Indian Cricket Team are currently in Australia, preparing for the T20 World Cup 2022. They arrived early in the country and it’s fair to say that they looked prepared because they had good quality net sessions and also played two additional practice games.

They recently defeat Australia in the warmup game and will next lock horns against New Zealand in the practice game on 19th November in Gabba. The Rohit Sharma-led side has a pretty balanced squad and they will be heading into the tournament with great confidence.

Since the last T20 World Cup, they haven’t lost a single bilateral series and have been at the top of their game. They have had an ideal preparation and if they play to their potential along with holding their nerves in the pressure situation, they can be the favourite to win the trophy.

Suresh Raina while speaking to NDTV talked about the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. He said that if India manages to win against Pakistan, they can also win the tournament.
