India’s Bowling Attack For T20 World Cup 2022:
The T20 World Cup 2022 is not that far away and we are yet to have a proper team moving towards finalization. A lot of tough decisions are to be made that will keep selectors awake. As India has a long list of batters available, there are questions about the bowlers that India can be considered as its best options for the squad to play in T20 World Cup 2022.
Let’s have a look at India’s Bowling Attack For T20 World Cup 2022
India for the Bilateral series:
Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Umran Malik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur.
The list of the 16 best bowlers looks like a quality set up but their form and how they have been performing over past one year matters for their selection in the squad. Let’s take a look at a few key names that have been performing for the squad at their best level and can make it to the India team.
The Sure Selections:
Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal
The 4 bowlers, 2 pacers and 2 spinners can be considered as sure shot inclusions in the world cup team. Jasprit Bumrah is the lead of pace attack with Bhuvneshwar who has gotten back his dream form.
Ravindra Jadeja is a perfect all-rounder that India desperately needs. He has shown his good form playing for India be it for Tests or shorter format. Yuzvendra Chahal is a good partner to Jadeja who has shown great display with his bowling in recent times and has proved to be a quality intelligent bowler.
Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Harshal Patel
Harshal Patel has made quite a buzz in the IPL scenes and finally made it to the national squad last year. Even though he hasn’t shown his best performance, he is a slow killer India can make use of.
The youngsters, Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik have already gained fans owing to their natural talent. They are still to make some mark in the international scenes and next few series are going to be crucial for their selection in the national squad.
The Old bees:
Mohammad Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin
The two bowlers have played a crucial role in past for India to win Test matches. They have played equally good role when it comes to shorter format too but their consistency has been questionable. If they are included in the next few matches to be played before the world cup and they perform well, they sure can win their spot in the squad.
To be allrounders:
Hardik Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel
Hardik Pandya is going to be the first selection in the World Cup squad. He has made a permanent position as a finisher allrounder. With his form, India is going to benefit from his skills a lot.
Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel are important allrounders who will have crucial role to play in the World cup 2022 as bowlers. Their performance with bat and ball will help India gain better position in the cup.
Our selected bowlers for the T20 World cup 2022 squad:
Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendar Chahal, Harshal Patel and Umran Malik.
Hope India selectors finalize the squad soon and the squad starts preparing for the cup as soon as possible.
