After the heartbreaking exit for India in the T20 World Cup 2022 in the semi-final, a lot of changes are expected to take place in the Indian team. Some of the senior cricketers are likely to receive a snub at least from the T20 squad while youngsters will be expected to be inculcated into the side. The style of play India has adopted in T20 cricket hasn’t worked for a long time now.
With a couple of years remaining for the next T20 World Cup, there will be a lot of thought processes into trying out the youngsters who will be looking to play fearlessly as that approach India lacked in the semi-final loss. Notably, it has been nine years since India last won the Champions Trophy in 2013 and the hunt for an ICC trophy continues.
According to the sources of NDTV, one of their sources said, “India is all set to implement changes in the next two years to bring about a massive overhaul for the next T20 World Cup, which will take place in the Americas in 2024.”
Coming to the veterans, Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Shami might not be considered the future for the T20 quad for long while 37-year-old Dinesh Karthik might miss out on future plans on the Indian side. Apart from the three, Bhuvneshwar Kumar who has been picked for the New Zealand tour is on the radar of BCCI, and might also receive a snub in near future.
As for the three big names of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul are concerned, a lot of question marks are raised and their future can be termed under threat as well. Whether they make the way for youngsters remains to be seen, however, a call on them is expected to be taken soon and it signifies that India will be undergoing a huge overhaul ahead of the next T20 World Cup to be held in the USA and the Caribbean.
