Team India, despite all the cricketing prowess, has not been able to celebrate an ICC trophy since them winning the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy captained by MS Dhoni. They have played many knockout matches including the latest one in ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, but failed to end on the winning side. A strong group of players is required who can win the next T20 World Cup 2024.

India has been put in Group A with arch-rival Pakistan. Rohit Sharma-led side will start its WC 2024 campaign against Ireland at New York. BCCI has not announced India’s squad for T20 World Cup 2024 but here is the strongest predicted Playing 11 and squad of Men In Blue for the tournament.

India’ Predicted Playing 11 for ICC T20 World Cup 2024

1. Rohit Sharma (Captain):

Rohit Sharma, who expressed his batting prowess through ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, has been handed over the captaincy for India in the T20I series against Afghanistan. His return has cleared any doubts over how the leadership will shape up for ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

2. Yashasvi Jaiswal:

Yashasvi Jaiswal has been named the “ICC Emerging Player of the Year 2023” for his fabulous performance and is part of India’s blueprint en route to the ICC tournament beginning shortly. With the ability to produce a well-balanced combination of right and left-hand batting at the top.

3.Virat Kohli:

Meanwhile, with Virat Kohli only featuring in the T20I series against Afghanistan, this should only signal that he is back. He is very likely one of the game-changers of India in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 as No 3.

4.Suryakumar Yadav:

ICC T20I player of the year and world’d no 1 T20I batter Suryakumar Yadav, has massive responsibility for India. With teammates like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, this will be the opportunity of a lifetime for him to shoulder massive responsibility and take their team to glory.

5.Sanju Samson (Wicketkeeper):

Sanju Samson’s comeback in the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan apparently indicates a positive assent from Indian management for Sanju Samson in the T20 format. With Ishan Kishan on an indefinite break since due to mental fatigue and KL Rahul not a consistent T20I team member, Samson comes out as the potential second-choice wicketkeeper in the squad.

6.Rinku Singh:

India has fished out a natural talent in Rinku Singh who can change the complexion of a game within a few overs. Singh has done some good work for India in only a few opportunities. Hence he will be one of the frontrunners to be selected for ICC T20 World Cup 2024, showing the promise of becoming big on the international stage.

7.Hardik Pandya (Vice-Captain):

Returning from injury sustained during World Cup 2023, it was here that Hardik Pandya was expected to return in earnest for IPL 2024. With the vice-captaincy in his bag, Pandya’s blow hurts in T20Is big time. He is an exceptional all-rounder and, therefore, holds a vital position for the team. Although news about his selection in the first-choice list has not yet been sorted out.

8.Ravindra Jadeja:

Ravindra Jadeja, who missed the last T20 World Cup in Australia due to injury, is now back in prime form and fitness. Jadeja thus forms a crucial cog in the Indian team’s wheel as they get ready to defend their crown on the bouncy pitches of West Indies. It’s not just his bowling ability, but what makes Jadeja such an invaluable asset is that he has proved time and again that he can bat too.

9.Kuldip Yadav:

He stands as India’s specialist tweaker in white-ball cricket. Kuldeep’s repertoire of variations makes him a deceptive force, particularly adept at confounding opposition batters. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma.

10.Jasprit Bumrah:

Jasprit Bumrah, who missed out on the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia due to injury, will be a pivotal member for India bowling attack. Having enjoyed great success against the West Indies in all formats of the game, the speedster true to his name will become an ace in the pack of fast bowlers for the Indian team. His experience and skills with the ball are expected just to play a massive factor for Team India in ICC T20 World Cup 2024 campaign.

11.Mohammed Siraj:

Mohammed Siraj, over the past couple of seasons, is turning himself into a lethal bowler for India in all three formats of the game. Depending on to open the bowling in T20I matches, Siraj will be a key player in ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Having done reasonably well in the recent T20Is,
