Five players to watch out for at the 2022 World T20

Cricket is a team game but many matches are won by stunning individual performances. At the forthcoming World Cup in Australia, we will see the best T20 players in the sport compete with a view to lifting a prestigious trophy.

Here we will look at five players who can decide the destiny of that World Cup. Some will be established names while others may be unfamiliar to those who follow cricket less closely.

India’s Virat Kohli ended his long wait for a 71st international century as he passed three figures at the Asia Cup. It had been almost three years since his previous ton and it shows that the former captain is in good form coming into the tournament.

India are the favourites to win the World Cup when it starts in Australia on October 15th. They are strong in all departments, but the batting will be much more effective now that Virat Kohli has rediscovered his touch.

Alex Hales: England

After three years in the international wilderness, England have recalled Alex Hales to the squad for the T20 World Cup and their tour of Pakistan which begins in September. Hales was the first England batter to score a century in a T20 international, and he claims he is even better than the player he was when he last played for his country.

England are second favourites for the win, according to the top online betting sites as sourced by The odds are in but there is still time for some adjustments before the first ball is delivered.

Alex Hales can help England at this year’s tournament but there are plenty of other players looking to guide their teams to glory.

Rovman Powell: West Indies

The West Indies are the only team in history to have won the T20 World Cup twice but they are given little chance of making it a hat-trick in 2022. Some of the familiar squad faces have retired, but there are some impressive youngsters coming through.

Against England in Barbados earlier this year, Rovman Powell bludgeoned 107 from just 53 balls. Similar striking in Australia would make him a star of the tournament.

Tim David: Australia

Tim David is proving his worth across a number of domestic leagues and he can certainly be an asset to Australia at the T20 World Cup. His raw strength in the death overs is exactly what Australia has been looking for in recent years and he could prove to be a valuable asset if the top order comes unstuck.

Australia are joint second favourites to win the trophy this year. They are the defending champions and, as the host country, they are many pundits’ choice for the trophy. This is a good squad with great depth in all departments, but Tim David is certainly the X-factor and could have a crucial role to play.

Tristan Stubbs: South Africa

Blessed with swashbuckling striking ability, Tristan Stubbs is one of the finest players of his generation. The youngster has already been picked up by a number of domestic franchises across the globe and has performed credibly in his limited opportunities for South Africa in the shortest format of the game.

With comparatively larger boundaries awaiting teams in the mega event, Stubbs may have to shoulder significant responsibility if South Africa is to progress in the tournament.
