Amidst the Corona epidemic, cricket matches were conducted carefully in 2021, in which Bio-bubble and Quarantine played an important role. At the same time, in 2021 itself, Australia won the T20 World Cup and New Zealand won the Test Championship.

There are two big tournaments to be held in the initial months of 2022. The first of them will host the West Indies Under-19 Cricket World Cup in January, in which 2020 season winners Bangladesh are placed in Group A along with England, Canada and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Last time runners-up India are in Group C along with Ireland, South Africa and Uganda. After winning the Under-19 Asia Cup in Dubai, Yash Dhull’s team will look to do well in the tournament.

The T20 World Cup is to be held in Australia almost ten months after the Under-19 World Cup. In this World Cup, Aaron Finch’s team will go to defend their title. England, on the other hand, will look to win the T20 World Cup for the second time, while India will look to do better after a disappointing campaign last season. Before that, the Indian team would like to win the first Test series on South African soil.

India, leading 1-0 after a win at Centurion, will look to put up winning performances in Johannesburg and Cape Town. After the three-match series, KL Rahul will be the captain in ODIs, while Jasprit Bumrah will be seen in the role of vice-captain.

This year India will play a white ball series and two Test matches against the West Indies. After which the team has to play three T20 matches against Sri Lanka at home. Also, if all goes well, Afghanistan can be seen facing India for the first time in an ODI series.

This is to be followed by the Indian Premier League (IPL), in which two new teams Lucknow and Ahmedabad have been included, but due to Covid-19 in May 2021, the second phase of IPL was shifted to UAE. With Omicron cases rising in India, a good plan is needed to host the IPL.

After the IPL, the Indian cricket team has to face another hectic schedule. After this India will host South Africa on its soil and then India will fly to England, where, India will play three ODIs and T20Is along with playing the rescheduled fifth Test at Edgbaston. This will be followed by India’s tour of the West Indies, the Asia Cup in Pakistan, Australia and Sri Lanka are likely to come here later in the year.

Overall, 2022 will be a very busy year for cricket and if the impact of Covid-19 subsides, it will be overall entertainment for cricket lovers.
