5 new players Indian selectors should groom for 2024 T20 World Cup


The 2024 T20 World Cup is two years away, but the Indian think tank will have to start preparing for it from the next series itself. The selectors have a hard decision to make now. Considering the way the Indian team has performed in the last two T20 World Cups, one might say that a complete overhaul of the squad will be the right way forward.

However, fans should not forget the way the current senior players in the squad have contributed to the team’s success in recent years. It is up to the selectors whether to drop all the big names or give them one more chance.Irrespective of whether they go for a complete overhaul or not, here are five new players whom the Indian selectors should groom for the 2024 T20 World Cup.Many fans and cricket experts have opined that India’s pace attack lacks a genuine fast bowler. Umran Malik has emerged as a player who can solve many problems for the Indian team.The right-arm pacer clocks 150 kmph consistently on the speedometer. He won the Emerging Player of the Tournament award in IPL 2022. The team management can groom him for the next two years and use him as one of their main fast bowlers at the 2024 T20 World Cup.Another type of player that the current Indian team lacked was a top-order batter who could bowl a few overs when needed. SunRisers Hyderabad star Abhishek Sharma fits into that role.He can play as a top-order batter as well as a finisher. On top of that, the youngster can also bowl left-arm spin. If given proper role clarity in the next two years, Sharma could be an asset for the Indian T20I team.Jitesh Sharma has been one of the most consistent finishers in domestic cricket. He made his IPL debut earlier this year and had a decent season with the Punjab Kings, where he scored 234 runs in 10 innings at a strike rate of 163.64.
