T20 World Cup 2022: Two-Team Strategy of BCCI
As per the reports, this decision to play three extra overseas series has been taken for the purpose of helping these associate nations and other members generate more revenue for their own boards. The Men in Blue will play a one-off T20I against Ireland while the test team will play the fifth and final postponed test, which was rescheduled due to the COVID outbreak.
And the selection committee is making a pool of around 35 players at a time, to give more chances to the players. The BCCI official said,
“The discussions on bio-bubble breaks have already started. Every player has been communicated about the busy itinerary. They have been given time to think about when they would like to take a break. It’s likely a depleted side will travel to Zimbabwe. Ideally, the Asia Cup will be the right tournament to play the first team, in order to get combinations right before the T20 World Cup.”
The BCCI wants to try as many as possible players in search of the right combination for the World Cup. After the England tour, India will tour West Indies in July and August. They will play three ODIs and three T20Is. The next assignment will be the tour of Zimbabwe. BCCI will send a second-string team for three matches of T20Is and ODIs in September.
And as per the report, the main team will participate in the Asia Cup in UAE in September. However, earlier as well, India had played in two different series at the same time. Last year, India traveled to England for the test series. And another team led by Shikhar Dhawan was in Sri Lanka for the white-ball series.
