After India’s exit from Asia Cup 2022, the Men in Blue will gear up for the upcoming ICC T20I World Cup 2022 in Australia. BCCI on Monday announced a 15-man squad for India’s World Cup campaign, with Rohit Sharma set to lead the side Down Under.
KL Rahul will deputise for the skipper, whereas Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik have both been included in the team. Ravichandran Ashwin has been included in the roster, while Mohammed Shami has also been named in the standby list of players, after India’s acrimonious exit from Asia Cup.
Avesh Khan, Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad are among some of the notable absentees from the side.
Netizens meanwhile flooded Twitter with reactions, while some were happy for Karthik’s inclusion as ‘Congratulations DK’ trended on Twitter, some users were furious about Sanju Samson’s exclusion. There were some who as usual won the internet with their hilarious memes.
Check how netizens reacted to India’s ICC T20I World Cup 2022 squad:
