Team India’s overall dynamics of the squad have been enhanced by the inclusion of Suryakumar Yadav, who apparently is also the World’s number-ranked T20I batter. SKY not only brings stability to the team but also takes the onus to notch up big scores through the middle of the innings.

Known for his outrageous shots, Suryakumar Yadav has the ability to steer the team out of any situation, no matter how bad it is. He was India’s one of the key players during the 2022 edition of the T20 World Cup, where he ended up being the third-highest run-getter.

His recent form in the IPL has been decent. The Mumbai batter has scored 38.33 in 10 outings. He has three half-centuries to his name along with a century in his team’s flawed campaign.

Virat Kohli has often been criticised for his poor strike rate in the T20Is, but what sets him apart from other players is his ability to score runs even when the team is losing wickets. Arguably one of the best batters of all time, Virat Kohli has often proved his worth in gold when it comes to crucial games. Remember how he steered Team India out of trouble against Pakistan back in 2022?

To back his selection in the T20 World Cup 2024, Virat has piled up 661 runs at an average of 66.10 in 13 innings so far. The RCB opener has slammed five half-centuries and a century so far and is leading the highest run-scorers chart in the IPL 2024.

Team India has often found itself in a bit of a fix in the middle of the innings following the early fall of wickets. The lack of a fearless batter in the middle order had been an issue for the Indian team. However, to counter this, the Indian selectors have added Shivam Dube to the squad.

Dube’s fortunes have changed big time after started playing for Chennai Super Kings. In the two seasons so far, he is one of the outstanding performers for them. In the ongoing IPL season, Dube has 389 runs at an average of 38.90. Though his strike rate currently reads 169.86, it can clock in excess of 200 as well.

It remains to be seen, if Shivam Dube can continue his fine form till the World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and the USA and if he does, then he will be one of the guys to watch in the tournament owing to his prowesses to smash the opposition.
