Hard-hitting batter from Chennai Super Kings, Shivam Dube also made the cut on the back of a stunning IPL season. Leg-spinner Yuzi Chahal along with wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav will be the main spinners in the squad.

Virat Kohli, who is the current orange cap holder in the IPL 2024 has silenced all the critics and has been included in the squad, due to a phenomenal IPL performance and will most likely be opening the batting along with Rohit Sharma or Yashasvi Jaiswal.

The selectors have shown faith in Yashasvi Jaiswal, knowing his potential and ability to perform big. The T20 World cup is scheduled to start on June 2 in the USA and the Caribbean. Team India will open their campaign against Ireland on June 5 in New York.
