5 Players Who Are Key For India In T20 WC 2022

India won the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007. They went into the tournament with the experience of playing just a single game. India emerged winners surprising the entire cricketing fraternity. This gave birth to the world’s richest cricketing league, the IPL.

It was expected that India would go on to T20 World Cup titles for fun. But India for all its richness of talents just has a single title to show. They are desperately on the lookout for a second T20 World Cup title. 

We look at 5 Key Players For India In T20 World Cup 2022

#5 Yuzvendra Chahal

He was visibly hurt at being overlooked for the T20 World Cup last year. Yuzvendra Chahal since then has upped his game to another level. He remains India’s biggest wicket-taker in the middle-overs. On the large grounds of Australia, Chahal will play an even more important role. If he has a good tournament, then India is sure to go a long way in the tournament.

#4 Suryakumar Yadav

He is arguably India’s finest limited-overs batsman currently. Suryakumar Yadav is a 360-degree player. He put on a batting masterclass in the third T20I against England. His 117 was one of the best T20I innings. It was an innings waiting to happen.

Yadav right since his debut in March 2021 has gone on to play many such stellar knocks. Yadav has not yet played in Australian conditions, the place where the world cup is scheduled to happen. But expect nothing less audacious from Yadav.

#3 Jasprit Bumrah 

He is the world’s best bowler across formats. For all of Bumrah’s talent, a medal wearing the national colours is still alluding him. He will have the big prize on his mind when he visits Australian shores for the World Cup. Bumrah has tasted great success down under. India needs a fit and roaring Bumrah for the big tournament. The opponents will be wary of India’s biggest match-winner with the ball.

#2 Hardik Pandya

There is something about the Mumbai Indians’ gene that another player (former) from the team features on this list. Hardik Pandya showed his big tournament prowess earlier this year when he led Gujarat Titans to the IPL title. He has been in top form with both bat and the ball. Pandya’s hitting form will come to the forefront in the truer pitches of Australia. India will need all of Pandya’s all-round skills to go all the way.

#1 Rohit Sharma

There couldn’t be anyone better than him leading the team into the World Cup. Rohit Sharma is the most successful IPL captain having led the side to 5 IPL titles in 8 years. Sharma knows what it takes to win the big titles. He is a shrewd tactician who knows the art of winning. Sharma likes to stay ahead of the game. 

He is proactive in his approach and takes the game head-on. India will also need Sharma the destructive opener to come good. The team knows the value of a great start in a tournament like the T20 World Cup. It is now up to India’s most important player to turn up wearing multiple hats and help the nation lay their hands on a trophy that has remained elusive for more than a decade.
