Indian cricket is at a crossroads after an unimpressive 2022 and this year will show if it was just a blip or the beginning of a worrying trend.

The team in blue failed to make it to the final of the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup, lost an ODI series in Bangladesh and saw England batsmen wallop them in the one-off Test earlier last year and the T20 World Cup semi-final.

Rohit Sharma is the designated captain of the team but injuries and rotation policy meant that the armband was passed around to almost half the squad.

However, it was not all bad. The tremendous form in T20 cricket of Suryakumar Yadav, the record ODI double ton of Ishan Kishan, the consistent form of Virat Kohli and the rise of fast bowler Umran Malik were positives.

India also has a realistic chance of making it to the final of the World Test Championship in June, which should give them a chance of ending their decade-long wait for a world title.

Then there is the big prize - 50-over World Cup at home. The tournament will be a golden chance for the team to put their recent struggles behind them and re-establish themselves as a leading force in cricket.
