India Final Squad for ICC T20 Cricket World Cup 2024

India’s pursuit of the much-awaited glory will be spearheaded by Rohit Sharma, as the BCCI revealed their roster for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

Before the announcement, a lot of people were speculating about who will be the wicketkeeper and competing for the position. In the end, India has given the gloves to Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant.

With this, Pant will play in an international cricket match for the first time since an injury that almost killed him in December 2022 and sidelined him for over a year.

Shivan Dube’s IPL form made it tough for him to be excluded; following his appearance in the most recent T20I series against Afghanistan, he maintained his spot in the squad.

India’s bowling team, which includes Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, and Ravindra Jadeja, is heavy on spin. Jasprit Bumrah will spearhead the pace attack, backed by Mohammed Siraj, Arshdeep Singh, and vice captain Hardik Pandya.

The choice of hitters did not come as a surprise; skipper Rohit, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Virat Kohli were all anticipated to shore up the top order.

The pacers Avesh Khan and Khaleel Ahmed are the only other players Shubman Gill and Rinku Singh are included in the reserve side.

KL Rahul, who played in India’s last two T20 World Cup campaigns (2021 and 2022), is a notable absence from the list.

India squad: Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya (vc), 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
