BCCI to fire some cricketers after India’s poor campaign in T20 World Cup 2022

The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is utterly disappointed with the team’s performance in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 despite having big names in the squad. Specifically, India’s approach against England in the semifinal was alarming since the opposition managed to win by ten wickets.

Finding it as a red flag for the future, the BCCI has decided to formulate the squad, especially in the shortest format, to see fruitful results in the forthcoming encounters. The board is looking to make massive changes within a two-year span to see a new team to tackle in the upcoming crucial games.

The reports state that the positions of senior cricketers Mohammad Shami and Ravichandran Ashwin are in danger. Both are unlikely to be in BCCI’s future plans for India’s T20I cricket. Apart from them, a few more might find themselves in hot water.

Notably, India’s struggle to lift an ICC trophy continues as they last could do so under MS Dhoni’s captaincy in 2013. They have come across lashes and criticism for always failing on big occasions, as losing against England in World Cup 2022 has not been the first time in ages.

With the conclusion of World Cup 2022, the tenure of Dinesh Karthik, too, might come to an end. Questions have also been raised on experience bowler Bhuvneswar Kumar, who has not been much appealing throughout the tournament. Although he is part of the upcoming series against New Zealand, the board might not consider him for further endeavours.

According to a news agency PTI, the BCCI will leave the retirement decision on Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, while the rest may have to bid farewell to the format. As told by a BCCI official, the board will not ask anyone to retire, including Kohli and Sharma; it is just that many of them will not be considered for the shortest format.

Moreover, the BCCI might build up a new T20I team, considering Hardik Pandya for a long-term captaincy role.

“The BCCI never asks anyone to retire. It is an individual decision. But yes, with just a handful of T20Is scheduled in 2023, most of the seniors will concentrate on ODIs and Test matches in that cycle,”

“You don’t need to announce retirement if you don’t want to. You will not see most of the seniors playing T20 next year,”
