Team India had a rather disappointing year in 2022; it began with India’s Test series defeat against South Africa, following which Virat Kohli stepped down as captain in the longest format, and while India’s bilateral series performances remained strong as ever, they failed to translate that form in global events. At the 2022 T20 World Cup, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian squad was defeated by eventual champions England by a 10-wicket margin in the semi-finals.

Due to injuries and rest for senior players, the year saw a number of debuts and multiple captains in the side across formats; and as the year ended, Hardik Pandya was given the leadership in T20Is for the series against Sri Lanka, with all of the side’s top-3 – KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli – missing from the squad for the shortest format. India did conclude 2022 on a high note at the World Test Championship, securing second place in the table with a 2-0 series triumph over Bangladesh. However, the new year brings new obstacles, and the team will strive to maintain its shape for the future challenges.
