INDIA TOUR OF ENGLAND, 2022 by Kaushik Rangarajan • Last updated on Share Tweet Rohit Sharma has been medically cleared to play the first T20I. © Getty It is the reality of the looming World Cup that India are close to being back at full strength for a T20I series that starts two days after a gruelling Test match. Well almost. Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Virat Kohli will be available only from the second game of the series but that aside, the rest of the squad has been hard at work with a sense of urgency that build-ups to bilateral T20Is otherwise lack in non-World Cup years. India, who have played four T20s (vs Ireland, Northamptonshire and Derbyshire) in the last 10 days, have won 13 of the 15 completed T20Is since tumbling out of the group stages of last year's World Cup, most while not fielding their top players.

With Patrik Laine , things are rarely just run-of-the-mill. Where other prominent players tend to sign long-term contracts, Laine’s drifted though plenty of uncertainty. Even Laine’s sense of fashion tends to break the mold . Could the Blue Jackets finally hash out a long-term contract with Laine this summer, or could the 24-year-old experience the turbulence of another trade? Things could swing in drastically different directions for the pending restricted free agent. From the sound of things, we may not get clarity during the week of the 2022 NHL Draft. Blue Jackets indicate that a Laine trade wouldn’t happen around 2022 NHL Draft One key wrinkle for Laine, the Blue Jackets, and his contract/trade situation is the Finnish winger’s salary arbitration rights.
