ICC events top the list for Cricket fans in importance. This year, the T20 World Cup is returning with its subsequent edition. It will happen in October-November, 2022 in Australia. All participating teams are highly motivated to add another prestigious ICC title to their trophy cabinets. India Cricket Team has directly qualified for the Super 12 stages of this years competition. Thanks to their high ranking in the ICC Mens T20I rankings.

The Indian Team was among the direct qualifiers for this years ICC t20 World Cup. The automatic qualification was open for eight spots in the Super 12 stages. Two among these were reserved for the winners and the runners-up of the last t20 World Cup.

The other six were decided using the ICC Mens T20I rankings. The six best-ranking teams bagged the remaining spots on the cutoff date of November 15, 2021. The rest of the four teams in the Super 12 will be decided through the Group stages. Eight teams are competing in the group stages. Only four will qualify to join the automatically qualified eight to make up the actual Super 12. 

The hunt for the Indian T20 Squad is on. The India Cricket Team has looked in great shape recently. The team is currently playing against West Indies after a successful tour of England. The Indians thrashed the Englishmen in the limited overs games, winning both ODI and t2OI series with a 2-1 margin. They drew the test series 2-2. Cricket India has been seen trying to use different players in these games. They are giving youngsters a chance and checking their fit. The batting order, too, has seen changes, and newer names have been tried regularly. Overall, the preparation for the years mega-event seems full throttle in the Indian camp. 

India Cricket Team had a below-par and a forgettable T20 World Cup last time. They were completely outclassed and humiliated by Pakistan and New Zealand in landmark defeats. India had to rely on Afghanistan to defeat New Zealand if they were to reach the tournaments semi-finals. The supposed tournament favourite team failed to qualify for the knockout stages. The dynamic duo of Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri thus failed to deliver India their second T20 World Cup. Now, the baton is passed to Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma.

India Team: Group Analysis

Group 2 seems like a fiery and thrilling group with the likes of the India Cricket Team, Pakistan, Bangladesh and South Africa. These stalwarts of T20 cricket would fight it out for the two semi-final spots. If Bangladesh can upset any one of these three T20 giants, they may have a chance at being the semifinalists. If that does happen, it would be a new addition to the ICC T20 World Cup Semifinals. Bangladesh has never played in the semi-finals of the marquee cricket tournament. 

India Cricket Team, Pakistan and South Africa have an array of options in the fast-bowling department. Australian pitches are known for their bounce and help for fast bowlers. That could count to be a definitive advantage in a climate like Australia. Overall, it looks like a group that would end up favouring the tropical contingents of India and Pakistan. Although South Africa boasts some T20 specialists, their team hasnt worked well as a contingent. They look to be more invested in franchisee cricket, which has taken out valuable team spirit from this impressive group of players.  

They will be looking to take advantage of this situation. They have evidently worked more on the fast-bowling. This time, they take the pitch in the T20 World Cup with a new captain-coach combination. The goal would be to seal a knockout berth. But, there would be flashbacks of last years humiliation at the hands of Pakistan, and theyd be eyeing revenge. Realistically, the expected progress for India would be to the semi-finals. In the knockouts, it can be anybodys game.  

India Fixtures list 

Team India will open the show on October 23, 2022, with the big one. Theyd again face arch-rivals Pakistan in an official ICC event. India Cricket team has always had the upper hand in these fixtures until last year. Pakistan defeated India by ten wickets in the T20 World Cup to mark Pakistans first victory over India in an ICC event. 

Winning the first game is always critical. For the India Cricket Team, itd be more so. There is revenge on the line and a winning start to their campaign. Theyd play again on October 27 against one of the qualifiers from the group stages. Then, on October 30, theyd be up against the Proteas. Theyd face Bangladesh on November 2. Finally, they end their Super 12 stages on November 6 against another of the group stage qualifiers. 

In the T20 World Cup, it is not just about winning and losing. Results will always be a part, but the margin of victory or defeat also matters. Net run rate (NRR) plays an essential role in T20 Cricket. Last year, the heavy losses at the hands of Pakistan and New Zealand brought curtains to the Indian campaign. This time, India Cricket Team will be looking not to repeat last years mistake.

Here is the complete list of fixtures for the India Cricket Team, along with the venues and timings of the games.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Undoubtedly, the India Cricket Team has a dangerous batting line-up comprising Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Surya Kumar Yadav. Reports state that Dinesh Karthik will be the finisher for team India. If that happens, the Indian T20 squad will be a force to reckon with. India has many wicketkeepers: KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, and Dinesh Karthik. They can rotate the wicketkeeper batters, which will undoubtedly surprise the opponents. 

The bowlers have looked in fine form as well. Most importantly, all-rounders like Hardik Pandya have been picking up regular wickets. Jasprit Bumrah, Md. Shami, etc., have all been in flying form. Overall, India Cricket Team has a settled and balanced unit. Theyre capable of putting a target for around 170 to 180 runs and simultaneously hurt down the target with an over or two to go.

Team India has a bad habit of getting complacent after winning a match by a significant margin. Moreover, India has to find a solution to counterattack death bowling as only two good overs of Jasprit Bumrah wont do the magic. They should look for another fast bowler. T Natarajan could be an option whose left arm angle can be destructive.

India Cricket Team should not adopt the theory of two spinners in Australia. They should focus on getting Hardik Pandya or Venkatesh Iyer back into the team. The bowling remains a weak link for team India. It doesnt concern them much because of the options at their disposal. But in significant matches, finding your consistent bowling attack can go on a long way. 

India T20 World Cup 2022 Squad Analysis

Indian Cricket Team

Team India has already declared their players for the upcoming World Cup. These would be the official India T20 Squad: Rohit Sharma (captain), Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Varun Chakravarthy, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami.

At first glance, the batting looks to be the more robust area. However, Australia promises to be the land of bowlers. Moreover, fans would be motivated by the bowling display that was on show in England. If the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Md. Shami gets the required help from the newbies; the Indian fans may be on track for a surprise. Issues like Virat Kohlis form and selection of a wicketkeeper remain unanswered. But this looks like a strong squad and the likely favourites. 

Key Players

The pick of the bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah, will be the most important player for India in the upcoming T20 World Cup. This is because the batting line-up has many stars, but the bowling seems like a one-person show. Weve recently seen in England that middle-order batters like Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Suryakumar Yadav are capable enough of rebuilding innings. But, the same cannot be said about the bowling attack. If experienced guns like Bumrah, Shami, and Chahal do not fire, there isnt much hope. Therefore, these players must be at their A-game to take India Cricket Team as deep as possible in the tournament. 

Players to watch out for

Many young guns like Ishan Kishan, Varun Chakravarty, Rahul Chahar, and Suryakumar Yadav have made it to the India T20 Squad. While Chahar, Kishan, and Chakravarty are new names and young players, many will be attentive to them. Suryakumar Yadav, or Sky, as he is popularly known, will have a critical role. He is someone who can bat at any given position, and so far, he hasnt had the chance with the national side in a significant competition. That is why Sky, in my opinion, is someone who could prove to be a game-changer for India.
