Cricket is truly back after a long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw all the sporting activities worldwide got suspended for a long number of weeks and months.
But finally, cricket is back as the fans are set to experience some cracker of cricket action in the coming months, starting with the Indian Premier League (IPL) and then the T20 World Cup.
Talking of T20 World Cup, former Sri Lankan batsman and recently concluded The Hundred's Southern Brave's head coach Mahela Jayawardene had made a statement that a particular fast bowler from his team doesn't get picked for the T20 World Cup, then he will be disappointed.
With only a few weeks left for the squad announcement for the T20 World Cup, New Zealand and Australia are the only teams to announce the T20 World Cup squad so far; many selectors are going through a headache of whom to pick whom to leave out.
According to ESPNCricinfo, Southern Brave's head coach, the Sri Lankan legend Mahela Jayawardene, left-arm pacer Tymal Mills should be part of the plane taking the English players to UAE for the World Cup, and if he is not, then he will be very disappointed.

Tymal Mills was one of the best performing players with the ball for Southern Brave. The English left-arm pacer ended 'The Hundred' campaign with eight wickets in 10 matches and was very economical in the eliminator and the final, picking up three wickets for eight runs in 16 balls in the eliminator while one wicket for just nine runs in 20 balls in the final.
Southern Brave won the inaugural 'The Hundred' men's competition by beating Birmingham Phoenix in the final that was played on the 21st of August.
