The team for the next T20 World Cup in Australia, which begins on October 16, was unveiled by the BCCI on Monday. Little has changed from the Asia Cup team that fell short of the championship game. Expectedly, Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal have returned to the team after healing from their wounds. The batting order is unchanged, except for all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s injury-related absence, while Mohammed Shami returns as a backup option.

The performance of India’s top three batsmen will determine the country’s destiny at the World Cup in Australia, according to former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria. Kaneria continues to have concerns about the consistency of captain Rohit Sharma and vice-captain KL Rahul, even though Kohli has shown excellent indications of getting back to his best during the Asia Cup.

The skipper Rohit Sharma and his opening partner KL Rahul received a severe warning from him over their performance. The former Pakistani spinner believes the duo must take their foot off the gas or else India risk suffering the same fate as they did in the Asia Cup.

“Even if Virat Kohli is back in form, players like Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul need to make huge runs. If not, their campaign would go in the same manner as it did in the Asia Cup “On his YouTube channel, Kaneria remarked.

Harshal Patel, a death overs expert who was receiving treatment with Bumrah at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, will also be traveling with the squad to Australia. Umran Malik, who excelled in the Indian Premier League, was left off the list.

While Umran’s exclusion would not harm India’s preparations, former Pakistan cricketer Danish Kaneria said that, given the conditions in Australia, the Kashmiri bowler should have been included in the standby list. Umran Malik may have been one of India’s standby players, allowing their hitters to train against a bowler who can regularly throw quickly. Kaneria threw in.

After losing to Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 round of the continental event, India was unable to proceed to the finals.

On October 24, The Men In Blue begin their offensive on Pakistan. In the T20 World Cup match that was played in Dubai last year, Babar Azam and company overcame the Men in Blue.
