Contest to Watch out for in 2022 T20 World Cup

India vs Pakistan

India and Pakistan are two neighboring countries where the passion for cricket is always at its peak. These two nations have a rich history of rivalry as games go down the wire till the last over.T20 World Cup 2022 Live ScoreLIVE IND vs PAK Live Score

Over the years, there have been intensive political issues between these two countries, therefore for the past 8 years, no bilateral cricket was played between these two nations.

India-Pakistan matches always generate higher revenues and viewership. Hence, ICC always schedules India and Pakistan in each and every ICC event.

Surprisingly, this year India and Pakistan don’t meet (schedule could change) in any of the league stage matches as there are not in the same group. However, there are  chances of them facing the knock-outs (semi-final or final).

Pakistan has never won a match against India in ICC events. India and Pakistan have played 4 matches in ICC T20 World Cup, out of which all 4 matches have been won by India.

The last time when these two teams played in WT20 was in 2016 at Eden Gardens. Pakistan batting first only managed to put a below-par score of 118 runs on a pacer-friendly track. India’s run-chase of a low total didn’t start off well as the top order collapsed at 23 for 3. Then Virat Kohli walked to the crease and he started negotiating the Pakistani bowlers in the power-play. After becoming set in the middle, he started playing his shorts. He eventually remained unbeaten at 55 runs to ensure that his team reaches the target well within the 20 overs.

Key Battle: The key battle to watch out for is between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam. Both these are main heroes and spearheads for the batting lineup of their respective teams. Although Virat has got other player’s support with the likes of  Rohit and Rahul. Babar is kind of a lone-warrior for his side. However, the Pakistani fans expect other players’ contributions as well.

India vs England

India and England are set to knock horns in the World Cup group stage match as they are in the same group. These two teams have met thrice in WT20’s from which India has the upper hand by winning 2 out 3.

On 19th September 2007 in a World Cup league stage match between India and England, the left-handed batter of India -Yuvraj Singh smashed 6 sixes in 6 continuous deliveries off Stuart Broad’s over, thus becoming the first batsman to score 6 sixes in an over in a T20 international game. India eventually won the game by 18 runs after posting a mammoth total of 218 courtesy of Yuvraj’s quick-fire 58 of just 16 balls.

The last time when these two teams met in an ICC T20 World Cup was in 2012 where England was bundled out for just 80 runs on a run- chase of 170 runs. The England batters were not able to pick the doosra of off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, thus losing their wicket by getting either bowled or lbw.

Key Battle: One key battle to watch out for is between Rohit Sharma and Jofra Archer. Rohit Sharma tends to get beaten by the quick pace at the start of the innings, hence Jofra Archer is the kind of lethal bowler who can give a tough time to the opening batter.

England Vs Australia

The England-Australia contest will be a famous one as two arch-rivals who met at the Ashes will be face-to-face in this world cup. Although they are not in the same group (as of now) but are expected to meet in the knock-outs.

The last time when these two teams met at ICC knockouts was in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final. England had won that match and eventually went on to win the world cup 2019. Australia will look to seek revenge and try to beat England this time around.

England had won their first ICC title (ICC T20 World Cup) against Australia in 2010.  They convincingly chased a modest total of 147 runs with 3 overs left in the match. England under the captaincy of Paul Collingwood won their maiden ICC title.

Key Battle to Watch out for – The world cricket fans will be eager to see the battle of Steve Smith and Jofra Archer. In Ashes, Jofra Archer had troubled Smith a lot as he bowled a lot of bouncers of speed 145+.  Steve Smith got a nasty blow on the head of Archer’s delivery as he (Smith) was seen lying on the ground for more than 1 minute.

Smith went to the dressing room (retired hurt) but came back again and started taking on Archer’s speedy bouncer as he scored boundaries of pull-shorts. He eventually ended up scoring 90 odd runs in a low-scoring match.

England and India are favorites to win this tournament. Let’s find out the preparations of these top teams.

India

India being the host are one of the strongest teams for the upcoming WT20. India has three main match-winners in the team – Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah. These three players are the pillars of the team around which all other players revolve. 

With the comeback of Rishab Pant in the squad in the upcoming T20I series against England, the team has three impactful players (the other two are Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja) who on their given day can change the course of the game.

Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul are two consistent and reliable players whose experience will come in handy at knock-outs.

Along with these regulars, the Indian team is looking to invest in the newcomers – Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, and Rahul Tewatia. These players have rewarded with a national call for the 5-match T20I series against England after the consistent performance in domestic cricket as well as the IPL.

India has 15 matches (approx) before the start of WT20. Hence India will have enough match practice to settle their probable 15 squad members.

India Probable 20 for WT20: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rishab Pant, Sanju Samson, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, YuzI Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, T Natarajan

England

England’s T20 team currently is the strongest team in world cricket although they are not ranked higher in the ICC T20 rankings. For the 2019 world-cup, England had started their preparation in 2015 itself. They completely changed the style of ODI cricket by scoring 350+ runs regularly in most of ODI matches.

In T20 too, England is well prepared as they have most of their bases covered in the T20 line-up. Credit goes to Eoin Morgan for building a strong unit and giving chances to new players way before the start of the World Cup year. The batting of England is so long that skipper Eoin Morgan pushes himself down the order. 

Dawid Malan who is currently the no of T20 batsmen is in form of his life. He has been a vital player for England’s success in T20I’s recently. England has match-winners like Buttler, Stokes, Roy, and Bairstow who can change the momentum of the match on their given day.

Their bowling also looks decent with Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, and Adil Rashid. Although there not many big names in the bowling department, T20 is a format that does not go on big named bowlers.

England has 13 matches before the start of WT20. England will look to experiment on 2 or 3 spots. Not massive changes will be seen by the team as they will carry the probable 20 players in most of the matches.

England is in search of a third spinner as they will need a back-up option for Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali especially when the world cup is in India.

Although, ECB (England cricket board) has adopted a rotation policy in the pandemic period but England team will rotate their players lesser in the T20 format in comparison to other formats.

England’s Probable 20 for WT20: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, David Malan, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Eoin Morgan, Liam Livingstone, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Reece Topley, Adil Rashid, Liam Dawson,  Alex Hales, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Saqib Mahamood
