T20I World Cup 2022: No IPL Star Pacers in the Team? Former Pacer Ashish Nehra Predicts the Pace Bowlers
T20I World Cup 2022: Team India is on a path to search for the right combination for the upcoming T20I World Cup in Australia. That’s the reason skipper Rohit Sharma is seen experimenting with the team in almost every match. India just doesn’t need a good and settled batting group for the team. However, the team is also looking to strengthen their pack battery as well. Looking for the complete IPL team list for the 2022 Season? Check here on our site.
On the other hand, IPL has given many promising pace bowlers to the Indian team in recent years. But the real question will be, who will be those who can help India win the ICC title? Former pace bowler Ashish Nehra has expressed his view on the current pace attack of the Indian team.

Ashish Nehra has picked four pace bowlers who should be with the team in the upcoming T20I World Cup. Talking to the Cricbuzz, former pacers named Jaspreet Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Siraj and Prasidh Krishna for the World Cup squad. The T20I series between India and West Indies is underway, and India has given rest to their premium bowlers, Bumrah and Shami.
Instead of that, the team is playing with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Avesh Khan, and Harshal Patel as their main fast bowlers.
Talking further, Nehra said that he will pick only Siraj from the current team in the World Cup. He said,
“The World Cup is very far away. If the squad for the World Cup is to be announced tomorrow. There is only one pace bowler from this team who will make it, and that is Siraj. My choice for the World Cup would be Siraj, Bumrah, Shami and Prasidh Krishna. We have seen what he can do, and after these four, comes Deepak Chahar.”
Former pacer also lauded Rohit Sharma, who is backing Bhuvneshwar Kumar, even though he is not showing good form. He said that the skipper is backing the veteran pacer because he is the most experienced bowler on the team. And it will be totally up to Rohit whether he wants any change or not in the playing XI.
Either Bhuvneshwar or Deepak Chahar should be given the chance – Parthiv Patel
The former wicket-keeper batsman also shared his view on the current bowling attack of the Indian team. Parthiv Patel pointed out that Bhuvneshwar and Deepak Chahar are similar in the skill-set they bring to the game. So the team should go with only one of them. Instead of choosing those two, India can opt to have Siraj or Avesh Khan in the team. Parthiv concluded,
“Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar are similar kinds of bowlers. So, you can try to play either one of Siraj or Avesh Khan for variety. So, this can be tried out since we are already exploring the best combination for the World Cup,”
India will take on West Indies in the second T20I match at Eden Gardens on February 18.
