The current Team India squad assembled at the T20 World Cup in Australia is the best ever team, stated former India coach Ravi Shastri. He was in charge of the 2021 T20 World Cup and the boys didn't qualify for the knockout phase then.

Veteran pacer Mohammed Shami has been named as Jasprit Bumrah’s replacement in Team India’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 squad. The same was announced by the BCCI via an official release.

Former India captain and white ball batting great MS Dhoni has named Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar as his cricketing role model. He admitted that that he wanted to play like the Master Blaster, but realized that he couldn’t do so.

Kuldeep Sen and Umran Malik have been ruled out from the ICC T20 World Cup event in Australia due to visa issues. BCCI has replaced the two with Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj.

Mohamed Siraj, Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur will be flying to Australia to join the Indian contingent for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to be played from October 16 to November 13. It is yet to be officially learned which of these players will be joining the main squad.

India bowled out all the ten wickets of South Africa in 27.1 overs and restricted the guest team for a paltry 99 runs in the third and final match of the bilateral ODI series. Wristspinner Kuldeep Yadav grabbed four wickets in 4.1 overs and spared just 18 runs. He was announced Player of the Match. Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj and Shahbaz Ahmed shared 2 wickets each.

Legendary former Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram reckons that veteran Team India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar might struggle in Australia due to his lack of pace. Bhuvneshwar had a tremendous white ball tour of England, where he made life difficult for the hosts, extracting a lot of movement out of the helpful surfaces. However, he has been pedestrian in the last few T20I games.

Suryakumar is in best form and arguably being considered as the finest Twenty20 batter in Team India. Playing Monday against the Western Australia XI he was witnessed smashing astonishing 3 sixes and 3 fours, pocketing 52 runs in 35 balls at the Western Australia Cricket Association Ground in Perth, Australia.

Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has defended the team’s bowlers, who went for plenty of runs in recent T20I matches. The Men in Blue beat Australia as well as South Africa at home in consecutive series by 2-1 margins. However, India’s bowlers were very expensive not just at home, but even in the preceding Asia Cup in the UAE.
