T20 World Cup 2024: India playing 11 for the game against Ireland prediction


The T20 World Cup 2024 is here and the focus is on the Indian Cricket Team. The Men in Blue will be one of the hot favourites to win the tournament but for that, they need to bring out their A game and play fearlessly. It will be a great opportunity for them to end the drought of the ICC title, which they last won in 2013.  

India will open their ICC T20 World Cup 2024 campaign on 5th June against Ireland.   They will be playing the game at the Nassau County cricket stadium. They played a warmup game against Bangladesh and had a sensational outing with the bat and ball. They would be hoping to replicate the same in their first game of the tournament.

As India’s first game in the T20 World Cup 2024 is around the corner, their combination has kept many speculating about it. There’s a no-brainer that skipper Rohit Sharma will be there at the top, opening the batting. He has been in decent touch and would be keen to make an impact. 

The question remains who will open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma? In the warmup game, Sanju Samson came to open which depicts that Yashasvi Jaiswal might not be the starter in the team. Therefore, we might see Virat Kohli opening the batting. 

He looked in terrific touch in the IPL while opening the batting and his being at the top might allow India to play both Hardik Pandya and Shivam Dube in the mix. They both played in the warmup game and contributed with bat as well as ball, allowing India to have extra options with the ball.

Rishabh Pant might take the No.3 role in the team. The keeper-batter played a sensational innings in the warmup game of the T20 World Cup 2024 against Bangladesh. He slammed a magnificent half-century while batting at 3 and with Kohli at the top, he is likely to the role. 

Suryakumar Yadav will be taking the No.4 spot and along with him, it is expected that Shivam Dube and Hardik Pandya will be there in the middle as all-rounders along with Ravindra Jadeja, who will also be one of the spinners.

Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are likely to be the two leg-spinners in the team. With conditions in New York being slow, India is likely to field two pacers in the team. Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh are expected to be two seamers in the team.
