India open their T20 World Cup 2022 mission with a game against most despised rivals Pakistan on 23 October at the MCG.
Previous cricketer Suresh Raina is of the assessment that India will win the T20 World Cup 2022 assuming they secure their most memorable match of the competition against main opponents Pakistan. India open their mission against main adversaries Pakistan on 23 October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
In the 2021 T20 World Cup, India lost to Pakistan by 10 wickets in their most memorable match and were subsequently unloaded out of the competition in the gathering stage.
“Certainly, in the event that we dominate the initial match against Pakistan, we will win the World Cup,” previous India player Raina told NDTV.
“The group is doing great at the present time. (Mohammed) Shami has supplanted (Jasprit) Bumrah, it will give the side a touch of X-factor. We have Arshdeep Singh, Suryakumar Yadav. Everybody is in great structure, Virat Kohli is looking great. Rohit Sharma is an excellent pioneer, on the off chance that we dominate the primary game, it will establish a decent vibe for us. Everybody in the nation is petitioning God for themselves and I truly believe that they should win the World Cup.”
Shami was at first not a piece of the T20 World Cup crew and was just chosen later because of a back physical issue to Jasprit Bumrah. Shami, who himself has not played cricket for some time because of Coronavirus and related sickness, returned in style in India’s warmup game against Australia on Monday.
Astonishing the last of the match, likewise his first of the game, Shami effectively shielded 10 runs and took three wickets.
Discussing Shami’s expansion, Raina expressed that while nobody can supplant Bumrah, India have picked the “most ideal choice” accessible.
“I wouldn’t call him an ideal substitution since you can’t supplant Jasprit Bumrah or Ravindra Jadeja. They have played reliably for India and they have given exhibitions. In any case, the most ideal choice you had, you have chosen him. Shami has given great exhibitions, he has been in great structure. BCCI have done all around well in sending the group to Australia 15 days before the competition. The grounds are huge, by and large I think the readiness has been great. We should play courageous cricket and show great purpose,” said Raina.
