India T20 World Cup 2022 Team, Squad, Captain, Players List, Live Updates: The All-India Senior Selection Committee met on Monday to pick India’s squads for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia and for the T20I series against Australia and South Africa at home. Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel, who have regained fitness, were named in India’s 15-man squad for T20 World Cup. However, veteran pacer Mohammad Shami has been named among four reserve players for the multi-nation tournament. Bumrah, who was suffering from back injury and Harshal, who had a side strain, had done an intense rehabilitation programme at the NCA and the BCCI medical team has deemed them fit for the series. India will play their first match against Pakistan on October 23.

After the All-India Senior Selection Committee picked India’s squads for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, former India cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin was surprised and he tweeted, “Surprised at the omission of Shreyas Iyer and Md. Shami from the main squad.”

Almost immediately after the Indias World Cup team was announced, the names of Mohammed Shami and wicket-keeper batter Sanju Samson started doing the rounds on Twitter and eventually started trending.

“If I was the chairman of the selection committee, Shami is definitely in the team. We are playing in Australia, the guy’s got the real action, the guy’s got bounce, he can bare the moment and he can get on early wickets, so I would have probably got Shami instead of Harshal Patel. Yes, Harshal Patel is a good bowler, no doubt about it, but Mohammad Shami is the right guy, I mean they can say not the scheme of things, he’s only for test cricket or one day cricket but we are playing in Australia. That guy has done well last IPL, so Shami is the must in my team.” – says former India captain and ex-chairman of selection committee Krishnamachari Srikkanth
The 15-member India squad for the T20 World Cup starting October 16 has a notable exclusion – Mohammed Shami. The senior fast bowler has been kept as a stand-by despite India’s death-overs travails at the recent Asia Cup. (READ MORE)
India’s main hope at the T20 World Cup in Australia is Hardik Pandya and he will rightly be cotton-wooled at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore when his team mates take on Australia and South Africa. The worry of what if he gets injured is too risky to even contemplate. (READ MORE)
Of the two wicketkeepers in the Rohit Sharma-led squad, Rishabh Pant gives India the option of playing the left-handed batsman as a free-moving ‘floater’, while Dinesh Karthik has a formidable reputation as a ‘finisher’.
Dinesh Karthik will be a part of Team India in the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.
Dreams do come true 💙
Ravi Bishnoi and Avesh Khan, who were part of India’s Asia Cup squad, have failed to find a place in the 15-member squad. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja ruled out due to a knee injury.

Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh rooted for Jammu Kashmir’s speedster Umran Malik. Malik, who has bagged 22 wickets in 14 IPL games at the Indian Express Idea Exchange admitted that he loved taking the wickets of international cricketers with the bouncers and yorkers.
Who all wants to see today Mr 150 Umran malik in the World Cup team for India ?? Can be our trump card on those bouncy pitches in Australia.. Any thoughts ?

Both Bhuvneshwar and Chahar are swing bowlers, it’s difficult to pick both of them in the squad. It will be interesting to see who will go to Australia. Former cricketers had also questioned the selectors after they ignored Mohammad Shami for the Asia Cup. Former India coach Ravi Shastri said, ‘I think the selection could have been better, especially for the fast bowlers. You know the conditions here. There’s not much in it for the spinner. I was quite surprised that you came here with just four fast bowlers (including Hardik). You needed that extra one… someone like Mohammed Shami sitting at home and cooling his heels baffles me. ‘
All eyes will be on the fitness reports of Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel and whether they have regained their full fitness. They both gave a fitness test at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru on Saturday.
