Things will start to become extremely serious for the top cricket teams in less than two weeks. The T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022 is quickly approaching, and teams have begun traveling there for major competitions. One of the first teams to arrive in Australia was the Indian cricket squad, captained by Rohit Sharma. Along with a warm-up match against Western Australia, they have been set to play the same opponents on Thursday. The team took a break from their busy schedule to relax with a trip to Rottnest Island before the second warm-up game.
Injury-related setbacks have hampered India’s T20 World Cup preparations. Star pacer Jasprit Bumrah then missed the main event owing to the same issue that sidelined spin all-arounder Ravindra Jadeja in the beginning. Even backup player Deepak Chahar is allegedly unable to compete in the T20 World Cup due to injury. Other pacers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, and Arshdeep Singh will have to shoulder more responsibility in their place.
The following players are in the Indian team for the ICC T20 World Cup: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, and Arshdeep Singh.
