The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 is set to take place in the West Indies and the USA this June. India has a great chance to win their second T20 World Cup title since MS Dhoni led them to victory in 2007. Even though the event isn’t happening for another two months, cricket fans are already talking about who will be on each team and how they will be chosen. India is one of the favorites to win the title, so a lot of people are paying close attention to the selection issues, like Virat Kohli’s spot and the fierce battle for the wicketkeeper-batter position.

The BCCI president, Jay Shah, confirmed that captain Rohit Sharma will be in charge of the Indian team. But Rishabh Pant’s return from injury before the IPL 2024 makes the race for wicketkeeper-batter even more interesting. Pant, Ishan Kishan, Jitesh Sharma, and Sanju Samson are all in it for the spot. Recent news reports say that KL Rahul is being considered for this important job, even though he hasn’t played in a while because of an injury to his quadriceps tendon. Rahul’s skill as a wicketkeeper-batsman in the last ODI World Cup, along with his skill in front of the nets, has been noticed. The last T20I he played for India was in November 2022, but the BCCI is said to see him as their top choice for the World Cup.

Rahul’s T20I record speaks for itself: he has played 72 games and scored 2265 runs, making him India’s third-highest scoring player in the category. As cricket fans eagerly await the start of the T20 World Cup on June 1 (June 2 IST) with a match between the USA and Canada, all eyes will be on Rahul as he plays for the Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2024, which could secure his spot in India’s quest for T20 glory.
