Three players who deserve to be named in the T20I World Cup squad!

With exactly four months to the onset of the next T20I world cup, India needs to put in a lot of laborious effort in selecting the team, planning, and execution.

Almost a month ahead of the ending of the exhilarating Indian Premier League, the Indian National Team seems to be toiling to find the correct combinations for the playing XI. With the senior-most players taking a rest to manage their workloads, it was on our young guns to fight against the mighty Proteas, and now with the Ireland team to cross the line and take the team to the course of victory which has led us to have 6 designated T20I captains since July 21. The recent INDvSA is poised on 2–2, let’s take a look at how India performed in the last T20I World cup held in the UAE.

With our openers stooping for low scores in the first two matches, India made a heartbreaking group-stage exit and the hopes for adding one more feather to our achievements’ cap were shattered. Our biggest loophole which posed a major problem was the team selection and the selectors & the BCCI realized their mistake very soon. With the baton of head coach now being passed to the stalwart Rahul Dravid and that of captain to Rohit Sharma, viewers and enthusiasts of cricket will now be keeping a keen eye on what could possibly be our squad for the upcoming world cup. With almost everyone having their own, distinct playing XI, I would rather like to name three players who are more deserving than anyone else and have been waiting and justifying again and again why should be given their international caps now.

3 players who should be a part of the T20I World Cup squad in 2022

    1. The first name which comes to mind when I speak about players who are deserving to get a call-up is none other than, Sanju Samson. This guy has proved his worth innumerable times in the T20 league and the rare chances he has gotten for India.  Samson holds various records in the Indian T20I league namely most runs in middle overs Since 2020, most runs among non-openers(Indians) since 2020, and most runs at no. 3 since 2020 and is only second to Jos Buttler in best strike rates against spin since 2020. Having a strike rate of 135.71, he has 3 IPL hundreds and 17 50s to his name. Not only batting but his wicket-keeping and fielding skills are also less talked about. An electric guy around the field, Sanju possesses immense talent and intent whenever he walks in to bat for his team. Hoping this time around, he gets the chance he deserves and represents his country in the shortest format WC.
    2. The second name which I am really excited about is our very own, young Arshdeep Singh. Yes, he hasn’t played a single game for India yet but again, what an amazing talent. Being a left-arm pacer and bowling exceptionally well in the IPL in recent years, Arshdeep stands a great chance to make it to the WC squad.
