England Squad For ICC T20 World Cup 2022

T20 World Cup 2022 England Squad

England, this season is eyeing the T20 World cup 2022 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 2022.

  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 2022. 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

World Cup T20 India Squad List – Announced

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 the 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 are considered to be one of the strongest teams in the format. With an 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 Announced

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 leagues 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.

india world t20 squads

  1. Virat Kohli (C)
  2. Rohit Sharma (VC)
  3. KL Rahul
  4. Suryakumar Yadav
  5. Ishan Kishan (WK)
  6. Shreyas Iyer
  7. Rishabh Pant (WK)
  8. Hardik Pandya
  9. Ravindra Jadeja
  10. Washington Sundar
  11. Yuzvendra Chahal
  12. Jasprit Bumrah
  13. T Natarajan
  14. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
  15. Mohammad Shami

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.

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.

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 2022

T20 World Cup 2022 West Indies Squad

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 2022.

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.

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 2022.
