T20 World Cup 2022: The all-awaited T20 tournament that everyone is waiting for will host its first match on October 16 (Thursday) between Sri Lanka and Namibia at the Simonds Stadium, Geelong. This T20 World Cup will be played in two parts. The first round will have eight teams, including Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Zimbabwe, who will play to find a place in the “Super 12”.

Top four teams from the first round will qualify and will play with the other eight teams in the next round. Moreover, top Asian teams that played in the recently concluded Asia Cup in the UAE will also play in the competition. And we have already seen how dangrous Asian teams can be in the competition.

Asia Cup winners Sri Lanka can be effective on their day, while India and Pakistan are the two front-runners among the other top teams. Then, Afghanistan and Bangladesh can be as dangerous as each other when it comes to performing on a given day. So we have picked up the top players from Asia to create a perfect playing XI on the basis of current form. This team can surely win the tournament.

1. Openers of the team

Picking an opener was very tough, but we have gone for both Pakistani opener Mohammad Rizwan and India’s opener KL Rahul to open the innings for the team. Both will complement each other and will play better in the Australian conditions for.

2. Nos 3 and 4 in the batting

There are not many who can match the intensity of Virat Kohli on the field, and with his form back, he is a most valuable asset for any team. Thus, we have picked Virat Kohli to play at No. 3 and then we have picked the arguably best batter as per the current form to play at No. 4. It is none other than India’s “Mr. 360”, Suryakumar Yadav, who is just hitting the ball the best in the world right now.

3. Some best All-rounders available

Now we need those players who are doing well with both the bat and bowl. So we have picked Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan at No. 5, followed by India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya at No. 6 in the line-up. Both are excellent in both departments. Then, we have gone for Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka, who has shown good form of late and is a pace-bowling all-rounder. Well, with him, we have picked up Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga at No. 8 to make this team stronger.

4. Bowlers for the team

Speaking of the bowling line-up, we need some of the best T20 specialists, so we have to pick two pacers and one spinner. Rashid Khan is our pick from Afghanistan, who can single-handedly win any game against any opposition. Then, we have gone for Pakistani speedster Haris Rauf, who is in tremendous form and has played in Australia in the BBL, so he knows the conditions well. However, as another pacer, we have picked Shaheen Afridi as reports confirmed that he is fit to play in the tournament.
