T20 World Cup: Best Dropped (Injured) XI of T20 World Cup 2022

T20 World Cup 2022: The biggest T20 event is about to start in just a few days’ time. The 8th edition of the T20 World Cup will start in Australia on October 16. This competition will host 16 teams from across the globe playing against each other to win the title of T20 World Champions. All 16 teams have announced their squads, and the last date to make any changes to their squad is October 15.

But one thing to notice is that there have been some big names or T20 stars who will miss the upcoming tournament due to injury or form. That is a big surprise and a setback for the teams. Thus, we have to make the best playing XI of those players who are not part of the T20 World Cup 2022 due to injury or form.

1. Best Openers for the team

For the opening slots, we have picked two of the most dangerous openers in the world, England’s Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy. Bairstow was ruled out due to his leg injury, but before that he was in the form of his life and scored a few centuries in test cricket. On the other hand, Roy was dropped from the team. These two make a destructive opening pair for England as well.

2. Middle-order

Well, for the middle-order, we have picked some really good names, who are not part of the T20 World Cup, whether due to injury or bad luck. For No.3, we have picked South Africa’s star batter, Rassie van der Dussen, who has been incredible for his country. For Nos. 4, 5, and 6, India’s Sanju Samson, Pakistan’s veteran Shoaib Malik and West Indies’ Shimron Hetmyer will surely make an explosive batting line-up.

3. All-rounders

In T20 cricket, the role of an all-rounder is the most important because he can give the team an all-important balance in both departments. So, we have picked some big names who can win matches with both bat and ball. We have picked three players who are not part of the T20 WC.

It features West Indian all-rounder, Andre Russell, as well as South African all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius and star Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. Thus, this list has two pace-bowling all-rounders and one spin all-rounder.

4. Bowlers for T20 World Cup

Now, if we have to pick the two best T20 bowlers in the world, they will certainly be among the top. These two pacers are not part of the T20 WC because both are injured. We are talking about India’s Jasprit Bumrah and England’s Jofra Archer. These two are the best bowlers in the shorter format and can demolish any batting lineup.
