“We are the Kings of bilaterals”, Twitter responds as Team India continues to be number 1 in the ICC T20I ranking
Team India did remarkably well under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy in the game’s shortest format. India has done well in bilateral series ever since the 35-year-old veteran assumed leadership.
The Men in Blue have an excellent winning record in bilateral series because of their skipper, who has led them to victories in the majority of their T20Is. In Australia’s Super 12 in the T20 World Cup, they too did rather well.
Rohit Sharma and company topped the Group 2 points table in the Super 12 after winning four of their five games. In Adelaide’s second semi-final, they were unable to defeat England’s cricket team.
Team India is still number 1 in the ICC T20I ranking
In the critical game, Team India suffered severe beatings at the hands of Jos Buttler and company. They were eliminated from the tournament as a consequence. The supporters had great expectations when India participated in the Asia Cup 2022 competition in the past.
All of their hopes, however, were dashed as they were eliminated from the United Arab Emirates Asia Cup 2022 campaign. In the meantime, Team India continues to hold the top spot in the ICC T20I rankings.
The Men in Blue are currently preparing for the three-match T20I series in New Zealand. The opening T20I is scheduled to take place at Wellington’s Sky Stadium on Friday, November 18.
India T20I squad:
Hardik Pandya (C), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (VC and WK), Sanju Samson (WK), Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, Mohd. Siraj, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik
India continues to be number 1 in the ICC ranking in T20I.

Yes we are bilateral champions, not ICC Champions. Rankings proves it. Bilateral bullying will continue as usual.#crickettwitter https://t.co/toNyX125oi
