It is important for teams to balance out various aspects of the squad. While experience is very much required, youngsters are also needed to improve the dynamics. Having youngsters in a big event like the T20 World Cup will also help the teams in the future. On that note, here, we take a look at the youngest and oldest player of the top 10 Teams at the 2022 T20 World Cup.

India – Arshdeep Singh (23) and Dinesh Karthik (37)

Arshdeep Singh had not made his India debut until recently. However, he is now an important part of the Indian bowling attack. In fact, he might have to lead the unit in the death overs for India. For Dinesh Karthik, though, a comeback was hardly on the cards but he enforced it with his brilliant performances. He is now India’s designated finisher and has an important role to play.

England – Harry Brook (23) and Moeen Ali (35)

Harry Brook has already cemented his place in the XI but could have to move out if Liam Livingstone is fit. Moeen Ali is the oldest member of the squad and will add balance to the squad with his bowling. His performance will be crucial for England’s chances in the event.


South Africa – Tristan Stubbs (22) and David Miller (33)

When it comes to the youngest and oldest player of the teams at the 2022 T20 World Cup, South Africa ticks the boxes very well. While they have their most exciting youngster as the youngest member, in Miller, they have a player who can single-handedly win matches for them.

Pakistan – Naseem Shah (19) and Shan Masood (33)

Naseem Shah made his debut in Asia Cup 2022 and did not take long to leave an impression. He is likely to be a part of the playing XI. Shan Masood is getting chances and will have an important role to play in the middle order for the Asian team.

New Zealand – Finn Allen (23) and Martin Guptill (36)

It is interesting that the Kiwis have their most experienced opener and the most promising opener in the same squad. It will be exciting for the fans to witness their performances.

Australia – Tim David (26) and David Warner (35)

Tim David is the youngest player in the Australian Team. That speaks volumes about the experience that the host nation will have at the 2022 T20 World Cup. While Warner must lead the top order, Tim David will be tasked to finish games for the unit.

West Indies – Obed McCoy (25) and Shamarh Brooks (34)

Obed McCoy is one of the best death bowlers that West Indies has at the moment. If the left-arm pacer is in good form, the bowling of West Indies would improve considerably. Shamarh Brooks was flown in as the replacement for Shimron Hetmyer. He can make use of his recent good form to help his side.

Sri Lanka – Dilshan Madushanka (22) and Jeffrey Vandersay (32)

Dilshan Madushanka has started his career well with a fine performance in the Asia Cup 2022. He is likely to feature in all games for the team. Vandersay is an experienced member and could come into the picture at the upcoming event if he is in good form.
