However, the match was slated to begin at 12:00 pm but the latest update suggests, that after a short inspection, toss will be held at 1:30 pm and match will begin at 2:00 pm.

Shreyas Iyer has been named the vice captain of India, while Shikhar Dhawan will be leading Men In Blue for the ODI series against Proteas as the senior team has left for Australia.

Shikhar Dhawan’s side has the players and the class to register another series win in the ODI format. However, it is not going to be a cakewalk as India lost the last T20 match with the absence of just KL Rahul and Virat Kohli. And now the almost new team will face a strong South African side.

Several cricketers like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik have also shared pictures via their respective Twitter and Instagram Handle. Check out the pictures.

Team India has left two weeks before the start of their T20 World Cup campaign. The team management has given this time for Men In Blue to get acquainted with the Australian conditions well in advance.

The reason behind this is the fact that at least half of the Indian players selected for the T20 World Cup 2022 haven’t yet experience the playing conditions in Australia before. Hence, to help them get used to the bounce there and get some good practice time, Indian team management have decided to travel there in advance.

IND vs PAK: Is Mohammed Shami the replacement for Jasprit Bumrah in T20 World Cup 2022?

India’s worst fear regarding Jasprit Bumrah has finally come true. The ace fast bowler has been ruled out of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 due to injury. Bumrah made a comeback in international cricket after six months in the India vs Australia T20 series.

And later due to the complaints of back niggle, he was ruled out of the bilateral series. But finally after much anticipation, BCCI made the official confirmation last night that pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the mega tournament due to a back injury.

And now reports have been making rounds on the internet that India’s most experienced pacer Mohammed Shami is most likely to replace Bumrah in the 15-member squad for the World Cup while Mohammed Siraj will travel to Australia as a standby. It seems like BCCI had to choose between Deepak Chahar and Shami, when Bumrah eventually failed to make the cut.

But now that Harshal Patel is not having his mojo back with Bumrah struggling with his placement of ball, Harshdeep and Deepak Chahar along with Mohammed Shami will be India’s only hopes.

When it comes to spinner, Ravindra Jadeja is out of the tournament due to his injury and Yuzi Chahal is also out of form. It will be interesting to see if skipper Rohit Sharma will include Ravichandran Ashwin in the playing XI or not. Hardik Pandya’s performance with the bat and ball, both will be crucial for India.

ICC T20 World Cup 2022 will begin on October 16 but India will kickstart their campaign on October 23 against their arch rivals Pakistan in Melbourne.
