India Team in T20 World Cup 2022
In the shortest format of the game, India has enjoyed a great record overall. Since their first T20I in 2006, which they won against South Africa, the team has played more than 170 matches in the format. India’s winning percentage in this format is in excess of 65. No other team that has played more than 150 T20Is has a higher winning percentage. This statistic alone proves how strong India has been in T20Is. India also emerged as the winners of the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup in 2007 when they defeated Pakistan in a nail-biting final at Johannesburg under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
However, India couldn’t repeat those heroics again at the biggest stage and apart from managing a runners-up position in 2014, they have failed to come even close to the coveted T20 World Cup trophy. Under Virat Kohli, India’s performance in the 2021 T20 World Cup proved disappointing for the fans as they got knocked out of the tournament after suffering losses in their first two fixtures of the event.
India finds itself in Group 2 which also features their arch-rivals Pakistan along with another sub-continental team in the form of Bangladesh. South Africa, the team against whom India drew a recent home series 2-2 will also meet India in this group. Two more teams will join them from the qualifiers.

Team India Captain
Rohit Sharma made his India debut in the inaugural T20 World Cup in South Africa. His career has come a long way in the following fifteen years and he has risen to become the captain of the Indian side in all the three formats. The expectations from him will be massive, especially because he has succeeded Virat Kohli, India’s one of the most successful captains. Sharma has been terrific for Team India at the top of the order and is the highest run-getter in the shortest format. India would need him to come good if they are to win the T20 World Cup for the second time.
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Sanju Samson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Jasprit Bumrah
India Team S.W.O.T Analysis
Strengths – India’s batting lineup looks very solid with names like Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli forming the top-order and comeback men Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik to take care of the lower middle order. The experience of all these men should help the Indian team in tackling difficult situations.
Weaknesses – While India’s top three contains some of the most experienced names, the sameness in their batting style might become a cause of concern for the men in blue, as all three of them take some time to settle before accelerating. Their playing style might prove to be a hindrance for India in putting up big totals on the board.
Opportunities – India suffered a humiliating 10 wicket defeat against Pakistan in their opening encounter of the 2021 T20 World Cup. They will get a chance to settle the scores as they go up against the same team in their opening encounter of the 2022 T20 World Cup. Moreover, the conditions in Australia will give Jasprit Bumrah and Co. much to smile about.
Threats – The Australian pitches will also aid the pace attack of the other two teams in India’s group – South Africa and Pakistan. The likes of Shaheen Afridi and Kagiso Rabada have enjoyed success against India in the past. India would need to guard against batting collapses of the kind that they suffered against Pakistan in their opening encounter of the 2021 World Cup.
