England Squad For ICC T20 World Cup 2021

T20 World Cup 2020 England Squad

England, this season is eyeing the T20 World cup 2021 with some of the best T20 world cup squads they have ever had. Governed by England Cricket Board, England cricket team is one of the oldest teams to play cricket. In fact, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Englishmen were the people who invented the game, at the home of cricket, Lord’s Cricket Ground. England, along with Australia and South Africa is one of those nations that laid the foundation of cricket as we see it today. They also laid the foundation for ICC. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that England is one of the nations that we can consider as a superpower in the world of cricket.

England has some of the best T20 players in the whole world. They also have their domestic T20 cricket tournaments that provide the national side with some of the best players that can be further groomed for future cricket. Hence, we can say that a culture of T20 cricket is also becoming dominant in England. Their national T20 squad is right now captained by Eoin Morgan, some of few players who have played for more than two countries internationally. England also ranks number 3 in this format and a strong contender for ICC T20 World Cup this year.

England T20 World Cup Squad Prediction

England is full of some of the best T20 players around the world and they have also proved themselves at both the international and franchise cricket platform. They also have their own franchise league and some of the best domestic circuits that develops some of the fine cricketers in the world. Just like we have told you before, English fans are really enthusiastic about their team and have high hopes for them.

They want to know what players will be representing their country in this ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. But unfortunately, the squad is not announced yet and we can just speculate. Following are some players that we think have a strong chance to be in England’s squad for ICC T20 World Cup that is going to start on 18th of October 2021.

  1. Eoin Morgan
  2. Joe Root
  3. Ben Stokes
  4. Dawid Malan
  5. Alex Hales
  6. Jonny Bairstow
  7. Adil Rashid
  8. Chris Jordan
  9. Jofra Archer
  10. David Willey

Eoin Morgan

Currently playing as captain for England in the T20 squad, Eoin Morgan is one of those few players who have played for more than one country in the international scene. He was made captain at a very difficult time but proved himself to be a leader, leading from the front, changing the mindset with which England play cricket. Under his captaincy, they won their first-ever ODI World Cup.

He also enjoys a really good T20 record, being able to play shots all over the part. His leadership skills are much needed for a successful campaign in this T20 world cup 2021. Will he be able to lead England T20 squad to victory? Let’s just wait and see.

Joe Root

With his elegance with the bat, Root has established himself as one of the giants of this game in the modern era. With his solid technique and dexterity with the shots that he plays, Joe Root makes for an excellent batsman that you need the top in the batting order.

Although he hasn’t played any T20I match since May 2019, his class of player sure can be crucial when you are going to play in a world even like ICC T20 world cup. So we can expect him to see in this world cup.

Ben Stokes

His aggressive nature and playing style took the England, team, to another level. He made his debut in the T20 team back in 2013 but didn’t quite have performed that well in the international circuit, or that’s what stats will tell you. What they won’t tell you is how stokes rose up from the 2016 T20 final nightmare where he gave away runs to Windies batsman Carlos Brathwaite to winning the 2019 World Cup with his unbeaten 84 runs.

He has great potential as an all-rounder and England T20 squad will be incomplete without him. He has proven to be a match-winner and such players are always welcome in the squad.

Dawid Malan

A large built left-handed batsman, Malan made a fierce entry to the international cricket with his furious 44 balls 78 runs innings. This was the fastest runs by any England debutant in T20 cricket. He also made the fastest T20 century by an England cricketer in T20s, a 45 ball 100. All of these performances of his made him the best T20 batsman England has right now.

Even though being criticized for selection, Malan proved his worth and definitely deserves a spot in England’s T20 world cup squad.

Alex Hales

Alex hales a 6ft 5-inch-tall batsman, stature made of t20 cricket hits the bat with an intent to send the ball out of the park. He is England’s one of the most experienced players in T20 cricket. Although his start in the T20 internationals wasn’t so good, he showed his killer intent in the next series against where he scored 48 balls 62 runs against Windies. He has been a constant man for England when it comes to the limited-overs format.

Hales also has played a lot in franchise cricket and such experience is needed in such a huge tournament. Now it’s up to ECB management whether they want him in the England T20 world cup squad or not.

Jonny Bairstow

Due to his prolific run making for Yorkshire and aggressive nature, he was selected for England’s national side. Bairstow also occasionally keeps wickets in the international game, although being a wicketkeeper for his domestic side. He is a solid middle-order batsman and gives you quick runs in the middle overs where the field doesn’t let you open up your arms with the bat.

His fierce intent to hit the ball out of the park and experience in T20 format makes him a good choice for selectors. We can expect him in T20 world cup squad if he retains his form in upcoming matches.

Adil Rashid

We cannot say that there are a plethora of spinners in England. And we can definitely not say that there are many quality legspinners that are successful in taking wickets in domestic cricket. England has always needed a quality spinner in its squad ever since the retirement of Graeme Swann. And Adil filled in those shoes to some extent.

He has been an important component in England’s spin bowling attack and their best bowler in the T20 format. We definitely expect him in England T20 world cup squad in this edition of the tournament. He also has the ability to hit the bat hard, which is an additional quality which favours his selection in the squad.

Chris Jordan

Jordan has everything that you need in a T20 player, a useful lower-order batsman who doesn’t know fear, the fearsome fast bowler who can bowl Yorkers and slower ones, and on the top of that, he is one of the best fielders. He is a complete package that you most definitely need in your T20 squad. Jordan has also experience of playing T20 leagues all over the globe and showed promise as a player.

Such energy and excitement for the game, his passion has led to his selection in the T20 squad for New Zealand tour last November. If he keeps impressing selectors with his performance, he will be a useful component for England in T20 world cup squad.

Jofra Archer

Hailing from Barbados, full of skyrocketing talent, Jofra was first spotted by Chris Jordon who had faced him in the nets in a casual practising session. Jordan said, and I quote, that his for Jofra, “Sky is the limit”. Jofra has a high arm action which enables him to bowl constantly at a speed of over 90 mph. He was also instrumental for England’s win in ICC World Cup 2019.

With passion and pace, he is sure to prove useful to his team on the fast tracks of Australia. He is also a useful lower-order batsman that hits big shots with no fear. Such qualities are needed in a T20 player. Even if he hasn’t played any T20 match for some months, he can be a feasible choice for England this T20 world cup.

David Willey

Whatever T20 cricket demands of a player, David has it all. Whether it’s fielding like an athlete on the field, or being creative with his bowling or clean hitting, he is a jack of all trades. He has outstanding stats with the ball. He has taken about 175 wickets in 185 T20 matches that he played across the globe, whether franchise games or international ones. He also has a good record with the bat, scoring two t20 tons with a staggering strike rate

Such all-round performances make him a prime choice to be in England T20 world cup squad.

England T20 World Cup Squad Date

England’s record in the T20 format is a good one. Since its start, England has played a total of 114 T20 international games in which it has won 56 games and lost 52 games. Thus we can say that the English have got a pretty good T20 record if we keep their win-loss ratio in the format in mind. They also won their sole trophy of T20 World cup back in 2010 where they defeated their traditional rivals Australia.
Thus we can say that England is also pretty good when it comes to T20 Cricket and English fans are pretty enthusiastic about the T20 games.

This is evident from the fact that their stadiums are always full even during domestic T20 leagues such as NatWest T20 Blast. Fans are always excited to know the latest details about their teams and they also want to know when the England T20 World Squad is going to be revealed. This is evident from the fact that you, my dear friends are reading this piece we have written about your favorite team.

When the ECB is going to announce the England T20 World cup squad?

The date is not announced yet. We can assume that they will announce the T20 world cup squad sometime before the start of the world cup, which is the 18th of October. Last time they also did the same thing and this time around we can expect the same trend

India Squad List – T20 World Cup 2021

T20 World Cup 2020 India Squad List

India has one of the best T20 world cup squad players in the world. When we discuss t20 cricket, it is impossible not to mention India. India has always had some of the best t20 players in the world since the start of the format at international level. India gained its test status in the 1930s but rose to fame with its bombastic players in the 70s. They have also won two ODI world cups of 1985 and 2011 under the captaincy of Kapil Dev and MS Dhoni respectively.

India also won the very first edition of the T20 world cup back in 2007 and it remains to be their only T20 world cup trophy, which they won in the final against their traditional rivals, Pakistan. Indians are pretty enthusiastic about T20 cricket and considered to be one of the strongest teams in the format. With appropriate T20 environment provided to the players, they are best in the format and enjoy a sort of dominancy in T20 games.

India T20 World Cup Squad Prediction

As well have told you before, Indians really love the t20 games and thus, avidly discuss the squad formations and players. They are very interested in their team and love to predict the T20 world cup squad. This can be seen from the avid use of different fantasy league whenever IPL starts. IPL is India’s premier T20 league which they enthusiastically follow and the stadiums are always full, which shows that Indians just love the format.

It is IPL that has enabled BCCI to select a strong t20 team that performs well in the tournaments and international T20 matches. This year, the selection of India’s T20 world cup squad will also be on the basis of IPL. Those youngsters and new players who will perform well in IPL or have been performing well will definitely be given a chance in T20 World cup. But we do have a list in which we have predicted some players which are almost certain to play this year’s T20 world cup from India.

  1. Virat Kholi
  2. Kl Rahul
  3. Rohit Sharma
  4. Shikhar Dhawan
  5. Sanju Samson
  6. Washington Sundar
  7. Jasprit Bumrah
  8. Shardul Thakur
  9. YS Chahal

Virat Kohli

A proven match-winner, India’s skipper in all formats of the game, Virat is a go to choice when it comes to your batting lineup. Virat Kohli has always taken his team out of desperate situations and is their premier batsman. Virat Kohli has a T20 record that players around the world wish they could achieve. He as a staggering average of over 50 in the format and has been a man of the series since the last two editions of the T20 World Cup.

Hence, Virat is definitely going to be a part of India’s T20 world cup squad and is going to be crucial for India in a successful campaign this season.

KL Rahul

Currently India’s best batsman in the format, KL Rahul has is a player whose performances speak for himself. It was his successful performances in the Ranji trophy that got the attention of Sunrisers Hyderabad management and he went off for one crore rupees in the auction. This proved to be a good decision as he went on to be one of their best batsmen in the IPL. Virat proved to be a top-class opening batsman who could score quick runs in the power play and wicket keep if need be.

He has some outstanding stats in T20 with two tons and a staggering strike rate. He is everything you look for in a T20 opening batsman and we can hope to see him in action this T20 world cup.

Rohit Sharma

Nicknamed “hitman”, Rohit Sharma has a profile that speaks for itself. Naturally talented and gifted, Rohit worked hard and persistent in his career that finally paid off with his casual double hundreds and centuries in different formats of the game. He is the best opener for India and is a run-scoring machine who can score all around the park.

Rohit Sharma has everything, stats, talent, experience and technique and temperament. He has a staggering average of 32 with a bombastic strike rate. Such an amazing stats and his experience make him an obvious choice in the team and definitely is going to be in India’s T20 World cup squad this season.

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan, with his ability to play strokes in every direction, has proven himself to be a successful opener for India across all formats of the game. Dhawan is one of the most experienced batsmen in the Indian batting line up when it comes to T20s. he has played over 200 T20 matches in the domestic circuit and has shown some impressive record.

He has scored over 50 half-centuries with an impressive strike rate and provides a solid head start which makes him first choice opener for India. We can expect him to be in the lineup, although it is a bit difficult for him to be in playing 11 due to successful players already in the game. But he can definitely be in the 16 players selected for T20 world cup squad.

Sanju Samson

Just like every other player nowadays in the T20 team, Sanju also gained the attention of BCCI through his impressive records in the IPL. His talent as a player is great and his potential was recognized himself by one of the most prestigious batsmen from India, Rahul Dravid. Dravid is one of his interviews told media that Samson is the person to watch out for.

He has also gained some experience playing the domestic circuit and has scored some runs before being selected for the national T20 squad. If he is successful enough in this season of IPL and series with Sri Lanka, he is definitely going to be the part of India T20 World cup squad.

Washington Sundar

A player who started off as a batsman in his younger days, Sundar, later on, established himself to be an impressive bowler who could retain runs and take wickets. Washington gained some attention after his time in India’s Under 19s and got selected into Pune Supergiants in 2017. In an era where it is difficult for spinners to survive in the format, Washington has proved himself to be an economical bowler.

Sundar fills in the spot of a spinner who can bowl in the middle overs and retain the runs which is an impressive quality when it comes to T20s. Thus, we can expect Sundar to be in India’s T20 World Cup squad. Only time will tell if this youngster can be a replacement of his senior, Ashwin.

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah like other players of his generation gained attention by his performances in IPL. He has a very unorthodox action that bamboozles the batsmen and his slower ones are difficult to pick. Right now he is the best bowler India has, but his career didn’t start from this point. Bumrah had to work hard in his game and all the hard work is now paying off.

In 45 T20 matches that he has played, he has taken a total of 53 wickets with an economy rate of 6.69. Such an impressive record in the game makes Bumrah an automatic choice in the bowling lineup. He has established himself to be the leader and spearhead of Indian bowling lineup and the team will be incomplete without him in T20 world cup squad.

Shardul Thakur

Thakur, a good build bowler, hailing from a village 87 km away from Mumbai is one of the quickest bowlers of India. He has both things necessary for a fast bowler, swing and pace. He has an ability to swing the bowl away from the right-handed batsmen. Shardul is also handy with the bat lower in the order and can hit the bat hard on his day.

Thakur is a bowler who can provide breakthroughs early on in the game and is going to a valuable asset to the team if selected to play on the hard and fast pitches of Australia.

YS Chahal

Known to be an attacking wicket-taking bowler, Chahal is a valuable asset to his team. Although he can give away some runs, he can easily bamboozle his opponent with his wrong one. He has an impressive record with the bowl in the t20 matches he has played. He has taken over 50 wickets in 37 t20 matches he played for India.

Nowadays when it is difficult for bowlers, especially spinners to breath and gain some advantage on the pitch, Chahal’s attacking nature sets him apart and makes him a valuable asset to his team. Not only he can bowl the middle overs but can give you breakthroughs with his variations and has a strong chance to make into the T20 world cup squad for India in this edition of ICC T20 World cup.

Now only time will tell how accurate is this prediction of ours. It all depends on the player’s form and fitness that they will be selected in India T20 World cup squad or not.

India T20 World Cup Squad Date

India is a cricket-loving nation and is always excited about the games. Whether its Test matches, ODIs or T20, they are always enthusiastic about supporting their team in every match and in every tournament. Thus, India’s population is always waiting for such events, especially IPL as it has become a part of their culture since its inception. The full stands in the stadiums speak for their love for T20 games.

Due to such enthusiasm, Indian fans are always waiting for which squad will be representing them in the T20 world cup squad. Over the tea, among the elders and teenagers, as the t20 World cup approaches, discussions on the topic of T20 world cup squad start and they are always waiting for when BCCI will announce India T20 world cup squad.

You are here because you wanted to know when BCCI is going to announce the players, well, the date is not yet known. We can only speculate that BCCI will announce the T20 World cup squad a month before the start of a tournament. Last time in 2016 they followed this pattern and this time they are due to do the same.

 

West Indies Squad – T20 World Cup 201

T20 World Cup 2020 West Indies Squad

West Indies for T20 World Cup 2021 is not yet announced. All the fans around the world wait for when the defending champions, the West Indies announce their squad for T20 World cup. All the cricket fans know about the legendary Windies but if you just got into cricket, let’s give you a brief history tour. The West Indies Cricket team, administrated by Cricket West Indies, is Men’s cricket team representing a group of islands of Anglophone Caribbean region. West Indies Cricket team are also nicknamed as Windies and are one of the oldest test playing nations after England and Australia.

The Windies were considered to be one of the greatest cricket teams from the 70s to 90s. They won two consecutive Cricket world cups and are also the most successful team in ICC T20 World Cup tournament. A lot of great players such as Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Gary Sobers, Brian Charles Lara, Sir Andy Roberts, Sir Curtly Ambrose etc. hailed from this team. Known for the aggressive cricket they have played throughout the history of cricket. The Windies have an element of surprise to them. Even during the moments of their certain defeat, they can bounce back and win.

West Indies T20 World Cup Squad Prediction

West Indies have had some of the best players in every era and due to the aggressive cricket they have been playing for a long time, they have garnered success in a lot of tournaments they have played as a team. The Windies know no other way other than going all out. Thus, you will see a lot of aggressive style players no matter what the era when it comes to the good old windies.

Due to such playing style, fans always enjoy all the matches the windies play, and there is always a buzz in the ground. Thus you as a fan must also be waiting for the West Indies T20 World Cup Squad to be announced. But all we can do for you is to predict the squad for you. And that we have already done for you. Following are some of the players that we think are going to be a part of West Indies’ campaign for this T20 World cup. They are the defending champions after all who took away the title from England in a breathtaking finale last season. Will they be able to defend their title this time? Let’s ride the tide of time to know about it. 

  1. Kieron Pollard
  2. Hayden Walsh Jr
  3. Darren Bravo
  4. Lendl Simmons
  5. Evin Lewis

Kieron Pollard

Pollard can be considered a specialist when it comes to limit over formats of the game. Although he debuted for Windies in 2007, his career took off when he was picked up by Mumbai Indians in 2010. He had modest stats when MI selected him for IPS session but what they selected him for was his ability to hit the bat hard. That auction for him turned his world upside down and made him a T20 sensation. He garnered a lot of experience in the franchise cricket over the years. He can be considered to be one of the most experienced players for windies in this format. Numerous times he chose franchise cricket over playing for his national side. He was instrumental for the teams he played for all these times. 

His athletics in the field and decent medium makes him an ideal choice for this format. Right now he is captaining his in the T20 internationals. Pollard’s athletic fielding and ability to ball and bat makes him a valuable asset for the team and will be in West Indies T20 world cup squad for this season.

Hayden Walsh Jr

Hayden Walsh Jr is a windies cricketer who first played for the USA. Coming from a family where his father and uncle, both were phenomenal players in the domestic circuit, Hayden had a perfect environment where he nourished his cricketing skills. He debuted in the international scene for the USA against the United Arab Emirates last year. Those were the first international matches played by the USA team. He also represented States in different ODI matches before being selected by Cricket West Indies for their series against Afghanistan in India. He also debuted for windies in ODIs against Afghanistan in the same series. Thus making him one of the few players who have played for two teams in international matches. 

He is currently some of the best bowlers windies have in the T20 format and thus makes an automatic choice in the West Indies T20 world cup squad. His wrong ones bamboozled Indians on their home soil, and his highlight in the games was when he got the scalp of India’s premier batsman Virat Kohli. If the youngster holds his nerves, he sure as hell can be a key to winning some matches for his team

Darren Bravo

Bravo is also one of those players which you can consider as a specialist when it comes to the limited-overs format of cricket. For years he has dominated the limited formats for his country whenever he wasn’t playing due to his recurring injuries. Handy with both bat and ball, he adds another level of charisma in the lineup. He bamboozled a lot of batsmen with his slower ones and has some quick knocks with the bat there and there. If not for his commitment to the franchises, he could have played for his national side a lot more. Due to these commitments, he also pulled out of a central contract that would have bound him to play for the windies all the time.

His profile in the T20 matches speaks for itself. He has played a total of 451 T20 matches scoring over 6000 runs with an impressive strike rate. With such an impressive record, he has always been the prime choice for franchise owners when making their squads for the tournaments. He was also instrumental in the West Indies’ last successful campaign of the T20 world cup.

He has everything that a team needs in its T20 players, handy with the old ball and new, power hitter of the bat, and athletic when it comes to fielding. Fielding is an important perspective as it wins you matches nowadays. Thus we can predict his presence in the West Indies’ squad of the T20 world cup in 2021.

Lendl Simmons

Lendl Simmons, an impressive versatile opening batsman, is one of the fiery T20 specialists from West indies. With the ability to play shots in every nook of the ground, it becomes difficult for fielding side to set any field for him. Simmons made his international debut back in 2006, and over the years has made a successful limited-overs career for himself, not only in his national side but in different franchises around the globe. Despite a disappointing career in Test matches, Simmons has made a name for himself in limited-overs format, especially in T20 cricket, being a constant source of fast runs in the initial phase of the game. He helped his teams win a lot of matches along the span of his long career in franchises.

He was also instrumental for Windies in their way to final of 2016 T20 world cup when he steered his team towards 192 targets given by India. Thus, windies found themselves in the final of the tournament, which they successfully won. Hence, Simmons crucial role in the batting lineup of windies cannot be ignored by Cricket West Indies, and he is certainly going to be the part of West Indies T20 World cup squad. 

Evin Lewis

Like his mentor Chris Gayle, Evin likes to hit big and hit them out of the park. Like most of his peers, he specializes in t20 cricket. He is a modern T20 batsman in a true sense and performs big in important matches, which accounts for his ability to hold his nerves in important matches. He has also played for franchises and proved himself to be a match-winner in the format.

Right now, He is west indie’s best batsman in the format and will be part of T20 World cup squad for his team. 

West Indies T20 World Cup Squad Date

The windies have always played entertaining cricket, whether it is Test, ODIs or T20 internationals, and that is why fans are always left holding their seats when they are watching them play. All of these fans around the world and all the cricket gurus wait for Cricket West Indies to announce their Squad for T20 world cup 2021.

Although no officials from the governing bodies have announced the date for when they will announce the squads, we can speculate that they will announce the squads sometime before the start of the T20 World cup. We can guess that Cricket West Indies will announce the name of the players from the squads sometime during the mid of August to September 2021. The world cup is going to start on the 18th of October 2021, so they have to announce the squads at least a month earlier. That is our speculation, and we are pretty much sure that they will announce the squads during these days. 

 

Australia Squad – T20 World Cup 2021

T20 World Cup 2020 Australia Squad

Australians hold an important position in the world’s cricket and fans wait about every detail about Australia’s T20 World cup squad this season. Aussies hold an important place in the world of cricket and are one of the oldest teams, having played the very first test match and also the very first T20 match.

The first t20 match ever was played between Aussies and the Kiwis. So it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Australians are pioneers of modern-day cricket that we all play and enjoy nowadays. With such a rich cricketing history, fans follow the Aussies very avidly, and supporters would like to know the details about when Cricket Australia is going to announce the Australia T20 World Cup Squad for ICC men’s T20 World Cup 2021.

Australia T20 World Cup Squad Date

Australians rank 2nd in the ICC Men’s T20 Ranking and have a huge following worldwide. All the fans of Cricket Australia are waiting for every single detail they can get about Australia’s T20 World Cup squad, but to our dismay, Cricket Australia hasn’t yet disclosed any details regarding the matter under discussion. Much is left to our speculation. Last time for the 2016 T20 World cup they announced the t20 world cup squad about a month before the advent of the t20 world. So we can also guess that this time Cricket Australia is going to announce the team between August and September 2021. We can only wait for when the officials to give any details about the matter under discussion. 

Australia T20 World Cup Squad Prediction

Australia is full of cricketing talent; it is difficult to get into the national side because of the level of competition there is in the domestic and international circuits. Their internal cricket structure makes it competitive, and players are filtered through a lot of tough matches and strict fitness regimes before they get to enter into the national cricket team and represent the Australian cricket team. Being a superpower in the cricketing world, Cricket Australia has a reputation to maintain, and thus, it would be too harsh on them to expect them to announce a squad this early.

However, we, as fans, can get a little speculative and guess the team based on stats on some of the players in the Australian cricketing circuit. The following are some of the players who we think can get a place in the T20 World cup squad.

  1. Aron Finch
  2. Steven Smith
  3. David Warner
  4. Pat Cummins
  5. Mitchell Starc
  6. Adam Zampa
  7. Ashton Agar
  8. Glenn Maxwell

Aron Finch

The first and the most obvious choice when it comes to predicting the Australian T20 World Cup Squad 2021 is their captain Aron Finch. Finch is a bombastic T20 batsman and ranks 2nd in ICC T20 Batsman ranking. He has always been an automatic selection when it comes to the limited-overs format and is an aggressive batsman that has steered Aussies to a number of victories. Finch was also tried in a couple of test matches, but his modest record in the longer format of the game has left him to concentrate all of his talents in the shorter formats of cricket. And rightly so finch has been an in-demand batsman when it comes to different T20 leagues around the world.

He has played for seven different IPL franchises and has also played for Yorkshire and Surrey. Finch’s t20 records are also pretty impressive, with a batting average of 38.32 with a strike rate of about 156. He has also scored two centuries and 11 half-centuries T20I. All of these stats point him out to be a solid choice for the T20 world cup squad this season.

Steven Smith

Starting as a leg-break bowler to being one of the best batsmen in the world, Steven smith’s journey as a cricketer has been a wild ride indeed. Steven Smith, through sheer hard work and dedication, and passion for his game, has become Australia’s best batsman since the great Sir Donald Bradman. He was always considered to be a naturally gifted player. But he wasn’t empty of flaws either. His techniques had lots of problems, and he didn’t have a solid stance at the pitch. But he trained on his shortcomings and came back stronger and harder. He was also instrumental in Australia’s successful campaign of ICC ODI World Cup 2015, is the leading run-scorer for his team. 

He is also an experienced T20 batsman, playing with numerous franchises all over the world. Although his bowling has regressed with time, he still can bowl an over or two. Anyhow, his batting skills are what makes him a force to be reckoned with in the shorter formats of the game, and thus he is the player that we should all be wary of in this season of the T20 world cup since he is going to cash the home advantage to the fullest as he did in 2015 World cup.

David Warner

David Warner has established himself as one of the best openers for his team in all the formats of the game. Whether it is test cricket or T20, he can switch gears according to the situation and has proven himself to be a match-winner for the Australian cricket team.

His importance in the team is huge, such that he was named as he was made vice-captain to Steven Smith in all formats of the game. Warner started his career as a T20 specialist and was the firsts man since 1877, to play for his national side without playing a single first-class match. No one ever considered him to be a batsman for the longer format of the game, but he proved himself to be a solid batsman in all formats of the game.

Averaging 30 with an impressive strike rate of 140, David warner is an impressive T20 batsman and has played in franchises all over the world. He has about eight 100s and 73 50s in the format, making him the ultimate choice for the T20 world cup squad. 

Pat Cummins

Debuting early in the 2011s, Pat Cummins has been Australia’s pace spearhead lately. Following the ball-tampering scandal, he became the Australian side’s shining star showed great performances with the ball with a nine-wicket haul. Pat Cummins has been playing franchise cricket for a long time and had successful stead with Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL. During his stead with IPL, he had some useful bowling sessions with the great Wasim Akram, which certainly proved helpful to the young fast bowler.

Cummins has excellent stats when it comes to bowling in T20 internationals. He has taken 32 wickets in 25 matches with an impressive economy rate of 6.77. His ability to take wickets along with controlling the run rate makes him an excellent weapon for Aussies and useful addition in the bowling arsenal. Currently, he is a vice-captain for Australia in all the formats and is also a useful lower-order batsman. And probably the peak of his career highlights can be considered the fact that he has now named as ICC test cricketer of the year. 

Pat Cummins with such outstanding achievements, makes for an automatic choice of Australia’s T20 World Cup squad, and it will be exciting to see him in action.

Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc can be considered as Australia’s spearhead with the new ball in all the formats of the game, and his ability to swing the ball into the right-handed batsman makes him a dangerous baller to face early in the game. In 28 T20 international matches that Starc has played, he took 39 wickets with an impressive run rate of 6.74. Starc’s energy and charisma as a fast bowler and his furious pace make him a useful asset on bouncy pitches of his home country, which is going to host the T20 World Cup 2021. 

Starc also was instrumental in his country’s success in the 2015 world cup. This time the tournament is also going to be held in Australia, and thus, having him on the team is going to be an advantage for the team. His pace, along with great control over the swing, made him unplayable during the 2015 ICC World cup. Thus, we can all expect him to be a part Australia T20 World Cup Squad for sure.

Adam Zampa

Just like his fellow teammate Steven Smith, Zampa’s career is nothing short of huge changes. He first started off as a medium-paced bowler. But due to restrictions put up by Cricket Australia about how many fast bowlers could play in the Under 14s, he started to bowl leg break. Adam, with a run-up and style similar to that of legendary Shane Warne, became a leading spin bowler for his country.

With slight pace variations and a googly and flipper, Zampa makes up for his lack of spin produced in contact with the pitch. He has some awesome stats in t20 cricket as a bowler, taking 28 wickets in 27 matches with an impressive economy rate of 6.15. This ability of his to control runs made him the most successful bowler for Aussies in the 2016 T20 world cup. 

Adam has some impressive record when it comes to the T20 format of the game. He was Australia’s most successful bowler for the last T20 world cup, as we have mentioned before, with an average of 13.8 and an economy of 6.27. These stats cemented his place for further matches with his national side. He also played in IPL the following year and took the tournament’s second-best bowling figures, taking six wickets for 19 runs, second only to Pakistan’s Sohail Tanvir. Thus Zampa can be a certain choice for Cricket Australia when they announce Australia’s T20 World Cup Squad.

Ashton Agar

Ashton agar is a left-arm orthodox spinner who plays for Australia in all formats of the game. Handy with the bat later on in the order, he is considered to be a bowling all-rounder. During his debut test match, he made 98 runs coming at number 11, saving his team from a batting disaster.

He can vary the pace and spin the ball, bamboozling the batsmen, making it difficult for them to hit him for runs. He has an overall economy of 6.92 in 21 T20 international matches and been in the form lately in the format. If he can impress the selectors of Cricket Australia, his place in the T20 World cup squad is very likely. 

Glenn Maxwell

Maxwell is considered to be Australia’s premier batsman in Limited over formats of the game. He is one of the quickest batsmen out there to make runs on the pitch. His ability to play unorthodox shots all over the field makes it difficult for the fielding side to set any set field for him. He plays a pivotal role in the middle order for the Australian batting lineup. Glenn Maxwell has been a specialist when it comes to the T20 format.

Maxwell steered his teams to victory numerous times due to his risk-taking and bombastic strike rate. He is a hard hitter of the ball and doesn’t know when to stop. Maxwell recorded for the fastest fifty in the history of Australian domestic cricket and the Second fastest ODI century in world cup history and fastest by any Australian. 

He also has a lot of experience playing T20 cricket all over the world and is handy with the ball. He ranks 2nd in ICC all-rounders rankings and is a crucial part of the Australian T20 side. Thus he is undoubtedly going to be a part of the Australia T20 World Cup Squad.

All is left for speculation but the squad is expected to be announced a month or two before the start of the world cup. As we know, Pakistan is full of talent, so it would be difficult for PCB to announce the squad without giving a proper chance to all the youngsters.

But we can speculate on our side that what players are going to be selected for the T20 world cup. And that we will do for you today.

The following are some of the players that we have shortlisted that we think are going to be instrumental in Pakistan’s success in the upcoming T20 world cup 2021.

  1. Babar Azam
  2. Naseem Shah
  3. Haris Sohail
  4. Shada Khan
  5. Shaheen Shah Afridi
  6. Muhammad Amir
  7. Hari Rauf
  8. Iftikhar Ahmad
  9. Wahab Riaz
  10. Imad Wasim

Babar Azam

Since his debut in international cricket, Babar has been a fascinating talent and a treat to watch for cricket fans. His solid technique and calm composure have led to his success in international cricket, especially when it comes to limited-overs cricket. Babar has excellent stats in One Day International and T20 internationals with batting averages of 54 and 50, respectively. He provides calmness to the batting lineup and successfully has taken over the role of a one-down batsman. He is currently ranking top among the batsman in the T20 rankings and had a nice run with the club tournaments in England.
With such an amazing talent, Babar is sure to make it into the Pakistan T20 world cup squad.

Naseem Shah

Pakistan has always been considered as the home of fast bowlers and has always been giving the world of cricket new and exciting young talent when it comes to fast bowlers. With icons like Imran, Wasim, Waqar, and Shoaib, Naseem has a high standard that he has to maintain and a name to uphold. Naseem Shah, a sixteen-year-old fast bowler, amazed the world of cricket with his furious pace and became the youngest fast bowler to take five wickets in an innings in a Test match.

At such a young age, the fast bowler has amazed the whole world, and with hard work and resilience, he sure is to confirm his spot in the upcoming edition of the T20 world cup. And who wouldn’t want to see this young right-arm fast bowler on the pitches of Australia? Who knows what this young fast bowler will be capable of in those conditions. That is why it is highly likely that PCB will show interest in this if he shows some excellent performance with the ball in the upcoming Pakistan Super League that will be played from February this year.

Haris Rauf

Haris Rauf is another example of fast bowling talent in Pakistan. He was discovered by Lahore Qalandars’ team management in an open trial for the PSL. With his brisk pace and amazing talent, he secured a place in the Hobart Hurricanes following the injury faced by the South African quickie Dale Steyn but secured his place in the team. With his street smartness with the bowl and passion for fast bowling, Haris bamboozled the batsmen in BigBash and already has a five-wicket haul and a hat-trick.

Hari’s eyes for his spot in the upcoming edition for the T20 world cup will be played in Australia and has high hopes for his selection in the team. But that is up to PCB and a team of selectors that will review his performances in PSL and further domestic matches. But with his passion and hard work and high pace, Haris is likely to get a place in the T20 squad for the T20 world cup.

Shaheen Shah Afridi

With such a cute little face pasted on a huge 6ft body, Shaheen is a typical fast bowling talent from Pakistan. With an elder brother who already had represented the national side in a test match, Shaheen was raised in a cricketing environment. He was already on the radar on national selectors due to his performances in under 19s and then later on, with his brilliant performances with the bowl in PSL representing Lahore Qalandars, Shaheen sealed his place into the national side and then began a line of international performances that made Shaheen Afridi the spearhead of Pakistan’s fast bowling attack.
With an excellent record like he has in the T20 format, Shaheen will be in the squad for this T20 world cup and once again show the whole world why he is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to bowling in the limited-overs format.

Shadab Khan

Discovered in the 2017 edition of HBL PSL, Shadab was an excellent young legspinner who could turn the ball well and had a whole set of variations that made him suitable for bowling in t20 matches.

Shadab Khan is also a handy batsman in the lower order that increases his worth even more in the limited-overs format. Shadab khan later cemented his place in the t20 and ODI teams with his outstanding ability to take wickets while keeping the runs under control. This makes him an ideal bowler for the t20 format and an ideal contender to be in the Pakistani squad for the T20 world cup.

Muhammad Amir

With such an adroitness with the ball, Muhammad Amir was selected in a talent hunt by Wasim and Imran khan. His ability to seam and swing the ball at a high pace and smartness with the ball in the later stages of the game made him a premier fast bowler for Pakistan’s side and a leading fast bowler. But following his fixing scandal, he was banned from playing cricket. Since his return to the international cricket scene, he has proven himself to be a spearhead for Pakistan’s bowling attack and provides early breakthroughs.

With his wicket-taking ability with the new ball and ability to contain runs, it is not impossible to say that Amir surely is going to play this edition of the t20 world cup if the fast bowler is able to retain his form and fitness until the final selection of the team.

Iftikhar Ahmad

With continuous hard work and outstanding performances in domestic cricket, Iftikhar finally came on the radar of the national selector for his selection into the Pakistan squad. He made his debut into the national side in 2015 but failed to impress the selectors due to his poor performances. But since then, he has made a strong comeback in the national squad. Averaging 50 in List A matches with an impressive strike rate he was selected in the T20 side and since then has been performing well.

He is the hard-hitting batsman that the Pakistani side was craving since the retirement of Shahid Afridi and if he retains this kind of performance, he is sure to cement his place in the upcoming T20 world cup squad

Wahab Riaz

With his furious pace, Wahab Riaz filled in the shoes of legendary Shoaib Akhtar and has some good performances here and there since his debut into international cricket but has been inconsistent. But with his recent performance in the T20 leagues can steer him in the Pakistan T20 World cup squad this season.

Wahab is also quit the longer formats of the game, eyeing his place in the T20 squad, and if he can impress the selectors and management with his performances, he sure will be an excellent addition to the team. His pace and handiness with the bat later in the batting order make him a good asset for the T20 team.

Muhammad Rizwan

Following his performances in the domestic circuit, Rizwan was selected for the national team. With his batting skills and wicket-keeping, he is a valuable asset to the team he plays in. Since the dropping of former captain Sarfaraz Ahmad, it made way for Rizwan in the team back again and if he proves his worth in the PSL, selectors sure will consider him back in the squad.

Imad Wasim

With his pace variations and drift in the ball, Imad is a classic left-arm spinner. He is also handy with the bat when the situation calls for it and has saved his team numerous times when need be. Thus Imad can be a useful addition to the Pakistan T20 World Cup Squad 2021.

These were the players can be selected in the squad for the T20 world cup. Only time will tell if these players are selected or not, but let’s just see how these players perform and end up being selected in the side or not.
