After India’s shocking exit from the group stage of the ICC T20 World Cup, a lot of changes will be seen in the team’s management.
Before the start of the tournament Team India were considered as title contenders and were the favorites to win the tournament.
But after two back-to-back losses against Pakistan and New Zealand, Team India’s hopes of making it to the semi-finals seemed unlikely.
With the conclusion of the tournament, Virat Kohli’s reign as the captain of the shortest format of the game ends without any ICC trophy.
Ravi Shastri’s tenure as the head coach also ends here. Former Indian batsmen Rahul Dravid will take over Ravi Shastri’s position.
India are scheduled to play a home series against New Zealand. The squad is yet to be announced but it is expected that senior Indian players will likely be rested for the upcoming series.
Between November 2021 and July 2022, Team India will play six series. Of these, four will be at home while two will be away. In total India will play 6 Tests, 9 ODIs and 21 T20Is.
The Men in Blue will host New Zealand, West Indies, Sri Lanka and South Africa. Team India will also visit England and South Africa. The Indian Premier League (IPL) will be also played in the April-May window. The 2022 edition of IPL will see the addition of two new teams with a total of 74 fixtures.
