Over the last few years, India have been a sensational side, to say the least. They were decent in 2021, and had several cherishable moments. From the Gabba heist to the spectacular win at Lord’s, there were several wonderful games for the Indian fans to celebrate.

Having said that, the Indian team would want to erase a few memories. Be it the painful loss in the inaugural World Test Championship (WTC) final, or their poor performance in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, the Kohli-led side did have its fair share of disappointments this year.

Hence, heading into 2022, the Asian giants would want to ensure perfection in their performances on the field. For that to happen, they’d have to make some debatable changes. So what are the new things which need to be done in Indian cricket? Today, we shall be taking a look at 10 changes India should make across all formats in 2022.

10 Changes India should make across all formats in 2022

1. Find a replacement for Ajinkya Rahane

One of the most questionable moves of 2021 was undoubtedly not dropping Ajinkya Rahane. Despite leading India to a series win in Australia earlier this year, there’s nothing significant that the 33-year-old accomplished with the bat.

In the 12 Tests in which he played this year, he managed to score only two fifties. While he was only able to score 411 runs, he was averaging just 19.57. However, his couple of fifties came at crucial junctures for India including the one at Lord’s.

His constant poor form led to Rohit Sharma replacing him as India’s vice-captain in the longest format of the game. As the Mumbai batter is already in his 30s, giving him a long run wouldn’t make much of a sense. Besides, players like Shreyas Iyer and Hanuma Vihari have been superb of late and should be groomed to replace Rahane in the long run.
