“Out of Form” Playing XI of T20 World Cup 2022

T20 World Cup 2022: The biggest cricket event of 2022 will get underway on October 16, with a match between Sri Lanka and Namibia. The best 16 teams in the world will feature in the competition, and only one team will be crowned as the World Champions. Australia won the last T20 World Cup in the UAE in 2021 and they will defend their World T20 title at home.

It will be a blockbuster of a tournament when top teams compete. Every team has chosen their best set of players for the upcoming event, but there are still a few players in every team who are not in good form. Thus, here we have made a perfect playing XI of those players who are “out of form”. This team has those players who are part of the upcoming T20 World Cup but aren’t performing as per expectations.

1. Openers – Martin Guptill and Temba Bavuma

There are a few candidates for the opening slot for the “out of form XI”, but two of the less performing are South African skipper Temba Bavuma, who failed miserably in India in the white ball series, and another one is New Zealand’s opener Martin Guptill, who is going through a rough patch currently across three formats.

2. Batting Order (No. 3 to 7)

There are some really good middle order batsmen in the competition. But here we are talking about those players who are out of form. So we have gone for West Indian captain Nicholas Pooran at No. 3 because he hasn’t done anything great. Then, we have picked a star all-rounder from Australia, Glenn Maxwell, who has scored less than 10 runs in the last four T20Is.

Well, for the No. 5 spot, we have picked English explosive batter Liam Livingstone, who played his last T20I for England against India and didn’t do much. For the finisher jobs for Nos. 5 and 6, we have picked the most talked about players from Pakistan, Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali, who have played at least 20 matches each but haven’t had a single fifty in T20Is and are struggling with their form at the moment.

3. Bowlers for the team

We want this team to concede runs freely, so we also have those bowlers who have been doing this in their recent matches. So firstly, we have gone for India’s pacer, Harshal Patel, who is leaking runs at over 10 runs per over. Then for the spinning department, this job can be done by South African spinner Tabraiz Shamsi, who hasn’t had a good outing recently. The next two pacers will be England’s Chris Jordan and South African Anrich Nortje. These two have also been having some rough times recently.
