The BCCI selection committee chairman, Ajit Agarkar, is expected to meet Indian captain Rohit Sharma in Delhi next week to finalise India’s team for the T20 World Cup 2024, which is set to take place in the West Indies and the USA in June this year. According to a report in Dainik Jagran on Saturday (April 20), the selection committee is likely to have a meeting on April 27 or 28 before announcing the squad on May 1, which is the last date set by the ICC to release the list of players.
As per the available information, players who have represented India in the shortest format of the game are likely to be preferred. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Arshdeep Singh, and Mohammed Siraj are almost certain to get picked unless they suffer a last-minute injury.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya’s selection will depend on his performance in the IPL, where he has so far failed to impress with his bowling for the Mumbai Indians and hasn’t made too many runs either.
As for the opener's role, there is tough competition between Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal, and if both of them are picked, then one of Shivam Dube or Rinku Singh will have to sit out.
The latest update was in the choice for wicketkeeper, in which it was reported that Sanju Samson is leading the race to be the backup to Pant for the 20-team tournament, which starts on June 1.
Samsom has impressed with his batting in the IPL 2024 for the Rajasthan Royals. But it is believed that KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan are also not totally ruled out.
There is a three-way race between Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, and Yuzvendra Chahal for the third spinner’s role. Axar is said to have an advantage over the other two because of his batting abilities.
India hasn’t won a T20 World Cup since becoming champions in the inaugural edition of the tournament, which was played in September 2007. In the last edition of the shortest format megaevent, which was played in Australia, India made it to the semifinal but got knocked out after losing the knockout match against eventual champions England by 10 wickets in Adelaide on November 10, 2022.
In the 2024 T20 World Cup, India is clubbed with Pakistan, Ireland, Canada, and the USA in Group A. The Men in Blue will open their campaign against Ireland in New York on June 5 and then face archrival Pakistan in New York on June 9. India’s last two Group A matches against the USA and Canada will be played on June 12 and 15 in New York and Florida, respectively.
