In the player face-offs for the T20 World Cup, Ponting makes his selections

Jasprit Bumrah v Shaheen Afridi? Babar Azam v Jos Buttler? Hardik Pandya v Glenn Maxwell? Wanindu Hasaranga v Rashid Khan? Dinesh Karthik v Rishabh Pant?

On the most recent episode of The ICC Review, Australia icon Ricky Ponting had a little fun by making some bold predictions and choosing who he would pick in some of the most challenging head-to-head matches between some of the biggest names in T20I cricket.

As a prominent coach and recognized commentator, Ponting follows T20 cricket more than anybody else in the world, keeping a close eye on some of the game’s most gifted players.

People are beginning to speculate which player would perform best in a specific role in T20 cricket as the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia approaches quickly.

Ponting was given the terrible duty of picking just one player out of two in the player face-offs, according to host Sanjana Ganesan of The ICC Review.

Here are Ponting’s picks, which include both starting batsmen and cunning spinners.

1.  Jasprit Bumrah v Shaheen Afridi

Jasprit Bumrah and Shaheen Afridi, two of the best fast bowlers in the world, both have an impressive track record in the shortest format. Afridi has taken 47 wickets in 40 games, compared to Bumrah’s 69 in 58 games.

With the new ball and in the final few overs, the two pacers are just as effective. Ponting acknowledged that it was difficult to choose just one, saying: “Look, how do you split those two guys? In recent years, across all game types, they have been two of the top bowlers in the world.

Ponting ultimately decided on Bumrah since he was a seasoned politician.

“I’ll probably go on experience alone – I’ll go for Bumrah. He’s played a fair bit of cricket in Australia now, played more in Australia than Afridi and has played more big tournaments as well than Afridi has.”

2.  Babar Azam v Jos Buttler

Next, Ponting was asked to choose between two of the world’s most reliable opening batters. Buttler and Babar both take the initiative, and their track records speak for themselves.

While Buttler has scored 1,562 runs in 94 games, Babar has scored 2,138 runs in 80 games.

Both players are on Ponting’s list of the top five T20 players, and the former Australia captain had nothing but positive things to say about them.

Buttler beat Babar, who strikes at a rate of 128.81, thanks to his 142.57 international strike rate.

“Babar Azam, he is technically a better player than Buttler. You look at their strike rates though and there is no comparison there, Buttler is much more dynamic, sort of a more 360-degree player than Babar is,” Ponting noted.

Buttler’s experience in Australia also worked in his favour.

“Buttler has also played more cricket in Australia with England and he has spent some time in the Big Bash with Sydney Thunder. So I’m going to go Jos Buttler on this one,” Ponting added.

3.  Hardik Pandya v Glenn Maxwell

Ponting struggled to make a choice in the clash of the powerful all-rounders and decided on a draw. The Australian veteran supported his countryman to prove more lethal with the bat even though he thought Pandya would make more of an impact with the ball in Australia.

Praising Hardik, Ponting said: “Hardik’s last few months, in particular, have probably been the best of his career. Looking at the way they stack up, I think Hardik will probably have more of a chance to have an impact with the ball and also more of a chance to have an impact with the bat.”

But Ponting was also effusive in his praise for Maxwell, adding: “Maxwell’s been batting quite low in T20 cricket. But that being said, in Australia, I think Maxwell will end up scoring more runs than Hardik. And I think Hardik will take more wickets than Maxwell. So, I’m going to call that one a draw.”

4. Wanindu Hasaranga v Rashid Khan

Wanindu Hasaranga v Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan has a longstanding reputation as one of T20 cricket’s top spinners. Wanindu Hasaranga has also experienced a notable surge recently, topping the wicket-taking charts at the T20 World Cup 2021 in the United Arab Emirates and then building on it with the performances that earned him Player of the Tournament honours at the Asia Cup.

Despite Hasaranga’s recent performances, Ponting still backed Rashid over the Sri Lankan star due to his experiences in the Big Bash League. Claiming that conditions in Australia won’t support either of the spinners, Ponting said: “Hasaranga has obviously been white-hot of late and conditions here are not going to suit either of these two guys.

“Rashid Khan’s played 5-6 years now in the BBL with Adelaide Strikers, been the No.1 ranked T20 bowler in the world for a long time now so Rashid Khan just pips Hasaranga.”

5. Dinesh Karthik v Rishabh Pant

Dinesh Karthik v Rishabh Pant

Who should be the designated wicketkeeper-batter in the team has long been a source of contention in Indian cricket circles. Karthik can brag about being a great finisher, but Pant has enormous skill and is supported by many.

Ponting thinks that Rohit Sharma’s squad should move on in this manner because India has occasionally selected both players on the same side.

Praising both, Ponting said: “I actually think that India’s best team has both of these players. I don’t care if they are both keepers but I think their batting prowess is enough.”

Elaborating on their abilities, the Australian legend added: “Rishabh in the middle order and Dinesh as a finisher, they look extremely dangerous to me.”

Ultimately though, Ponting believed that Pant had an edge over Karthik as he is likely to be afforded more chances.

“Look, I’m just going to favour Rishabh because I think he might get slightly more opportunities than Dinesh does,” he concluded.

Men’s T20I Player Rankings: Babar drops to No. 1 Batter

After his outstanding achievements in the Asia Cup, a new batter has reached the top of the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Player Rankings for T20 Internationals.

Mohammad Rizwan has replaced Babar Azam as the No. 1 T20I hitter in the world, moving up the rankings. In the Asia Cup, Rizwan has been in outstanding form, topping the run charts with 192 runs in 3 games.

In their back-to-back victories over India and Hong Kong, Rizwan was Pakistan’s mainstay at the plate, scoring 78* and 71 respectively. Due to his performances, he has moved up one rank in the standings, passing Babar, who has had a difficult competition thus far.

After Babar and Misbah-ul-Haq, Rizwan is the third Pakistani batsman to hold the top spot in the T20I rankings. Throughout his career, Babar has spent 1155 days at the top of the T20I batting charts (as of 7 September). Mohammad Rizwan tweeted in response to being ranked as the top T20I batter, “Count this as the 1156th day of Captain Babar Azam’s reign. He and I are not different. The King stays the King. We are all one.”

He also thanked the fans for all the support and good wishes.

Other significant changes in the batting order include Pathum Nissanka moving up one slot to No. 8 following his outstanding performance in the Asia Cup. In his last three games, Nissanka has scored 20, 35, and 52 points, with his most recent effort helping Sri Lanka defeat India in a Super Four match.

One of the biggest movers is Afghanistan batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who rose fourteen spots to No. 15 thanks to his 84 against Sri Lanka in the Super Four match. Rohit Sharma, the Indian captain, climbs four spots to No. 13 following his 72 against Sri Lanka.

Following their outstanding performances, the spinners from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan have risen the highest in the bowling rankings. With Akeal Hosein, Mujeeb Ur Rahman is now tied for sixth place after moving up three spots thanks to his 2/30.

Maheesh Theekshana has been extremely well-rewarded for being at his most frugal throughout the Asia Cup, posting statistics of 1/23, 1/29, and 1/29 in the last three games. He climbs five positions to No. 8 and into the top ten. Shadab Khan also goes up one spot to No.14 following 4/8 and 2/31 against Hong Kong and India respectively.

David Warner has gained one spot, moving up to No.6 in the batting rankings, mostly on the back of his 94 against Zimbabwe in the third ODI.

In the bowling rankings, Mitchell Starc jumps three spots to No.12 after picking up five wickets in his last three ODIs.

Glenn Maxwell climbs one spot to No. 9 in the all-rounders’ rankings after recording 4/52 in Australia’s thrilling first ODI victory over New Zealand.

England recall opener for T20 World Cup

After not playing for England since March 2019, Alex Hales returns to the team’s international lineup. In place of Jonathan Bairstow, who was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to a left ankle injury received last week, Alex Hales makes his long-awaited comeback to international cricket. The team that will tour Pakistan for a seven-match T20I series before the T20 World Cup now includes the dynamic opener.

Alex Hales
Alex Hales

Rob Key, the managing director of England’s men’s cricket team, stated that Hales’ name was considered for the World Cup but that Bairstow was ultimately chosen to partner with Jos Buttler at the top.

T20 World Cup 2022 fans from all over the world can book T20 World Cup tickets from our online platform Cricket fans can book the England Vs New Zealand Tickets on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

“Alex Hales was mentioned when we spoke about who the best opening partner for Jos was,” said Key.

“His name was mentioned a lot but we felt Jonny Bairstow was the man to do that in the World Cup. I’ve said on a number of occasions that I feel Alex Hales has served his time for his misdemeanours. Now it’s on form, selection and whether we feel they are the best person to go out there.”

Hales’ comeback to international play has been made possible by Bairstow’s injury as well as England’s firing of Jason Roy due to his poor play.

Hales, 33, was allegedly on the verge of being recalled for the original squads as the selection committee thought about alternatives to Jason Roy, who had been benched after a protracted stretch of subpar play. The chance occurred once more as a result of the unusual injury suffered by Bairstow last week, who has been sidelined for a number of months after breaking his leg while slipping on a golf course.

The decision to recall Hales was made after the team’s management had clearly changed its stance toward him, especially in the wake of Eoin Morgan’s retirement. After learning that Hales had failed two tests for recreational drugs prior to the 2019 World Cup, the former England captain vehemently opposed his return, accusing him of demonstrating “total contempt” for the squad’s ideals and causing “a lack of trust between Alex and the team.”

Hales also took part in the Bristol nightclub incident in September 2017 that resulted in Ben Stokes’ arrest and subsequent trial, and he made headlines once more last year when Azeem Rafiq alleged during the DCMS hearings that Hales had given his black Labrador the name “Kevin” in recognition of a racial slur. Hales had refuted the assertion.

On the field, though, Hales’ performance has long been deserving of another chance at the international level. With 259 runs at a strike rate of 152.35, including a ground-breaking opening combination with Dawid Malan, he was a standout player for Trent Rockets, last week’s men’s Hundred champions, and during the competition, he became the first England player to reach 10,000 runs in the T20 format.

A large portion of their runs were scored in foreign franchise leagues, like as the Big Bash, where he has played 45 matches for Sydney Thunder since 2019 and amassed 11 half-centuries and 100 runs. That experience was crucial in getting Hales called up because the World Cup will be contested in Australia in October and November. And Hales, who has been a regular in the PSL since 2018, brings with him a wealth of knowledge of the conditions there as England returns to Pakistan for their first international visit since 2005.

Alex Hales
Alex Hales

He has participated in 60 T20Is overall since his 2011 debut, averaging 31.01 with a strike rate of 136.65. He scored the first T20I century by an English player in 2014 in the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh when he smashed a match-winning 116 not out from 64 balls against Sri Lanka in Chattogram.

Following the initial squad announcement last week, ECB managing director Rob Key revealed that Hales had called him to inquire as to why he had been left off the team. At the time, England had preferred Bairstow to replace Roy at the top of the order, and Lancashire’s Phil Salt was also included in the 15-man group. Key acknowledged that Hales had “done his time” and that any future decisions about him would only be based on his aptitude and physical appearance.

Squad for T20 World Cup: Jos Buttler (captain), Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

Squad for Pakistan T20Is: Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Jordan Cox, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Liam Dawson, Richard Gleeson, Alex Hales. Tom Helm, Will Jacks, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Olly Stone, Reece Topley, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Luke Wood, Mark Wood.

Hales has participated in a number of T20 leagues throughout the world while absent from the international team. The 33-year-old has particularly excelled in Australia’s Big Bash League, scoring 1857 runs in 60 games at an average of 33.16 and a strike rate of 151.34. Hales’ knowledge with Australian playing conditions may offer England’s batting a competitive advantage at the T20 World Cup.

We take a look at all the 16 squads for this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

The top five T20I players according to Ponting

ICC Hall of Famer Ricky Ponting has chosen the five players he would select first if given the task of choosing a World T20I team.

Boasting a legendary record in white-ball cricket of his own, Ponting was also skipper of Australia for the first-ever men’s T20I, making 98* (55) in a match-winning performance.

Now spending a lot of his time in coaching dugouts and commentary boxes, Ponting watches as much T20 cricket as anyone and uses both roles to keep close tabs on the world’s best.

Speaking on the latest episode of The ICC Review, Ponting was asked to select the first five players he would choose for a World T20I team – and perhaps to the shock of some there is no Australian players in his quintet.

Rashid Khan (Afghanistan) – ICC T20I Bowling Ranking: 3

Rashid Khan

“Five players is relatively easy, but trying to put them in order from one to five makes it a little bit more difficult,” Ponting begins.

“I’ve actually gone with Rashid Khan at number one, and the reason I thought about that was if we actually had a player event in an IPL auction now and there was no salary cap, he’s probably the one that’s going to go for the most amount of money.” “I’ve got him at number one for his consistency, his wicket-taking ability over a long period of time, but also the fact that his economy rate in the T20 game is just outstanding.

“When you’re playing against any team that he’s playing in you probably have less sleep that night than you do for any other game that you play during the year.”

Babar Azam (Pakistan) – ICC T20I Batting Ranking: 1

BaBar Azam
BaBar Azam

“Babar Azam I’ll go for at number two, simply because the number one ranked batter in the T20 game for quite a while now and deservedly so.”

“His record speaks for itself. He’s pretty much led the way for that Pakistan team for the last couple of years”

Hardik Pandya (India) – ICC T20I All-Rounder Ranking: 5

Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya

“On current form, it’s pretty hard to go past Hardik Pandya at number three”

“His IPL was outstanding. To see him back at the bowling crease is something that I was always a little bit unsure would actually ever happen … he’s had some really big injury setbacks, which has obviously affected how much he’s been able to play for India.

“But he’s back bowling, and at 140kph which he was doing four or five years ago. But his batting and his maturity while batting has come on in leaps and bounds.

“He understands the game better and he understands his game better than ever before and right now he’s probably the best allrounder in the world in T20 cricket, and could potentially be in ODI cricket.”

Jos Buttler – ICC T20I Batting Ranking: 16

Jos Buttler
Jos Buttler

“I had to pick Jos Buttler in there actually.”

“When you’re coaching against him, you just know that he’s got something that a lot of other players don’t have; the ability to take the game away in a short period of time opening the batting – which he will do for England this tournament.

“He was one of the people who’s an out-and-out match winner as we saw with last year’s IPL, making three or four hundreds, which was quite remarkable.

“His batting went to another level in the last year or so.”

Jasprit Bumrah – ICC T20I Bowling Ranking: 37

Jasprit Bumrah
Jasprit Bumrah

“Jasprit Bumrah in at number five.”

“He is probably the most complete bowler across Test cricket, One Day cricket and T20 cricket in the world right now. Very good with the new ball when anyone decides to use him that way.

“India might think of giving him an over with the new ball in Australia (at the T20 World Cup) where it might swing but what you can guarantee is a couple of great high quality death overs, which every team is looking for – someone that can execute slow balls and bouncers.”

Tim David is chosen by Australia for the T20 World Cup

The lone addition to the team that won the Twenty20 World Cup last year was the Singapore-born hitting prodigy Tim David, who was called up by Australia on Thursday. Mitchell Swepson, a leg-spinner, loses out to David’s astounding promotion because the 26-year-old earned it after a string of noteworthy individual performances in domestic cricket.

“Tim continues to establish himself with some quality performances in leagues around the world, earning a place in the squad,” said chairman of selectors George Bailey of the giant Western Australia-raised middle-order hitter.

Tim David
Tim David

“He is a highly gifted, natural ball striker who will add extra batting depth to the group which has had a lot of success in T20 cricket. “We expect him to play a similar role to that he has been playing in the past few years.”

David, a right-hander, played 14 T20 matches for Singapore but is qualified to change teams because his parents are Australians.

A finishing batsman in international tournaments like the Indian Premier League and Australia’s Big Bash League, he shot to fame in the Pakistan Super League last season.

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting is a big fan

“He’s the sort of player that could actually win you a Wo­rld Cup,” Ponting said recently of David, who was signed by the Mumbai Indi­ans at the 2022 IPL auction.

“I know there are some other great world-quality players in the middle order for Australia, but probably none of them boasts the resume as good as Tim’s over the last two years.”

David will be more useful in Australian batting conditions whilst Swepson was crucial in the previous World Cup on the spinny pitches in the United Arab Emirates, helping Australia to their first title in an eight-wicket win over New Zealand in the final.

“We still really like Swepo’s skill set but it’s a different strategy,” explained skipper Aaron Finch on why he was axed. “The UAE World Cup last year was on the back of the IPL being played there and it was end-of-season wickets, tired wickets, we were expecting that spin would play a big part. Here we are very happy with the three spinners we have in the squad — Zamps, Agar and Maxi cover us really well.”

Pat Cummins, the test captain, rejoins the 15-man roster after missing the current ODI series against Zimbabwe and the one against New Zealand the following week. Adam Zampa, who missed those matches because of the birth of his baby, is also back in the mix.

The World Cup team will visit India in September for three T20 Internationals before returning to play the West Indies and England at home prior to the World Cup.

As part of a “controlled period of preparation,” key batsman David Warner will skip the Indian tour, according to Cricket Australia, while Cameron Green will join the team for the Indian T20 Series.

The World Cup begins on October 16 and will be played at seven Australian sites, with Australia’s opening match versus New Zealand taking place in Sydney on October 22.

Squad: Aaron Finch (captain), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Tim David, Josh Inglis, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Kane Richardson.

India vs Australia 2022: Strongest Predicted T20 Series Squad for Team India

As we have a look at the strongest expected players list for Team India for the 2022 T20 series vs. Australia, we can expect Team India to announce a full-strength roster.

Before the biggest event of the year, the T20 World Cup 2022, Team India will start two of the most crucial series at the completion of the Asia Cup 2022. One is the Twenty20 matchup with Australia. The ODI and T20 series against South Africa is the other. Both home series will serve as excellent T20 World Cup warm-ups.

At Mohali, the Australia T20 series gets underway on September 20 and runs through September 25. While the South Africa series starts on September 28 with the T20 Series and ends on October 11 with the ODI Series. Between the Asia Cup 2022 and the Australia T20 series, there is enough time for players to recover.

This year’s Asia Cup will use a T20 format. After that, India will play two three-match T20I series against South Africa and Australia. What lineup would India choose for the next Australia series given that they have named a formal 15-person squad for the Asia Cup along with three standbys? That is, after all, the most crucial question that requires an answer.

India vs Australia
India vs Australia

So, in this post, we examine Team India’s strongest probable lineup for the T20 Series against Australia in 2022. We’ll also take a look at Australia’s official roster for the T20 World Cup in 2022 and the T20 series against India. So let’s get started now.

Confirmed Players

If we are talking about Indian athletes, Rohit Sharma, the captain and vice-captain, and KL Rahul are among those who have been confirmed to play in the Australia Series (unless, of course, they are rested). Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are batsmen. Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are wicketkeepers. bowlers Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, and Ravi Bishnoi.

Speaking of all-rounders, Ravichandran Ashwin and Deepak Hooda should most likely be given a chance for the Australia series as well. There will be debate about whether or not to rest our two most important all-rounders, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja. In a perfect world, they would participate since facing up against a champion squad like Australia will serve as a fantastic warm-up for the T20 World Cup in 2022.

There won’t be any limits for India’s home series against Australia, unlike the Asia Cup 2022 where they had to name only 15 official players. As a result, India should pick at least 18 players for the Australia T20 series. India should therefore include Deepak Chahar, Shreyas Iyer, and Axar Patel in the official 18-player roster in addition to the players stated above.

Harshal and Jasprit Bumrah to Play?

The main uncertainty for Team India is whether Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah will be able to participate in the T20 Series against Australia. Well, both were a member of the NCA, Bengaluru, rehabilitation program. Although the exact condition of their rehabilitation is still unknown, India would not risk playing them given the series’ lack of significance because a healthy tandem is required for the T20 World Cup.

Will Avesh Khan get Another Chance?

Prior to the squad selection, Team India would have to address this issue. India has relied on Avesh Khan to fill in as the team’s third pacer while Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah are out injured. His performance in T20Is has sadly been dismal thus far. Avesh will need to perform well in the remaining matches of the Asia Cup 2022 if India wants to give him another chance. In the event that he does not, India may consider trying Mohammed Shami, Umran Malik, or Shardul Thakur.

Steve Smith wants a significant role in the T20 World Cup

Should he be employed in the hosts’ championship defense, Australia’s Steve Smith believes he can contribute more to this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup campaign.

Smith struggled to find a place in Australia’s T20I team in recent years, frequently being used to rebuild an innings after a shaky start. He scored just 69 runs over four innings in the previous season.

The 33-year-old feels he can be a significant asset in national colours despite worries that his game is not suited to the shortest format, as evidenced by a knock of 37* (27) that helped the team to a series victory against Sri Lanka in June.

“I feel like when I’m playing good T20 cricket, I’m in that team for sure,” Smith told reporters on Tuesday.

“I think the role that I’ve been given in the last couple of years is the Mr Fix-it sort of role, and that tag’s been taken away from me now (since) the Sri Lanka tour.”

Smith has played several quick strikes in Australian colours despite not being recognized for his strength with the bat; all four of his half-centuries in T20Is came at a strike rate of more than 140.

Smith believes he can complement players like Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, and others around by increasing the run rate in the middle order, either by producing alarming totals or by pursuing targets in front of the home crowd.

“I felt like I could go out and just play with a lot more freedom naturally (in Sri Lanka) and not have any kind of hesitation in the back of my mind like I need to be a bit more reserved or anything.”

“I can just take the game on and if I want to smack someone for six first ball, then I’m able to do that freely. When I’m playing my best, I play freely. I watch the ball and hit the gaps and just look to use the middle of my bat as much as possible.”

Meanwhile, Mitchell Marsh’s ankle injury has dealt Australia’s tournament preparations a small setback.

The Australians are planning to take the all-rounder to India in late September, with a three-match T20I series being the best preparation for their championship defense. The all-rounder is expected to miss ODI Super League matches against Zimbabwe and New Zealand.

Smith and Marsh are competitors for the No. 3 place, but Smith noted that his teammate will be crucial to the home campaign.

“It’s not ideal for Mitch. He’s been playing some really good white-ball cricket recently.”

“He was a big part of our T20 World Cup campaign last year and I’m sure there are big plans for him this year, so I think the priority is to get him right for that.”

Australia’s T20 World Cup defense begins on 22 October, when they take on New Zealand in a re-match of 2021 final in Sydney.

Mitchell Marsh was ruled out of ODIs with priority given to T20 World Cup

Despite “minimal ankle pain,” the all-around player will be able to participate in the next India tour.

Due to a minor ankle injury, Mitchell Marsh will not be able to play in the upcoming ODIs against Zimbabwe and New Zealand. However, he will be eligible to play in the T20 tour of India beginning in January ahead of the World Cup in Australia.

Josh Inglis, a wicketkeeper-batter from Western Australia who played for London Spirit in the Hundred and took Glenn Maxwell’s place, has been called up as a replacement.

Marsh’s issue was defined as “mild ankle pain,” and because the T20 World Cup, where Marsh will be a crucial member of the team at No. 3, is just around the corner, precaution is being exercised. In the first ODI, he was the first-change bowler and recorded 1 for 22 before going down for 2 during the run chase.

“It’s not ideal for Mitch,” Steven Smith said. “He’s been playing some really good white-ball cricket recently and the way we set up our team the other day with bulk all-rounders; he was a big part of that. Disappointing for Mitch but there’s some pretty important stuff coming up, he was a big part of the T20 World Cup campaign last year and sure there are big plans for him this year so the priority is to get him right for that.”

Marsh’s absence may alter the balance of Australia’s side for the second match in Townsville, although Sean Abbott and Ashton Agar are both parts of the squad if they want to retain the all-rounder-heavy route which has seen Cameron Green at No. 8, he may now get the chance higher up the order.

Smith described the pitch for the opening match as “pretty challenging” with spin and seam on offer but was pleased with his first outing of the season.

“The ball was seaming around a fair bit, there was a bit bounce and the spin was pretty hard to line up as well,” he said. “Some were going straight and some were taking off and bouncing so it wasn’t easy, but good to spend time out there and sure it will serve me well.”

As Australia prepares for the World Cup next year, Smith has been firmly established at No. 3 in the ODI squad and stated that it was “definitely” where he liked to bat. He continued, “That’s where my record is strongest.

Australia’s optional training session on Tuesday was hampered by rain, but the weather was expected to clear up for the game.

For the 50 Days-To-Go celebrations, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup takes to the sky around Australia

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which will feature 16 teams from 16 October to 13 November, is fewer than 50 days away. The T20 World Cup took to the air today in Perth and Sydney as supporter’s countdown to “The Big Time,” travelling from one side of the nation to the other.

Usman Khawaja, an Australian cricketer, was at Sydney Harbour in Sydney when the flags of all 16 competing teams were flown over the city and its internationally renowned attractions, the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Trophy Tour made its way to Perth, Western Australia, with Shane Watson delivering the trophy to the city’s supporters via helicopter from the famous tourist attraction, Rottnest Island. Fan groups from all six of the clubs that will play in the five matches in Perth marched to the stadium to get a live look at the coveted awards.

In Geelong, where the 2014 champions Sri Lanka and Namibia will play in the T20 World Cup’s opening game on October 16, a countdown clock and painting were also presented. After the T20 World Cup is over, the mural, which was painted by a local Sri Lankan artist, will continue to be shown at Kardinia Park Stadium.

Additional standing room tickets for the eagerly anticipated India vs. Pakistan game at the MCG on Sunday, October 23, were already sold out earlier this week.

Children’s tickets to all Super 12 matches are available for just $5, while adult tickets begin at $20, and it’s expected that over 800,000 spectators will attend the T20 World Cup.

Australian cricketer and ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Multicultural Ambassador Usman Khawaja said;  “The T20 World Cup is a massive global event and the fact that 16 teams will all be playing across Australia at the same time is very special. What I’m excited to see as being a part of the T20 Champions program is the fans of all the different teams coming to the stadiums to celebrate their heritage and passion for cricket.”

“While Australia is the hosts of the event, this will be a home World Cup for people of all different backgrounds no matter where they are from. We’ve seen tickets sell out for the India and Pakistan match with over 80% of those fans living here in Australia. This shows how big the opportunity is for cricket to engage fans of all different backgrounds to be part of the Australian Cricket family.”

ICC Head of Events, Chris Tetley said: “There is a real sense of excitement and anticipation now we are just 50 days away from the start of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. Today’s activities across Australia to celebrate the milestone highlight this is an event not to be missed. With all 16 teams confirmed and the finishing touches to event preparation being undertaken, I can’t wait for the cricket to start and to see who will claim the ultimate prize in T20 cricket.

There are still some tickets available for certain match days so anyone that wants to witness the world’s best T20 cricketers in a World Cup should check the ICC website to make sure they don’t miss out.”

ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Local Organizing Committee CEO Michelle Enright said: “With only 50 days to go until the T20 World Cup, our message is that this is a World Cup for everyone. It will be an unfishable celebration of cricket and the many different cultures that make up its extraordinary global fanbase.

“World Cups have an unrivalled ability to unite the country and to inspire the next generation.  With kid’s tickets to all Super 12 matches at just $5, we hope as many families as possible can come and see the world’s best cricketers and share in the joy of the live sport.”

Top 3 players that have a chance to hit the most runs at the T20 World Cup in 2022

Experts, commentators, and cricket fans from around the world are always debating the T20 World Cup. We have all always enjoyed watching the competition where teams play in the quickest possible game type.

T20I games have offered the fans some incredible on-field experiences over the years. Top-tier teams have made outstanding plays at vital times and altered the course of the game in the space of a few overs or even a few balls.

The teams’ batting lineups have frequently saved the day and assisted in crushing the opponent with some spectacular huge smashes. In order to overcome these challenges and win a game, a team’s management looks to its batters.

This is the reason that each team that will compete in the forthcoming T20 World Cup wants to maximise the strength of its batting unit in order to dominate the majority of the matches. It’s time to take a look at the top three batsmen who could finish this T20 World Cup 2022 with the most runs scored.

3. Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, is ranked third. The individual who was just named the Indian team’s captain across all three forms will also play a significant role in the nation’s batting order for the forthcoming T20 World Cup. So far this year, the right-hander has 290 runs in 13 T20I innings. His 140 strike rate while batting is excellent.

Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma

The rest of his teammates, as well as the management in especially, will be greatly relieved by the fact that he has more frequently given India quick starts in the most of the matches. The T20 World Cup is a huge event, and The Hitman will undoubtedly try to keep up his strong play there as well.

2. Nicholas Pooran

The second-place finisher on this list is West Indies Skipper. One of his team’s most reliable run scorers recently, Nicholas Pooran has established himself as the linchpin of the West Indies batting order.

Under difficult conditions, the left-hander has consistently been able to counter the opposition’s bowlers and stabilize the innings with fantastic smashes. With a respectable strike rate of 135.7, Pooran has 553 runs in 17 T20I innings for West Indies thus far in 2022.

Nicholas Pooran
Nicholas Pooran

He has scored five half century, the most by any player in T20Is this year to date, which speaks much about his excellent present form. He will undoubtedly be a key member of the West Indies team and has a potential to lead all scorers in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

1. Babar Azam

Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, is at the top of this list. In recent years, in all formats, Babar has been among the most impressive and dominant batsmen in the world. However, he has played a bigger part for his team for the most part in white ball cricket.

In his lone T20I match against Australia so far this year, the 28-year-old has amassed an amazing half-century. However, his efforts in 2021, when he scored more than 550 runs in 23 T20I innings, were crystal obvious evidence that he was in excellent form for T20Is.

Babar Azam

Babar will undoubtedly try to maintain his excellent batting form in the forthcoming major ICC tournament, the T20 world cup as well. He will undoubtedly be the player to watch out for in this year’s event and may end up scoring the most runs overall.

Suryakumar Yadav is chosen by Ponting for a crucial batting spot in India’s T20I team

Ricky Ponting, a former captain of Australia, believes that Suryakumar Yadav should bat at No. 4 for India in T20Is and has compared the rising star to AB de Villiers of South Africa.

When Yadav pulled a Jofra Archer short ball intended at his head for six with a quick swivel on his first international cricket ball, it was as good a sign as any of his skill and arrogance.

Still, longevity is the best sign of a really world-class player, just like with any innate skill. And to begin his tenure in the Indian shirt on a high note, Yadav built on his auspicious start with astounding performances over the course of the following year and a half.

Ricky Ponting
Ricky Ponting

After 23 T20I matches, Yadav is now ranked No. 2 in the MRF Tyres ICC T20 Batter Rankings, behind Pakistan captain Babar Azam. Yadav has the highest strike rate of any player to bat as frequently as he has in T20I history, at 175.45. To know more about India T20 World Cup Tickets click here.

There is no certainty that anyone will make the starting XI, though, with the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup taking place in two months and India’s batting lineup filled with amazing ability. But Yadav has supporters.
Ponting believes Yadav should be included in India’s starting XI for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup later this year since he has seen Yadav up close in his early years in Mumbai during the IPL.

“He’s a very, very exciting player and I’m sure someone that’s going to find himself in their team, not just their squad,” Ponting said on the latest episode of The ICC Review.

“I think you’d find him in their team for the T20 World Cup. And if he’s in that team, then I think all the fans in Australia are going to see a very, very good player.

“He’s quite a confident person. He backs himself and he’s never going to step down from a challenge or any situation that arises in a game. I feel he thinks he can win that situation and therefore go on and win the game for his team.”

Yadav exudes confidence every time he steps up to the plate. In Nottingham recently, India appeared to be in trouble after cashing in 216 at 31/3, but the situation swiftly changed as Yadav began to attack.

Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav

He went on to score his first T20I century, keeping India in the match the entire time he was playing.

Ponting thinks Yadav stands out from other young stars in the game because of his “self-belief in his own game and his own abilities.”

“Surya (Yadav) scores 360 degrees around the ground, a bit like an AB de Villiers did when he was in his actual prime. The lap shots, the late cuts, you know, the ramps over the keeper’s head. He can hit down the ground,” Ponting said.

“He hits really well over the leg side, flicks to deep backward square particularly well, and he’s a good player of fast bowling and is a good player of spin bowling.”

Multi-skilled T20 batters are in high demand and his skills make Yadav an enticing option in the XI for India with the tournament in Australia looming large.

Asked whether Yadav would make India’s best XI, Ponting was adamant that “he played better than anybody else in the Indian team for the last couple of series” and felt he should be slotted into the top order.

“It’s got to be in the top four, I think. I said stick with him (Virat) in his traditional spot, which has been number three,” Ponting said.

“For Surya, it’s one, two or four. I think he can open, but I think he’s probably, you know, if you could probably just keep him away from the new ball, let him control the middle part of the game outside the Powerplay, through in the middle, and if he’s in at the end, you know what can happen.”

What can happen, from the relatively small sample size so far, is mind-blowing. Yadav’s already impressive strike rate shoots up to 258.82 in the death overs in T20Is – in 34 balls he has smashed 88 runs with 15 of those deliveries going for boundaries.

“I think in the top four is, well, actually I’ll go out on a limb: I don’t want him to open. I think number four is his best spot,” Ponting declared.

Whether it is at No.4 or not will remain a talking point until the event in Australia, but there’s very little argument against Yadav having an exciting career as a prominent feature of India’s teams.

Due to a back injury, Jasprit Bumrah is most likely going to miss the ICC T20 World Cup in 2022

Due to his back ailment, India’s pace wonder Jasprit Bumrah is probably going to miss the 2022 T20 World Cup. The English batsmen were scared by Jasprit Bumrah’s sheer velocity and swing during the ODI series against England. But he was unable to participate in the last match of that series. His back ailment appears to be quite significant, and it is unlikely that he will recover in time to play in the Australia-hosted ICC T20 World Cup in 2022. Here is a detailed look:

Jasprit Bumrah rarely gets injured because the BCCI carefully controls his workload and ensures that he gets enough rest. But the series against England appears to have strained his back. Bumrah, India’s best bowler in three formats was key to the country’s strategy for winning the ICC T20 World Cup.

Jasprit Bumrah
Jasprit Bumrah

Bumrah’s fitness was brought up by a top BCCI official, who responded, “Yes, it is worrying. He is back in rehabilitation, where he will receive the best care possible. His prior injury is the issue, and that is what worries us. He had this injury just two months before the World Cup, which is the worst conceivable timing. We are keeping a tight eye on his health. He needs to be handled with care because he is cricket’s best bowler.

Jasprit Bumrah is a Senior Bowler:

The argument is that Bumrah is an accomplished bowler. Bumrah is the captain of India’s bowling order. He is the center of attention in the bowling lineup. He has significantly raised his level of play over time. Bumrah is the total package for T20. He has an incredible variety of options. His knuckleball is challenging to select, and his wide yorkers, bouncer, and elite wide yorkers are all excellent.

Arshdeep Singh will have to Take Care of Death Bowling:

The task of death bowling will now fall to the youthful phenomenon Arshdeep Singh. Death bowling was primarily the responsibility of Jasprit Bumrah, thus this young man must raise his hand. There wouldn’t be a better chance for him. BCCI should also take Mohammed Shami into account. Prasidh Krishna and Mohammed Shami are the only candidates for the 2023 ODI World Cup, as was previously stated. But the selecting committee must take Shami’s case under consideration again.

In order to prepare for the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, India has selected a potent 15-player roster for the Asia Cup.

After the rotation that was seen during the West Indies tour and the upcoming ODI series against Zimbabwe, the squad represents the return of many major guns to the Indian establishment.

At the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, India will face its bitter foe Pakistan to open their Asia Cup campaign on August 28.

For Rohit Sharma and company, the competition will be of utmost significance since. They will step up their preparation for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia later this year with a nearly full-strength team.

The roster for the competition is anticipated to closely resemble the one selected for the Asia Cup. with the addition of the injured Jasprit Bumrah and barring any last-minute injuries. The picks provide a clear indication of the Indian approach for the marquee event Down Under.

Here, we take a look at the key takeaways from the 15-member squad named by Indian selectors: 

Valuable match practice for Kohli, Rahul

Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, two of India’s primary batsmen, will have a significant opportunity to get crucial experience in the middle during the Asia Cup.

Many people have questioned Kohli’s position in the Indian T20I setup in light of his recent performance, which has generated a lot of criticism. The Asia Cup will put an end to this discussion if the team performs well. With just infrequent appearances since the 2021 T20 World Cup, Kohli has also had little opportunity to practise in T20I matches. Kohli has only participated in four T20Is since the tournament in the UAE and Oman: two at home against the West Indies and two away against England.

Virat Kohli and KL Rahul

KL Rahul, who has been out of action since the IPL, is also making his comeback with the squad. After having a sports hernia operation, the opener was expected to play again in the T20I series against the West Indies. But a positive COVID-19 test put off his return even further.

Two of India’s batting stalwarts will have a fantastic chance to find their stride at the Asia Cup.

Lack of pacers

India has chosen to enter the Asia Cup with just three frontline pacers because speed leader Jasprit Bumrah and T20I specialist Harshal Patel are both out due to injuries.

In the speed unit, new players Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan will support veteran Bhuvneshwar Kumar. In the most recent T20I series, Kumar has rediscovered his mojo, swinging the ball up front and also bowling some key overs at the end.

Everyone has been pleased by Arshdeep’s temperament and his capacity to bowl yorkers at will in the closing overs. Although Khan’s performances have been patchy, the Indian team management obviously believes in his capacity to enforce the pace attack.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya, who has demonstrated his fitness and has been bowling aggressively, will support the trio.

Will the decision by the selectors to field only three pacers at the Asia Cup in the UAE in Bumrah’s absence prove to be a prudent one? Time will only tell.

India opt to go spin-heavy 

India has chosen to mainly rely on their spinners during the competition because there are only three frontline pacers in the squad. Leg spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Bishnoi are supported by shrewd veteran Ravichandran Ashwin and left-armer Ravindra Jadeja, giving the squad a decent mix of tinkerers.

As all-rounders who can also bat down the order, Jadeja and Ashwin will be a great addition. The Indian team management plainly believes the wickets in the United Arab Emirates would favour spinners because there are four spinners in the squad, and captain Rohit Sharma will largely rely on them to perform as both attacking and containing alternatives.

The choices also paint a clear picture of the hierarchy in the Indian spin department, with left-armer Kuldeep Yadav and all-rounder Axar Patel appearing to be at the bottom of the totem pole.

Despite his recent stellar performances with both the bat and the ball, Axar was only able to secure a spot in the reserves because India preferred the wisdom of Jadeja over him.

Final opportunity for youngsters to stake their claim

The Indian team for the Asia Cup has several intriguing young players despite the return of some well-known players. For athletes like Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, and Deepak Hooda, the competition will be an opportunity to demonstrate their talent on a major stage and secure their travel arrangements to Australia.

After making their debuts following the disaster in the 2021 T20 World Cup, all four young players have had an effect in the shortest format.

With his cunning and variety, Ravi Bishnoi has dazzled, taking 15 wickets in nine games with an economy rate of 7.15 in the shortest format. Many hitters are baffled by his mastery of the googly in particular.

Arshdeep Singh made his debut while on the England trip and, in his brief career of six games, has created a lasting impression because to his cool demeanour. He has taken 15 wickets at an economy rate of 6.33 while hitting some scorching yorkers.

Avesh Khan will have the opportunity to stake out yet another claim for a spot in the World Cup squad thanks to his ability to extract pace and bounce at the Asia Cup. From 13 games, he has taken 11 wickets while maintaining an economy rate of 8.67.

Finally, Deepak Hooda has defeated Shreyas Iyer’s competition thanks to his strong desire and adaptability. The 27-year-old has participated in nine T20 Internationals, amassing 274 runs at an impressive strike rate of 161.17 and an impressive average of 54.80, including one memorable century against Ireland.
