In what can be a massive blow to Team India’s T20 World Cup hopes, lead pacer Jasprit Bumrah is said to have been ruled out of the ICC event, which will be played in Australia from October 16 to November 13. The 28-year-old was ruled out of the opening T20I against South Africa in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday (September 28).
The Women's Asia Cup 2022 is scheduled to kick start on October 1 and wrap up by October 15. A total of seven teams will be combating in the round-robin format to claim the title. Bangladesh is hosting the multi-nation Asian event and all the matches will be played at the Sylhet Outer Cricket Stadium and Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma admitted that the wicket in Thiruvananthapuram for the opening T20I of the three-match series against South Africa was a rather tricky one. He, however, added that players also get to learn a lot by playing on such challenging wickets.
Team India has a twin reason to celebrate Sunday night. Chasing a target of 187 in the third and final T20I against World Champions Australia, the skipper Rohit Sharma-led side claimed a thrilling win by 6 wickets with gigantic contributions of Virat Kohli and Surya Kumar Yadav at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. With the 2-1 bilateral series victory, the team registered a milestone achievement of the most number of T20I wins in 2022.
