T20 World Cup: 3 players, who started their career for different country and will play for another country in 2022 T20 WC 

T20 World Cup 2022: It is always a dream for a player to represent his country at the highest level. But now we often see a few players changing their country and representing other teams. One of the most successful examples of this was the 2019 ODI World Cup winning captain, Eoin Morgan, who started his career for Ireland and played in the 2011 World Cup for Ireland.

But later, he changed his nation and went on to lead England to their maiden ODI World Cup victory. And this upcoming T20 World Cup also features some players who started their career in a different country and will play for another country in the upcoming edition in Australia. So let’s check those three players in this list.

1. Tim David (Australia) – Started his career with Singapore

This T20 World Cup has some really talented young batsmen. One such player is a new recruit from Australia, Tim David, who is known for hitting the ball as hard as anyone. The 6’6″ tall all-rounder initially played for Singapore and has played a handful of games. In fact, David has scored a 17-ball T20I fifty, which is the joint-fifth fastest half-century while playing for Singapore. But now he will play for the defending champions and all eyes will be on him.

2. Mark Chapman (New Zealand) – Hong Kong

Another player on the list is the 28-year-old batter from New Zealand. Chapman was born and brought up in Hong Kong and started his career in Hong Kong. But in search of more options, he moved to New Zealand. He did well for New Zealand on the domestic circuit and got his first call for the national side. And here he is now representing the Black Caps in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

3. David Wiese (Namibia) – South Africa

Another name in this list is the veteran South Africa-born all-rounder David Wiese. The 37-year-old spent the majority of his career representing South Africa at both the domestic and international levels. But he didn’t get many chances with the national team. Thus, he decided to move to associate nations in search of better chances. He played for Namibia in the last T20 WC in the UAE as well, and this time he will play for them in Australia.
