4 Indian Cricketers Expected To Play Their First Ever T20 World Cup In 2024

T20 World Cup

We are just a few weeks away from one of the biggest cricketing events, the ICC Men’s T20I World Cup 2024. Currently, most Indian cricketers are participating in the Indian Premier League and sharpening their skills in T20 cricket. But soon a squad of world-class Indian cricketers will travel to the United States of America (USA) and West Indies to participate in the upcoming ICC event.

Hopefully, BCCI will announce the Indian squad very soon. Fans are quite certain about a few big names like Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, and Virat Kohli, who will be in the squad but it will be interesting to see which other players will join them for the T20 World Cup. Here in this article, let us take a look at the players who might make their debut in this tournament.

4 In Form Players

Currently, there’s a war going on among the Indian players for a place in the squad for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. The ongoing IPL 2024 will certainly affect selectors’ minds and we may have some players that we weren’t expecting earlier. Here are 4 players who are doing great in IPL and may play this ICC tournament for the first time: 

  1. Shubman Gill

If we listen to some enthusiastic fans and cricket experts, Shubman Gill is the next Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli in Indian cricket. The 24-year-old young player has been performing excellently in the last few years. 

He is currently one of the top Indian cricketers and is among the first-choice players for India in all three formats. His performance in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024 is impressive. Seeing his current form and stats, fans are very confident that Shubman will make it to the T20 World Cup squad.

  1. Kuldeep Yadav

For the past couple of years, Kuldeep Yadav had bad form, but recently he made an excellent comeback for Team India. Since the previous edition of IPL 2023, he has been performing well and has become the first-choice spinner for the Indian Team in white-ball cricket. 

His performance since his comeback has been exceptional, and he might be the first-choice spinner in India’s squad for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. If he gets selected as fans are hoping, it will be his first-ever ICC T20 World Cup.

  1. Sanju Samson

As we know there’s a fight going on to secure a position in the Indian squad, the most intense battle is for the wicket-keeper’s spot. KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Jitesh Sharma, and Dinesh Karthik are doing well and all of them are looking equally strong contenders.  But captain of Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson might win the race and participate in any ICC event for India for the first time.

  1. Shivam Dube

The all-rounder Hardik Pandya doesn’t seem to be in good form, so fans are expecting Shivam Dube may replace him in the squad. Currently, Shivam is doing well for the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2024.

India’s Predicted Squad

Here is India’s Predicted Squad:

  • Rohit Sharma (C)
  • Virat Kohli
  • Shubman Gill Or Yashasvi Jaiswal
  • Rishabh Pant (WK)
  • Suryakumar Yadav
  • Rinku Singh
  • Shivam Dube
  • Hardik Pandya
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Jasprit Bumrah
  • Jitesh Sharma Or Sanju Samson (WK)
  • Ravi Bishnoi
  • Mayank Yadav
  • Arshdeep Singh

These are the players that we are expecting to see in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. However, many young talents are playing really well in the ongoing IPL, and the selectors may surprise us with many unexpected entries.
