T20 World Cup 2022: India’s T20 World Cup Squad to be picked today

India squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia set to announce on Monday, according to reports.

Ace left-arm spinning allrounder Ravindra Jadeja is unlikely to make the team after suffering a serious “training-related” injury during the most recent Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

Pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel, who excluded from the squad for the Asia Cup, are reportedly on track to re-join the team now that they have healed from their ailments and have been routinely attending training sessions at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.

Harshal has taken 19 wickets in T20Is for India this year, trailing only Bhuvneshwar Kumar (31) ahead of him.

It will be interesting to know who, most likely Avesh Khan, moves aside for these two pacers. Arshdeep Singh, a left-arm seamer who excelled during the Asia Cup, would be tough for India to keep out.

Seam-bowling all-rounder Deepak Chahar has a good chance of making the team. With veteran leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal on hand, India may find it challenging to use Ravi Bishnoi, who impressed in the “Super 4” Asia Cup match against Pakistan.

The upcoming T20 World Cup scheduled to take place from October 16 to November 13.

India failed to advance to the final of the Asia Cup after placing third in the “Super 4” round. Before defeating Afghanistan, they lost to Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the “Super 4” round.
