On Sunday, ICC named Team India’s playing 11 for the upcoming T20 World cup 2022. While the inclusion of Dinesh Karthik as the wicket-keeper shocked many, many look content with ICC’s prediction. Moreover, Rishabh Pant’s exclusion upset several. Take a look:
Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh
The return of Dinesh Karthik as a finisher, the improved fitness of Hardik Pandya, and the remarkable form of Suryakumar Yadav means India have power to burn in their middle order even if, as is possible, Rishabh Pant isn’t included.
The absence of Jasprit Bumrah is a significant blow however. Competition between the remaining bowlers is fierce, with final selection likely to come down to conditions on the day.ICC on its official website mentioned
India will start their campaign against arch-rival Pakistan on October 23. On the previous occasion, when the two teams had faced off, Pakistan had gotten the better of India. Hence, Rohit Sharma-led Men in Blue would like to revert in the best way possible.
