against Australia and South Africa at home.
Analysis of India T20 World Cup squad 2022
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli form India’s top order in the World T20 2022 which can easily be rated as the strongest in Wt20 2022. All 3 players are technical sound and are currently in form.
Indian Middle Order and Finishers Comprises of Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik. Suryakumar Yadav is currently the best ranked T20I batsman of India, and he has had a mind-blowing 2022 so he will be very dangerous in the mega event. Pandya and Dinesh Karthik, both have the similar role that is to play aggressive cricket and perform the finishing role as well. Pant and Hooda are the 2nd choice batsmen in this middle order.
India have got a good looking spin attack. The spin attack will be led by Y Chahal who is a T20 expert. Axar Patel and Ravi Ashwin are the other 2 options available, amongst whom Axar has been phenomenal in T20 Cricket lately.
India’s pace attack looks the only weak link as they don’t have the services of Jasprit Bumrah and he has been replaced by Mohammad Shami who has not played any T20I cricket recently . Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s form is also questionable owing to his death bowling skills. While Arshdeep Singh and Harshal Patel have showed strong performances in recent home series.
