As the cricket world gears up for the T20 World Cup 2024, all eyes are on India and their potential squad for the tournament. As the event is set to commence on June 1 in the USA and the West Indies, fans will anticipate a successful campaign for India.


Team India, despite being a cricketing powerhouse, has faced a trophy drought in multinational events since 2013. The last triumph was in the Champions Trophy under MS Dhoni's captaincy. The T20 World Cup in 2007 marked India's inaugural victory in the format, and fans hope for a repeat performance in 2024.

While the core of the team is likely to comprise established stars, the surprises in the squad could bring the much-needed X-factor. The balance between experience and fresh talent will be the key to India's success in the 2024 T20 World Cup. Cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the official announcement to see which players will don the Indian jersey and aim for glory in the prestigious tournament. So, here is our predicted 15-member squad for India in the T20 World Cup 2024:

His captaincy and formidable batting make him the ideal leader, promising to replicate his impact from the World Cup 2023 in the T20 format.

Star India batter Virat Kohli returns for India in the T20I series against Afghanistan, adding a significant boost to their lineup for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. His stellar performances, notably as the highest run-scorer in the 2022 edition in Australia, showcase his prowess. This year, he might be seen opening with Rohit Sharma. Kohli's batting prowess and ability to finish innings make him a crucial asset for the team.

3. Suryakumar Yadav: 

Suryakumar Yadav

The world’s number one T20I batter, Suryakumar Yadav, will be the first name on the team sheet for sure. His batting abilities and skills to sail through pressure situations make him a guiding choice.

4. Rinku Singh:

Rinku Singh

A young sensation in the Indian batting line-up Rinku Singh has been phenomenal for India since his debut. He has had the highest strike rate and average as a finisher in the last few months. With India needing someone quick in the slog over, he will surely be there.

5. Dhruv Jurel (WK):

Dhruv Jurel

With Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul out of contention for different reasons, Dhruv Jurel might see a national call. The young wicketkeeper-batter is currently the top choice for the team management. However, things will depend on his performance in the initial IPL matches.

6. Hardik Pandya:

Star India all-rounder Hardik Pandya has finally made his comeback to competitive cricket after a prolonged injury. Jay Shah has announced him as Vice Captain of India, and he is set to join the squad in the West Indies.

Allrounder Ravindra Jadeja missed the last T20 World Cup due to injury. Now fit and in good form, his skills in both batting and bowling make him a vital asset for India. With pitches in the West Indies favouring him, Jadeja's experience gives him an edge over others like Axar Patel and Washington Sundar in India's T20 World Cup squad considerations.

Jasprit Bumrah

Star India pacer Jasprit Bumrah also missed the T20 World Cup 2022 due to injury.

Star India pacer Mohammed Siraj has showcased remarkable growth across all cricket formats. He is vital to the team; he spearheads the new ball attack in T20Is.

Sanju Samson eyes the role of the second-choice keeper in the T20 World Cup 2024 squad.

14. Ravi Bishnoi:

Ravi Bishnoi

Ravi Bishnoi, awarded Player of the Series in the December 2023 T20I series against Australia, showcased exceptional leg-spin skills.

His smart bowling style adds depth to India's bowling arsenal, offering a valuable option against formidable opponents in the shortest format.

15. Mukesh Kumar:

Mukesh Kumar

With his hit-the-deck bowling abilities, India will be keen to use him as a backup pacer on slow pitches in the USA and West Indies. However, his performance in IP 2024 might decide his fate, as he will have competition from Umran Malik and Akash Deep.
