India T20 World Cup Squad- Updates and Predictions

India T20 World Cup squad

The excitement for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 can be seen on the internet. India won only one World Cup in 2007 in this format, and for the last 17 years, we have been waiting for the next win. 

However, there is a high chance that India will win this year, as we can see from the hard work of the India T20 World Cup squad. In the 2023 ODI World Cup, India showed their best side by creating a streak of wins. 

Who will be Selected for the T20 World Cup 2024 from India?

Currently, in the ongoing IPL 2024, we can see the strength and dedication of Indian players, including youngsters and experienced cricketers. However, many players have been disappointed with their performances. Also, in this World Cup, the eligibility of players also depends on their recent performance, and the most recent league is the IPL 2024. The confirmed selection is yet to be disclosed. According to the previous and recent performances, we have concluded the top 15 for the T20 World Cup India squad:

1. Rohit Sharma

2. KL Rahul

3. Virat Kohli

4. Surya Kumar Yadav

5. Shivam Dube

6. Rinku Singh

7. Yashasvi Jaiswal

8.  Hardik Pandya

9. Kuldeep Yadav 

10. Ravindra Jadeja

11. Jasprit Bumrah

12. Sanju Samson

13. Ishan Kishan

14. Riyan Parag

15. Axar Patel

So, these 15 can be the India T20 World Cup 2024 Squad. However, this is not a confirmed list, as the confirmed list has yet to be announced. 

Why can these 15 be selected in the upcoming T20 World Cup?

1. Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma is the captain of the Indian Cricket Team. His leadership qualities and experience playing on the ground make him unique. Remember the ODI World Cup 2023, as this man has given everything to the team and made it possible for the finals. Also, he is the face of India’s current cricket team.

Furthermore, his performance has improved incredibly in the last few years, as seen in the IPL and other T20 leagues. He adapts to the pitch easily, whether it is slow or fast. He has an average of above 50 and hit half-centuries and centuries like nothing in this format.

2. KL Rahul

KL Rahul is a key player in the T20 World Cup. He is a great opener and has proven himself in all three formats (ODI, Test, T20). Rahul also has great leadership skills, as he captained the Indian team in the T20 format. Along with being an opener, he is a great wicketkeeper. Having two qualities in a single player will be beneficial for BCCI. 

KL Rahul’s recent performance is good enough to pass the eligibility criteria. The upcoming 2024 T20 World Cup will be held in Australia, and Rahul has a great idea for the Australian pitch. His current performance could influence the selectors to choose him in the upcoming tournament.

3. Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli is globally known as “King Kohli.” He is among the most successful batsmen in the T20 cricket league, with over 10,000 runs. He has also been a key member of the Indian team in multiple world cups, like 2014 and 2016. However, in recent ODI and T20 matches, he has regained his older form. 

Even in the IPL, he has scored many centuries. Similarly, in the ODI World Cup 2023, he has proved why we call him “King Kohli”.” Kohli has remained popular among Indian cricket fans, and they really hope that his king will be selected for the upcoming match.

4. Surya Kumar Yadav

Surya Kumar Yadav is one of the best players for the Indian Cricket Team in the T20 league. Also, his strike rate of 181.38 in T20I shows his ability to score runs in the upcoming tournament. However, he has contributed to the team in all formats, so he is highly likely to get selected by the BCCI.

5. Shivam Dube

Shivam Dube has become a storm in this IPL season. He continuously makes his team win and is still present in the streak. Furthermore, Dube has scored above 350 runs in 9 matches. After his mind-blowing performance in IPL 2024, he has made a place in the selectors’ hearts. So, there might be a possibility that this 30-year-old all-rounder can be part of the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup.

Moreover, Dube can be a key player if he gets selected because of his consistency in IPL 2024 for his team, Chennai Super Kings. Under the leadership of MS Dhoni, Dube has improved his performance a lot, and fans have demanded his selection in the T20 World Cup. Let’s hope he gets selected.

6. Rinku Singh

Rinku Singh’s performance in the T20 league is mindblowing. For the last two IPL seasons, he has been smashing sixes and fours. Also, his incredible performance has stolen the hearts of fans. 

Although he comes from a poor area, he has created an identity and proven himself. 

In the T20 format, Rinku Singh will be the right choice as he is a great batsman. Although the team has not been announced officially, it’s just a prediction that if he gets chosen in the tournament, Team India will get big support.

7. Yashasvi Jaiswal

Yashasvi Jaiswal is a left-handed batsman. He can be a great choice for the top 15 in the T20 World Cup as he already led for the Vijay Hazare Trophy. However, his smashing skills are important in the upcoming World Cup

Additionally, if Jaiswal gets selected, the Indian team’s winning chances will increase because his style of playing cricket matches the selectors’ requirements however, if he is selected, he will contribute to the Indian team’s victory in the World Cup.

When will India T20 World Cup 2024 Squad be Announced?

Only New Zealand and South Africa have announced their team squads. However, BCCI is all set to disclose the team. Earlier, they were about to announce it on April 27th, but then, for some reason, they postponed it. Now, they may officially disclose the Indian team squad, which will include the main players playing for India squad for t20 world cup.

To End Up With

Winning T20 World Cup is important for the Indian team after losing the ODI World Cup 2023. As we all remember, how we lost the ODI World Cup last year after maintaining the winning streak. So, BCCI selectors strictly chose the Indian squad because, for the previous 17 years, India has won a single T20 World Cup. Lastly, we won it in the 2007 T20 World Cup. Fingers are crossed, and let’s hope we get our favourite cricketer selected in the upcoming tournament.
