This time too, a surprising thing is coming out from the management side regarding the selection of players. Actually, Team India had a disappointing performance in the Asia Cup 2022. During this, the Indian team had a shortcoming which was exposed to the world, it was their bowling. At that time many people demanded that senior bowler Mohammed Shami should be included in the team to make the bowling more strong in the World Cup.

The captain of the team will be Rohit Sharma, followed by KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh.

There are 15 Indian players in this list tweeted by BCCI. It is believed that the Indian selectors must have selected these 15 players after much deliberation, because at present there is no dearth of promising players in India. After all this, now these players will have to put their full strength in this big ICC tournament to be played on Australian soil in October-November. The hopes of 140 crore countrymen will rest on the shoulders of all these players. Team India’s performance in last year’s T20 World Cup and this year’s recently concluded Asia Cup 2022 was quite disappointing. There was a big wake up call in front of the Indian team in the Asia Cup. No one expected the team to lose against cheaper teams in this subcontinental tournament even before the filing. However, now forgetting the old things, Rohit and Co. will be eyeing to rule the selectors and crores of Indian cricket fans again by winning the trophy by performing brilliantly in the World Cup to be held in Australia. In the T20 World Cup, the Indian team will be commanded by Rohit Sharma, while the vice-captaincy will be handled by batsman KL Rahul.
Jasprit Bumrah returns
Weak bowling was the reason for the Indian team’s loss to Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022. At that time the team missed Jasprit Bumrah. Jasprit Bumrah could not be a part of the team in the Asia Cup due to a back injury. However, now this Indian star bowling has returned to the team. Bumrah’s presence in the team in the T20 World Cup 2022 will strengthen the bowling order. Apart from Bumrah, the brilliant death over bowler Harshal Patel will also be seen playing for the team in the T20 World Cup.
