The Indian cricket team could not impress much in the ICC T20 World Cup last year. They played five matches and registered three big wins but lost the two crucial games against the New Zealand cricket team and the Pakistan team. The two losses led to an early exit from the mega event.

To ensure that the players have enough match practice ahead of IPL 2022, the Indian team will play 18 matches in the shortest format of the game. Most importantly, the selectors and the team management will look to select around 18-20 players who play these games. From that group, they can probably finalize the squad of 15.

Soon after the 5-match T20I series, the Indian cricket team will board a flight to England. In England, Team India will play one Test, three ODIs and three T20I matches.
