- The Indian squad for the T20 World Cup’s 2022 edition has not yet been revealed.
- Sanjay Manjrekar firmly believes that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is an inevitable lock for the men in blue.
- The pacer is an indispensable member of the white-ball squad and is India’s second-highest wicket-taker in T20 Internationals.
The T20 World Cup’s 2022 edition is set to begin in less than three months. The Indian team for the significant competition has not yet been disclosed. It will be exciting to see who ultimately makes the cut, given that several players are in the mix. India has played 13 T20 Internationals in the past few months, and several players have argued their cases to be selected.
Even though they haven’t had a chance to show off their skills, players like KL Rahul, Deepak Chahar, and Kuldeep Yadav are still in the running. According to several sources, the team that will compete in the Asia Cup T20Is is likely to be the same side that will compete in the T20 World Cup. The Indian selectors are expected to meet in the coming days to discuss the Indian team for the upcoming Asia Cup T20 event.
Even though there are still plenty of open spots, certain players have already secured their spots. According to former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one such player who is a lock for the T20 World Cup.
Since the conclusion of IPL 2022, the right-arm bowler has performed admirably. He was bestowed with the ‘Player of the Series’ honour in the home series against South Africa and repeated the feat in the three T20Is against England.
Bhuvneshwar’s performances, in Manjrekar’s opinion, make him an inevitable selection for India at the T20 World Cup. Bhuvneshwar Kumar recently conducted an interview and is currently at the top of his game. It was speculated 18 months ago that he might not have an international career. But he has recovered remarkably and will undoubtedly be included in the team for the T20 world cup. He said on Sports Over The Top, Sports18’s daily sports news programme.
Bhuvi, who last year represented India in the T20 World Cup, has taken 20 wickets for the Men in Blue in 15 games since the tournament’s conclusion. Bhuvneshwar hasn’t taken breaks like many veteran Indian cricketers, which Manjrekar believes has helped the 32-year-old even more.
He said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar stated unequivocally that playing is the best method to break out of a slump, as it is with many players, and hopefully, the same will occur soon.
The pacer is an essential member of the white-ball squad and is India’s second-highest wicket-taker in T20 Internationals. He is now in charge of India’s offence in a five-match series against the West Indies that India is currently leading 2-1.
