Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Shami Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar/ Ravi Bishnoi.
Suryakumar Yadav currently is the front runner in the race for being a middle-order batsman. Surya has been doing exceptionally well in the IPL for the past 3 years.

Hardik Pandya can be picked for T20 World Cup 2022:
Hardik Pandya has to deal with his injuries and pain and has to start bowling. After being chosen as a leader for the Gujarat Titans, Hardik has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. Hardik Pandya is one of the biggest match-winners in the country. He hits the spin bowlers like no other batsmen. He hits the ball a long mile.
Shreyas Iyer has been blooming since 2018. It is a real pity that he was not picked for ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Shreyas can bat from number 3 to number 6 at any position. His flexibility makes his case stronger. There is not a cleaner striker of the spinners other than Shreyas Iyer. Taking the leadership role at KKR will help him grow as a person. He will also be an integral part of the leadership group in absence of senior members.
Yuzi is the most successful Indian T20I bowler. He has picked the most wickets in T20Is for India. He is a very attacking option. Chahal in an interview said, “I feel even if the batsman hits me, he will hit me for 6 sixes but if I don’t attack him if I don’t fight, I miss my chance of picking his wicket.” With this mentality, he is bound to excel. Yuzi has a knack for taking wickets. It was very unfortunate that he wasn’t picked in the 2021 T20 World Cup.
Ravi Bishnoi has made a strong case for himself after excelling in the recently concluded West Indies series. Bishnoi has set his sight on the flight to Australia. He is a similar bowler to Yuzi Chahal but his round-arm action is faster. The batters find it difficult to pick the wrong-un bowled by him. His performance in his debut game speaks volumes of his potential. He is the only Indian to get capped without playing a List A Game.
Rahul Chahar, the tall leg-spinner has to make a comeback to the international circuit. On the Australian pitches that give bounce, a tall leg-spinner can make a difference. He also bowls a bit quicker. Chahar has to perform well in Tata IPL 2022 to make a comeback. He was an integral part of the T20 World Cup 2021 campaign but ever since has been sidelined.
