ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Umran Malik, a fast bowler from Jammu and Kashmir, was not included when the Indian team for the T20 World Cup in Australia in October and November was announced. The World Cup begins on October 16 and ends on November 13. The T20I squads for the upcoming home series against Australia and South Africa were also announced.

Mohammed Shami was put back into India’s T20 World Cup team by the BCCI. He is in the reserves with Shreyas Iyer and Deepak Chahar. Also, there was a lot of talk about how Umran Malik’s raw speed made him a sure pick for the World Cup.
India’s pace attack is made up of Shami
The world got to see how fast he was during the IPL 2022, when he took 22 wickets. That helped him get ready to play his first Twenty20 International for India against Ireland earlier this year. The pacer played in three games during the team’s trip to Ireland, but he hasn’t played since.
There was talk about him playing in the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup. But it turns out that the young man is not on the team. India’s pace attack is made up of Shami, who has returned to the team, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, and Deepak Chahar. This is how people on Twitter felt about Malik not being on India’s T20 World Cup team.

Gavaskar said on Star Sports
Before India’s T20 World Cup team was announced, former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh said that he thought Malik should be on the team. Sunil Gavaskar, who used to be captain of the Indian team, also said something along these lines.
“Sachin Tendulkar was the last Indian player who really got me excited. “After that, I’m looking forward to seeing Umran Malik,” Gavaskar said on Star Sports in June. Malik wasn’t even picked for India’s T20 World Cup team, as it turned out. The pickers didn’t even think about him for the home T20I series against Australia and South Africa.
