T20 World Cup 2022: India squad to be announced on 15th September

The T20 World Cup will be held in Australia from 22nd October. If the sources are to be believed then the selection will heavily depend on the performance in Asia Cup. The Asia Cup final is scheduled on 11th September.

Selectors are expected to meet in Mumbai for finalising the squad. India will start its campaign against Pakistan on 23rd October. Before that India is expected to play at least 2 matches against arch rivals Pakistan in T20 format in the upcoming Asia Cup.

The ICC has released following guidelines to the Cricket boards for consideration while selecting the squad:

  • ICC has set a DEADLINE of September 16th for the SUBMISSION of SQUADS
    Each team is allowed to name 15 Member squads.
  • Each participating team in the tournament may travel with a contingent of up to 30 members.
  • A total of 23 members will be part of the official squad comprising 15 players and eight support staff.

ICC also mentioned the rules regarding replacements. Replacement in the final 15 member squad can only be made due to serious medical cases. The ICC committee will make the final call on the replacements requested.

Meanwhile Rohit Sharma is relaxed and determined about India’s chances in the World Cup and squad composition.
He was quoted, “There is still about two-and-a-half months left for the T20 World Cup. Before that, we have the Asia Cup and two home series against Australia and South Africa.

So, more or less 80-90 percent of your team is set, of course there could be three-four changes if at all depending on the conditions.”

He further added that only the conditions in Australia will change, and that’s it. Due to the bouncy wickets, India will need to play with a lot of pace. Mohammed Shami, who was dropped from T20s after the T20 World Cup in 2021, might make a comeback then.

He said, “As of now, we have been playing in India and will play in UAE, so the conditions in Australia will be different. We need to check what suits our team in Australia.”
