In less than a week, India's T20 World Cup squad will be away. For a team that last won an ICC trophy in 2013, the T20 World Cup 2024 is a great opportunity to Rohit Sharma and Co. to end a long drought. Several experts have given their opinions on what the ideal 15-member Indian team should look like. There is also 100% consensus on two players who should be in the playing XI: Virat Kohli And Jasprit Bumrah.

Harbhajan Singh, former star player of the Indian cricket team, had an interesting suggestion regarding Virat Kohli's batting order, depending on the situation.

“I believe Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma should open for India, and Virat Kohli should come in at number 3,” Harbhajan Singh told Star Sports.

“I would like to see a left-right combination at the top. If 6-7 overs are played, and if we have a player like Shivam Dubey, he can enter at No. 3. Kohli can then come in at 4 o'clock. We need to take the horses' approach to lessons here, and there is no disrespect to that. Kohli is a great player, whether he plays at No. 3 or No. 4, the team comes first. Even if you ask him this question, he will say that the team comes first. »

Another former Indian star Navjot Singh Sidhu advised the Indian cricket team coach Rahul Dravid and the BCCI selectors to choose three spinners and as many quality fast bowlers.

“My direct advice to Rahul Dravid is if you want to win this tournament, have five wicket-taking bowlers, it's simple. The collapse of a team's character comes from the compromise point. You have three spinners to Bishnoi, Kuldeep and Jadeja, who chooses himself. Mayank Yadav if he is in good shape, he enters on this side. Khalil Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar, Mohsin Khan should be the fast bowler. “, Sidhu said on Star Sports.

“India have a lot of options and they should not compromise and go for guys who can bat and bowl a bit. You think of all the World Cup winning captains, they would have gone for options of quality bowling. That's the secret. If seven batting can't win you the World Cup, even 8 batting can't do anything.”
