After India’s exit from the Asia Cup which was affected by the absence of the Pace duo of Jaspirt Bumrah and Harshal Patel, the men in blue led by Rohit Sharma have started on their journey towards Melbourne to contest for ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
On Monday, the BCCI announced Team India’s 15 Member squad with 6 Stand-In players, the team will be led by Rohit Sharma and his deputy KL Rahul. While they both will open the innings and with the current return to form of Virat Kohli the middle order looks even more formidable with Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, and Dinesh Karthik. Ravichandran Ashwin along with Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel will be handling the spin department. And with the return of Harhsal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah, the pace battery looks ominous with Bhuvenashwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya being in fine form.
While Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the tournament due to knee surgery, Axar Patel and Hardik Pandya will have an added responsibility to cover up for the Rockstar. There were some stand-in players as well that included the likes of Mohammed Shami, Deepak Chahar, Ravi Bishnoi, and Shreyas Iyer.
While the team looks amazing but there are lots of talks regarding the players who missed out, the likes of Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Avesh Khan, Umran Malik, and Kuldeep Yadav missed to make the team and were thought of to be in the race.
