T20 World Cup 2024: Recently, the Indian cricket team faced defeat in the ODI World Cup. One significant reason for this loss was the lack of experienced players during the final match. Due to this, the BCCI has decided to select a squad of 30 players for the T20 World Cup 2024 instead of the usual 15 or 18. Out of these, 15 players will travel to the West Indies to represent India, while the remaining players will serve as backups. The list of potential players includes names like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Let’s delve deeper into the details.
Team India gears up for the T20 World Cup
In fact, Team India last won an ICC tournament in 2013 and hasn’t secured a trophy since. Recognizing this, the BCCI has initiated significant planning, opting to choose 30 players for the T20 World Cup 2024, potentially including both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the lineup.
Possibility of Rohit and Virat making a comeback to the team
Media reports suggest that the BCCI has decided to keep an eye on 30 potential players for the T20 World Cup 2024, with 15 of them getting a chance to play. This event will be hosted by India, and there are discussions about the return of both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who last played their T20 match during the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Although there hasn’t been an official update on this matter, experts believe that both players could make a comeback. Considering that the IPL 2024 will precede the World Cup, the BCCI is closely observing several players.
It’s worth noting that the T20 World Cup 2024 is scheduled to begin on June 1, while the upcoming IPL season is set to kick off in March. Therefore, it will be interesting to see which players the management decides to include in the final 15.
