They haven’t played since 2004 when they made it to the group stages of the Champions Trophy. Monank Patel, Aaron Jones, and Steven Taylor will all be very important at the plate.

Canada

Another first timer, Canada will also be going to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Canada, on the other hand, is used to being on the big stage. They have played in the 50-Over World Cup four times. It was in 1979 and then in 2003, 2007, and 2011.

At the upcoming event, Canada’s captain will be the experienced Saad Bin Zafar. In addition, the team has only four players under the age of 30.

It was a surprise that hitter Kanwarpal Tathgur, who has only played six List-A games, was put on the team. 

Moreover, bowler Jeremy Gordon and all-rounder Junaid Siddiqui, who is 39 years old, to Canada’s team makes it even stronger.

India

India really wants to break their string of almost-wins in world events. In recent ICC Men’s T20 World Cup , they have been so close but failed at the last step.

India is now ready to win the title again after losing it in the first tournament in 2007. They have a strong team that is ready to go.

The team has a strong top order with players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav. Rohit Sharma, who is starting his second T20 World Cup as captain, leads the team with experience.

Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson are both in great form right now. Hence, this makes it hard for Rohit and the team management to choose a wicket-keeper for the World Cup.

Players like Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, and Shivam Dube make the team stronger and more flexible. 

Bowling has a lot of great players, like Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, and others. Moreover, making for a well-rounded team.

Pakistan

Pakistan and India have both come very close to winning an ICC title. 

In the last two T20 World Cups, they made it to the semi-finals and final, but failed to win either time.

Babar Azam takes Pakistan into the next tournament with a strong desire to end their trophy drought. They are driven by the disappointment of those close calls.

Pakistan’s opening order has been led by Babar and Mohammad Rizwan for years. Saim Ayub, Fakhar Zaman, and Iftikhar Ahmed will help them.

On top of that, Pakistan has a lot of spin bowlers as well, including Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, and Abrar Ahmed.

Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Amir, and Abbas Afridi make up an impressive pace group for the green team, which is led by Shaheen Afridi.

Ireland

Ireland has won their spot in this year’s T20 World Cup for the eighth year in a row. Therefore, this shows how the country’s cricketing has changed over the years.

Ireland will have a new captain going into the event. Andrew Balbirnie, a veteran batter, will no longer be in charge of the team; Paul Stirling will take over from him.

The batting order is built around the dynamic starting pair of the current captain and the former captain. 

Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Ross Adair, and Curtis Campher round out the lineup.

The bowling attack is led by Mark Adair and Josh Little, with Graham Hume, Campher, Barry McCarthy, and Craig Young also bowling fast. 

Ben White and Gareth Delany, on the other hand, bowl spin, giving the team a fair and varied set of bowling weapons.
