T20 World Cup 2021 – 2022: The selectors have again picked the same frontline batsman for the 2022 World Cup, with only two minor changes from last year.
T20 World Cup 2021-2022: What Has Changed For India’s team?
Now the question arises whether the selectors have selected the winning team for the 2022 T20 World Cup to be held in Australia.
Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the World Cup due to an injury
To begin with, Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the World Cup due to injury. An injury has caused so much turmoil in India’s plans, as can be seen in the Asia Cup selections. Jadeja’s knee injury has upset India’s balance. Both batting and bowling – and the plans must be drawn anew. Apart from this, Hardik Pandya’s fitness matters a lot. It is very important for them to stay fit till the start of the tournament.
In Jadeja’s absence, Pandya is now India’s fifth bowler
Jadeja’s absence simply means Pandya is now India’s fifth bowler. And he is expected to bowl the full quota of four overs. Both of which Jadeja Pandya used to bowl together. Now all this can be seen on Pandya.
Three fast bowlers, two spinners, and six of the Pandya
Three fast bowlers, two spinners, and six of the Pandya bowling options are the optimal formula for bowling options. Two all-rounders are among the bowling options. Thereby, Rohit Sharma gets the required balance in T20 cricket. Unfortunately, this isn’t possible. Axar Patel is not in the same class as Jadeja, R Ashwin is not your typical T20 all-rounder, and Rohit has not relied heavily on Deepak Hooda. Maybe the captain can use Deepak Chahar as a late-coming attacking batsman. But he is in reserve, not in the main team.
Chahar was reserved for the 2021 T20 World Cup
Chahar was also in reserve for the 2021 T20 World Cup. Which is the same substitute as Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and at his average pace, you can only feed one of them. Kumar was ineffective in the UAE last year. Although he has built up form and fitness over the past ten months. Chahar was mostly out injured during this period.
Harshal Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, both missed out on 2021
Harshal Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, both missed out in 2021. This is an error correction. Because they are both T20 specialist bowlers. So is Arshdeep Singh, who will be Jasprit Bumrah’s death-bowling ally. Both Patel and Bumrah will be under scrutiny for fitness reasons and this is where Chahar/Mo. Shami needs to be ready in reserve.
