The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the 2022 T20 World Cup squad on Monday, naming Rohit Sharma as the captain and KL Rahul as his deputy.

Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel returned to the setup after being out for quite a while due to injuries. However, India will miss the services of all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja after he injured his right knee during the recently concluded Asia Cup.

Four players – Mohammed Shami, Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar, and Ravi Bishnoi have been kept on standby.

Veteran wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik has also been drafted into the squad and his reaction to the selection was priceless.

We take a look at some interesting reactions as the squad was largely on expected lines, but a few fans were unhappy with the exclusion of Sanju Samson and Mohammad Shami.
