India is one of the powerhouses of world cricket at the moment. Sometimes, cricketers do not get too many chances in India and look for opportunities elsewhere. Also, there is the case of Indian migrants rising through the ranks in other nations.

On that note, here, we take a look at the list of 10 Indian-born cricketers who will represent other nations in the 2022 T20 World Cup.

Having contributed so many cricketers to other nations, it is natural that India is one of the strongest teams in the event. However, the team is having a few issues of its own.
Performance in big events has been disappointing in recent years. On top of this, the Indian Team will miss the services of Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja. Both were critical to India’s chances and the men in blue will have a tough time replacing them with suitable resources in the squad.
