India could not win the title of ODI World Cup 2023 but the hopes of the team are not over yet. India has a big tournament like the T20 World Cup 2024, by winning which Team India can end the ICC trophy drought of 12 years. Discussion has started on which players will be included in the Indian team in this tournament. There are a lot of discussions, especially about the opening batsman. In such a situation, let us tell you what could be the possible opening pair of India for this tournament.
These two players will open in T20 World Cup 2024:
If we talk about the opening pair of Team India in the T20 World Cup 2024, then this responsibility can be on the shoulders of Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Let us tell you that it is estimated that Rohit Sharma can captain this tournament to be held jointly in America and West Indies. The reason for this is the fitness of Hardik Pandya. It is known that Hardik was injured during the Bangladesh match in the World Cup 2023. Since then he has not played any match for Team India. Even at present, Hardik is not with the team. At present the date of his return has not been revealed.
Rohit Sharma will be seen captaining:
But if media reports are to be believed, he can make a comeback in IPL 2024. Same if he is not completely fit in IPL or gets injured again after getting fit. Because it has happened many times before that he has got injured in the middle of the tournament. In such a situation, the team management is left with no option for captaincy.
Keeping in mind the T20 World Cup 2024, BCCI will not appoint any new player as captain anytime soon. However, Suryakumar Yadav’s option will be back in Team Managementnet. But he has no experience of captaincy in big tournaments. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma is the only option left.
Yashasvi Jaiswal will take over the responsibility of Rohit’s partner:
If Rohit Sharma will be captain in the T20 World Cup 2024, then one thing is certain he will be seen in the role of opener. However, it remains to be seen who will be his partner during this period. At present three names are at the forefront for the opening. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rituraj Gaikwad, and Shubhman Gill may be given one or two chances.
Jaiswal and Shubhman Gill are more likely to get a chance. Jaiswal is likely to get a chance with Rohit Sharma in the playing 11. This is because this left-handed batsman has shown a brilliant game recently. Shubman Gill will be given a chance as the third opener.
India’s probable team for T20 World Cup 2024:
Rohit Sharma (captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Jitesh Sharma, Rinku Singh, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh.
