When it comes to appraising a player’s current form and player selection for the T20 World Cup, the Indian Premier League (IPL) is the most influential element. Since its debut in 2008, the IPL has produced a lot of players who have not only represented their country but also gone on to achieve success.

Even though the T20 World Cup 2022 is almost six months away, it goes without saying that the IPL 2022 will play a significant role in identifying the players who will be challenged over the following 4-5 months leading up to the ultimate showdown in October. While regular international players will be graded on their international performance, new and rising superstars will be judged on their IPL performance.

We may have a prospective list of players to test in the next months based on the IPL 2022, but we can still identify a list of the 10 members who would constitute Team India’s strongest roster for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. The ranking is compiled based on players’ ability and their accomplishments in recent years at both the international and IPL levels.

Rohit Sharma will be leading the Indian team and will hope to get his team off to a solid start with the bat. This is his first T20 World Cup as a captain and the Mumbai-born cricketer will leave no stones unturned to make it memorable.

While Rohit Sharma’s present form in the ongoing IPL 2022 has not been satisfactory, the 33-year-old is a different beast when it comes to playing for the country. With pace and bounce on offer, Rohit will fancy his chances against the new ball and once he gets going, there are not many who can stop him.

Rohit has played 125 Twenty20 Internationals for India, scoring 3313 runs at an average of 32.48. The right-handed batter has a remarkable strike rate of nearly 140. While playing for India in the shortest version of the game, the Indian skipper has 26 fifties and four centuries to his credit and will hope to add more to his tally when they travel to Australia later this year.
