Since Jasprit Bumrah is unable to compete, Team India will require a bowling captain for the next T20 World Cup, which begins on October 16 in Australia. In Rohit Sharma’s lineup, Mohammad Shami took the place of the injured star, and it seems that the team’s management opted for experience. The bowler, who hasn’t participated in a T20 International game since the T20 World Cup, was essential to Gujarat Titans’ success in the IPL 2022 and concluded the season with 20 wickets, good for the sixth-highest total in the league. However, since “he always delivers,” Bhuvneshwar Kumar is “still Rohit’s go-to guy,” according to former star Suresh Raina.

“Bhuvi, a bowler, has years of experience. He did a good job. You sometimes go for runs, but he still has that swing. He still serves as the captain’s go-to player because he constantly delivers when it matters “Raina remarked.

“In addition to scoring a century against Afghanistan, Virat bowled well and claimed five wickets. He can hit the area, throw a knuckleball, and swing well “He continued, ”

In 79 T20Is, Bhuvneshwar has taken 85 wickets, including two five-wicket hauls. India and Pakistan will compete in the Super 12 round of their competition on October 23 in Melbourne. Along with Bumrah, India is also without Ravindra Jadeja and Deepak Chahar. Jadeja had a knee injury this year in the Asia Cup. Chahar was initially a member of the reserves but was unable to fly to Australia due to a back problem. With games against Australia on Monday and New Zealand on Wednesday, India still has two exhibition matches remaining.

Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, and Mohammad Shami make up the Team India squad.
