During a chat with Sportskeeda on YouTube, former Indian pacer S Sreesanth revealed his preliminary India squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Sreesanth picked most of the players from the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
However, he dropped Shubman Gill and inducted Yashasvi Jaiswal. He also inducted Rishabh Pant into the squad. Sreesanth also feels that Rohit Sharma should be the skipper of the team because he has won many IPL trophies.
“Will Rohit Sharma be playing or not is a big question. He’ll be captain because he has won all those IPLs. Either Rohit Sharma or Hardik Pandya will be captain depending on the situation, the surroundings”.
“Rishabh Pant if he’s fit should be there as the third keeper because he might need some time to come back to the setup. We need a match-winner not someone who just sticks around. We need a player who is ready to play and win matches. That’s as of now. He might be the second or first wicketkeeper depending on form,” S Sreesanth said.
Sreesanth’s preliminary 2024 T20 World Cup squad: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Siraj.

Recently, India lost the ICC World Cup 2023 final to Australia by 6 wickets. Now, the focus shifts to the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, which will take place in the West Indies next year. Notably, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have missed all the T20I action this year due to ICC ODI World Cup 2023. India has won the T20 World Cup just once in the 2007 edition.
