Asia Cup 2022 is set to commence on August 27. India has announced the squad for the tournament and Rohit Sharma is set to lead the team. India will play their opening match against Pakistan on August 28 in Dubai. Asia Cup 2022 will be a crucial platform for India to prepare for the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is set to take place in Australia in October. Many players who are part of the squad in the Asia Cup 2022 might be part of the T20 World Cup 2022 as well. However, there might be a few changes in the India squad.

For the openers, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul might be part of the T20 World Cup 2022 as well. Both of them have been fabulous for the team at the top order so far. For a one-down position, Virat Kohli might again take the spot in ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

There might not be much change in the other batsmen too. Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, and Deepak Hooda might be picked up as middle-order batsmen. Pant will keep the stumps as he is the top wicketkeeper batter for the team currently.

For the lower order, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, and Ravindra Jadeja will be strong contenders. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja will also perform a role in the bowling. While Pandya will be a crucial seam all-rounder for the team, Jadeja will act as a secondary spinner.

There might be big chances in the bowling department. In Asia Cup 2022, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Ravi Bishnoi have been picked in the squad. However, since the Australian grounds have flat surfaces, spinners might not be the priority for the team.

India might keep Yuzvendra Chahal and drop Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi. Kuldeep Yadav might be picked in the squad as the left-armer will give more variations to the spin attack. Yadav might have also got a ticket to Asia Cup 2022, however, his injuries post IPL 2022 kept him out of the field for a long time.

Among pacers, there might be a big change in India’s squad for T20 World Cup 2022. Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah could not make it to Asia Cup 2022 due to ongoing injuries. However, they are highly expected to be part of the T20 World Cup 2022. Arshdeep Singh might still make it to the squad since he is a left-arm pacer and has been impressive so far in the shortest format.

Avesh Khan might be evicted from the squad to make way for Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will still be a crucial pacer for the team. The right-arm pacer gave a spectacular performance in the last T20I series against England and South Africa.

India’s Predicted Squad ICC T20 World Cup 2022:

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel.
