India Announced the Squad for the T20 World Cup 2024

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announces the 15-player squad that will represent the Indian team in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. Leading the charge is the dynamic and experienced Rohit Sharma, who will captain the team in their quest for glory on the global stage.

India Squad and Players List: T20 World Cup 2024

Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya (vc), Rishabh Pant (wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd. Siraj

  • Reserves: Shubman Gill, Rinku Singh, Khaleel Ahmed and Avesh Khan

One of the most talked-about aspects of the squad announcement was the selection of wicketkeepers. Amidst stiff competition, the BCCI has entrusted the gloves to Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson. Pant’s return to international cricket after recovering from a near-fatal accident in December 2022 adds a touch of resilience and determination to the squad.

India’s bowling lineup boasts a formidable combination of spin and pace. The spin department will be led by stalwarts Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal, offering a variety of options to bamboozle opposition batsmen. Meanwhile, the pace battery will be spearheaded by the ever-reliable Jasprit Bumrah, with able support from Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, and vice-captain Hardik Pandya.

India’s batting lineup is a force to be reckoned with, with the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav expected to anchor the top order alongside captain Rohit Sharma. Their consistency and ability to score runs under pressure make them invaluable assets to the team’s campaign.

While the squad features several expected names, there are also a few surprises and omissions. Shubman Gill and Rinku Singh find themselves among the reserves, alongside pacers Khaleel Ahmed and Avesh Khan. However, the absence of KL Rahul, a stalwart in India’s previous T20 World Cup campaigns, raises eyebrows and adds intrigue to the squad selection.

Conclusion

India finds themselves in Group A of the tournament, alongside traditional rivals Pakistan, as well as Ireland, Canada, and co-hosts USA. Their campaign kicks off with a highly anticipated clash against Ireland on 5th June at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, followed by what promises to be an electrifying encounter against arch-rivals Pakistan.
