Team India is getting ready for the upcoming marquee ICC event – T20 World Cup 2022. After a dismal performance in the Asia Cup 2022, men in Blue will be looking for a strong show in the ICC marquee tournament and lift the trophy for the first time after 15 years.
Team India lost two back to back matches in the Super four stage of Asia Cup 2022 against Pakistan and Sri Lanka which left them out of contention for the finals. The close defeat in both the matches has left too many questions for the BCCI and team India to answer ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022. With just around a month left for it, the Men in Blue would hope to come out better prepared and fetch a fruitful outcome from it.
Other cricket nations like Australia, England and South Africa have already announced their best squads for the T20 World Cup 2022. BCCI is yet to announce the squad for team India and as per the reports it will be released after the last match of Asia Cup.
Meanwhile here we are presenting India’s Best Predicted Squad for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
