First and foremost, BCCI has left some experienced players and went with the young bloods. Nevertheless, India announced a balanced squad for the World Cup. The Squad consists of a group of world-class Bowlers, a group of even better batters, and a couple of all-rounders. Below is the full squad of India for T20 World Cup 2024:

India Squad For T20 World Cup 2024

Rohit Sharma (Captain), Hardik Pandya (Vice Captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Sanju Samson (WK), Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd. Siraj.
Reserves- Shubman Gill, Rinku Singh, Khaleel Ahmed, and Avesh Khan

When you look at the squad, the first thing you notice is that Yashasvi Jaiswal is in the official squad and Shubman Gill is sitting reserve. That clearly indicates that BCCI and Rohit are looking for a Left-right opening combination and most probably, it is going to be skipper Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal.

However, the way Virat Kohli has enjoyed and flourished playing at the may give another thought to the skipper and management of Rohit and Virat at the top but exposing the two most experienced batters of the team right at the top won’t be a good Idea.

Taking Rohit and Jaiswal at the top, Virat will take care of number 3 to continue the momentum forward. Surya Kumar Yadav should be playing at number 4 and we all know the damage that he can do in the middle overs to the opposition team.

There is a clash between Shivam Dube and Sanju Samson for number 5. Sanju Samson is in good form and has been consistent throughout the IPL 2024 for Rajasthan Royals but more power to Shivam Dube who had played in the middle order for his franchise in IPL 2024 and was brutal with the bat in the middle. Sanju Samson is a top-order player and his numbers in the middle order aren’t that convincing.

Rishabh Pant will be playing as a wicketkeeper-batsman at number 6 for India. All eyes will be on him as he will be wearing the Indian color after 2 years. We saw him playing in the IPL 2024 and he was good and sharp as always.

Hardik Pandya, the vice-captain of the team is ready to set the world on fire this ICC Tournament. He bowled four overs many times in this IPL season and this allows the team to play an extra batter in the team. His presence in the playing 11 as the finisher and bowler opens up the dimensions for other players as well.

There will be a toss-up between Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal for number 9. As far as form is concerned, both bowlers are in good touch but the Left-arm factor of Kuldeep Yadav gives him an edge over Yuzvendra Chahal.

Jasprit Bumrah’s spot at number 10 is practically etched in stone, but the intrigue thickens around who will clinch the elusive 11th spot—Mohammad Siraj or Arshdeep Singh? Arshdeep, with his left-arm swing, tempts with the promise of early powerplay breakthroughs, while Siraj offers a steadier hand, brimming with control and reliability. The battle between these two is intense, yet Siraj, with his hefty portfolio of big tournament experience, appears to edge ahead in this perplexing selection dilemma.
