World's best XI to not feature in T20 WC 2022 - Missing/Injured


Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow

English Opener Jason Roy missed the last bus to Australia after failing to impress the side over his low-profile form for the national side for a few months, while Bairstow missed a well-deserved chance after a leg injury.

Sanju Samson

Explosive hitter batting option up the order or towards the finish, Sanju Samson can do it all. The RR captain in IPL might not have made it to the final side, but his batting prowess is the best among the current reserved lineup.

Rassie Van Der Dussen

The dependable protea batting option at the middle and among the best in the short format of the game Rassie Van Der Dussen misses out after suffering a finger injury forcing SA Cricket to look up to others.

Shimron Hetmyer

One of the most bizarre missing features in the ICC events, Shimron Hetmyer missed his rescheduled flight to Australia leading to his miss after which Samrah Brooks replaces him on the WI side.

Andre Russel

The batman and West Indian powerhouse Russel might be a globally recognized feature in the T20 leagues, however, his humble contribution to WI cricket pushed the Caribbean cricket board to look for other options.

Dwaine Pretorius

Dwaine Pretorius, SA all-rounder would have featured in the top XI had he won’t go through the major pinch against India in the T20I match. 6 feet 6 Marco Jansen replaces him on the protea side.

Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja

Two among India’s playing XI, the duo adds a huge value to the side and are missing due to injury, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian side might have found a replacement but their absence will surely be felt in Australia.

Dushmantha Chameera

Sri Lankan premier short format bowler Dushmantha Chameera suffered a calf injury back in August that ruled him out of Asia Cup hoping to return before the T20 WC, although failed to recover with Madhusudan called in his place.

Jofra Archer

The Talismanic lethal English bowler Jofra Archer holds the power of testing the might of any batting lineup also missed from the English side after he suffered a back injury right ahead of the Test season.
