Take a close look on Team India


2 most successful batsmen of T20I in the team: The team includes 2 most experienced batsmen in the form of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Both have scored the most runs in T-20 International cricket.

Best bowler and batsman of T-20 in the team: Jasprit Bumrah and Suryakumar Yadav are the two best players of T-20 cricket at present. Surya is also the number-1 batsman in ICC T-20 rankings. Any team in the world can rely on Bumrah's bowling skills for any situation. Along with him, Chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav is also in top class form.

4 all-rounders are raising hopes: There are 4 all-rounders in the squad in the form of Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dubey, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel. If 3 of these are also part of the playing-11, then captain Rohit will get more options for bowling and batting.

Of these, 7 have scored international runs at a strike rate of more than 140 in the last 2 years. Among these, the strike rate of Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant is low. Pandya scored at a strike rate of 135, while Pant and Jadeja remained injured most of the time.


Part time bowler not present: The squad includes 4 batsmen and 2 wicketkeepers, not a single batsman among these 4 is bowling part time at present. Yashasvi, Virat and Rohit are able to bowl, but all three have not been bowling much in international cricket for some time now. On the other hand, defending champion England includes 7 all-rounders.

Lack of in-form finisher: Any 3 or 4 players out of Rishabh Pant, Shivam Dubey, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja will play the role of finisher. Among these, only Dubey's recent strike rate is more than 170, while the remaining 3 could not perform anything special. Rinku Singh was kept out of the squad, he has scored runs at a strike rate of more than 175 in international cricket. The figures for IPL 2024 were taken.
