The Indian squad for the T20 World Cup 2024 is looking like a balanced squad with enough experienced campaigners and young guns. Captain Sharma, along with Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah is going to be the think tank of the team. 

All of these players have played on the biggest stage of international cricket, so they will be very crucial for keeping the dressing room calm and composed during tense moments. On the other hand, young blood like Jaiswal, Pant and Dube will add fearlessness and energy to the squad. 

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is going to take place in the Caribbean Islands for the second time and this time the USA will also host some matches of this World Cup. Team India will play their archrivals Pakistan at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on June 9, 2024. 

In the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, Team India is placed in Group A with Pakistan, Ireland, Canada and USA. Team India will begin their campaign against Ireland on June 5, 2024, in New York at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. Then they have to Play Pakistan, USA & Canada respectively.
