Top 3 Reasons Why India Will Win the ICC T20 World Cup 2022
The 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia was announced by BCCI. Ravindra Jadeja, who recently underwent surgery to repair a knee ailment, would be missed by India. The recent Asia Cup 2022 came to a dismal conclusion for Rohit Sharma and his team as the rivals highlighted the Indian team’s flaws. Fans and pundits do not view India as the tournament favourites due to their concerns over the 2017 World Cup. India, though, is a strong favourite to win their second T20 World Cup. The four reasons the team led by Rohit Sharma can win the international competition will be the main topic of the write-up.
- In-form Virat Kohli
The reality that Virat Kohli returned to the running during the Asia Cup was one of the major advantages for India. The former captain of India scored 276 runs, including his crucial 71st international century against Afghanistan and two half-centuries. In contrast to how it was a few series back, Virat would not be concerned about his position in the team going into the World Cup. He can play freely because he is not under any pressure to score his 71st century. Virat’s ability to steer the innings to a successful conclusion is another major asset for India. He did it in the Asia Cup matchup with Pakistan, and the World Cup is anticipated to be the same.
ICC T20 World Cup 2014: Virat Kohli
According to cricket news, India’s excellent batsman Virat Kohli amassed the most runs during the 2014 ICC T20 World Cup in Bangladesh. Averaging 106.33 runs per game and 129.14 strike rates in six games, Kohli had a stellar performance in the 2014 edition. He scored four half-centuries during the main competition, including fifty-plus totals against Sri Lanka and South Africa in the semi final and championship games, respectively. But in the final, India suffered a sad loss to Sri Lanka.

- Strong Batting Line Up
India is one of those sides that has a depth in the batting line up. Right from the top-class openers like KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma to the power hitters and death over experts like Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik, Indian side seems stable for this upcoming T20 World Cup 2022.
Moreover, the return of Harshal Patel can be a plus point for India. He made his IPL debut in 2012, and during the following seven seasons, he has played in 41 games. Harshal hasn’t quite made enough of an impression to be a regular participant in an IPL game, but he has contributed enough to be included in the squad for the following season. Harshal has a respectable strike rate while taking wickets, but his economy has been a problem. While representing the Delhi franchise in the previous year, he allowed runs at a 9.54 economy. And in the IPL, his average economy is 8.66. For Harshal to join the Delhi franchise on a consistent basis, he must labour at an economy rate.
India’s Track Record at Australia in T20Is
In T20Is, The Men in Blue have a strong track record on Australian fields. In the T20I series in Australia in the years 2020–21 and 2015–2016, India defeated the Kangaroos. They also chose Australia to host the 2018–2019 T20I series. The team would have a significant lift in morale as Rohit and Virat, who are familiar with the circumstances, will try to go all out.
- A Perfect Blend of Youth and Experience
The Indian squad built a strong bench depth throughout the Rahul Dravid era, which is one accomplishment. For any team, a transition is the most difficult stage. Australia and other nations also had a rough time when their team transitioned. Arshdeep Singh and Ravi Bishnoi are fresh faces on the current Indian team. Players over 35 like Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma are there at the same time to create the ideal blend in the team. It must be highlighted that young talents who are fresh to the international system would only benefit from such high-pressure matches, despite the fact that many could argue that this combination of players cost India the Asia Cup. After a disastrous Asia Cup, Arshdeep would be better prepared for the World Cup.
Most Runs In T20 WC By An Indian Player
Rohit Sharma has scored the majority of runs in the T20 World Cups. Since the first World Cup season, he has consistently represented India. One of the key players on the men in blue’s squad, he has played in 33 games and scored 800 runs.
He keeps his strike rate at 131.52 across all of his playing formats. He has always been on fire during the T20 World Cup, hitting eight fifty-plus scores.
The most of any batter in the World Cup, though, is Babar Azam’s four times over the mark.
Here is the squad for the forthcoming World Cup
Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Mohd Siraj, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh.
Standby players – Mohammed Shami, Shreyas Iyer, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Chahar.
