India were knocked out in the group stages of WT20 in 2021. They entered the tournament as one of the favorites but they went down without any fight in their first two games against Pakistan and New Zealand which virtually ended their world cup dreams. The new team management who looks like on a mission will be looking to end the trophy drought under Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid.
Lets predict India’s possibile playing 11 for T20 the world cup
India don’t have much headache with respect to their opening combination as the skipper Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, who is one of the most successful T20 batsmen for India to date as numbers suggests will occupy the opening slots.
India do have some other options like Mayank Agarwal, Ishan Kishan, Prithvi Shaw but they are definitely below KL Rahul in the pecking order.
The former skipper Virat Kohli will slot in at #3. Though the recent form of Virat Kohli has not been great, there are very few players better than Virat Kohli in the world let alone in India, when it comes to bouncy conditions.
The dashing wicket keeping batsman Rishabh Pant will take up the number 4 slot whose class and quality is for everyone to see.
Things get interesting for the #5 and #6 slots as India have Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, and Suryakumar Yadav for the #5 slot while Hardik Pandya and Venkatesh Iyer will be fighting for the #6 slot.
With the kind of form Suryakumar Yadav is in, he should be a straightforward choice for #5 slot, while Hardik Pandya, who is fit as before, as proving himself in this IPL will take the #6 slot as the batting all rounder.
The spin department will be handled by Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal while Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah are likely to complete the fast bowling unit.
