T20 World Cup 2022: With the end of another edition of T20 World Cup 2021 all teams have now one year before the next world cup 2022 in Australia to prepare themselves. The recent world cup was held in UAE and the major favorites of the league were knocked before the semi-final round.
Sri Lanka and South Africa did play well but had failed to make it to the top four. Where the big favourite like team India was out of the tournament after losing the first two games against New Zealand and Pakistan.
Pakistan had also ended the streak of 29 long years to remain defeated against Men in blue. Under the captaincy of Babar, Azam Pakistan had defeated India by 10 wickets. The big sides like England and Pakistan got knocked out in the semi-final games where the underdogs New Zealand and favorite Australia played the finals.
Surprising that the defending champions West Indies couldn’t enter the semifinals after having high expectations before the start of the tournament. Coach remains the vital part of the team in the success while at the failure he is equally responsible for the lapse in the strategies and planning execution. Before the next edition, four teams will be having new coaches with the team to enter the edition of World Cup 2022.
1. India – Rahul Dravid
After the disastrous end of the tournament team, India will see a new coach in the T20 World Cup 2022 in the form of Rahul Dravid. After the Ravi Shastri exit, many names were in the headlines for the coach profile but Rahul Dravid has been appointed as the head coach with the New Zealand ongoing series.
In the major tournament, team India had managed to win 2 games out of the 5 games and was knocked out due to a bad net run rate. Ravi Shastri as a head coach was the average person for the team who had failed to convert the team success on occasions.
With the new head coach who has been one of the greats of the game the expectations are high for the ICC tournaments and hopefully the team will have more success in his tenure.
2. Australia – Ricky Ponting
After winning the T20 World Cup under head coach Justin Langer. Cricket Australia may have a new head coach before the next world cup in the form of Ricky Ponting according to the reports.
Justin Langer will complete his tenure after the upcoming Ashes series 2021 schedule in December and January. Ponting has great numbers in T20 cricket as a head coach for Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals.
3. Pakistan – Gary Kristen
Before the start of the tournament, Misbah ul-Haq had stepped down from his role as the head coach of the Pakistan team. It may have sent the wrong message about how the team will perform in the tournament.
In the absence of Misbah ul-Haq, former cricketer Saqlain Mushtaq was appointed as the head coach. The rest was history the team had played cricket of high class while beating the best sides of the tournament.
With the recent reports, Gary Kristen is in the race to become the head coach of the Pakistan cricket team before the next T20 World Cup. Gary Kristen remains one of the best coaches in world cricket with the success towards different teams.
4. Sri Lanka – Mahela Jayawardene
Who’s responsible for the downfall of Sri Lanka cricket in the past decade? Management, selectors, and the infrastructure their in the country. To be honest the cricket board has been responsible for such a downfall who prioritizes franchise cricket over international cricket for the national side.
At once, the Sri Lanka cricket team was one of the toughest sides to beat in test cricket but today times they are nowhere in the race and struggling at the bottom of the tally of the team’s ranking.
With the recent reports, the batting consultant of the Sri Lanka team Mahela Jayawardene will be the head coach in the coming times due to his success for franchises like Mumbai Indians. The Sri Lanka cricket team was knocked out of the tournament in the super eight round to end their campaign.
