Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer suggests that Virat Kohli and Yashasvi Jaiswal should open for India in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, with Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav following in the batting order. Jaffer praises Rohit’s ability to handle spin, advocating for him to bat at number four.

India’s T20 World Cup campaign begins on June 5 against Ireland at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. The highly anticipated India-Pakistan match is scheduled for June 9, followed by matches against tournament co-hosts USA and Canada on June 12 and 15, respectively.

India aims to break their ICC trophy drought, last winning the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013. Despite several strong performances in various ICC events, including reaching the T20 World Cup final in 2014, India has not secured a major ICC trophy since 2013.

The Indian squad for the T20 World Cup includes Rohit Sharma as captain, with Hardik Pandya as vice-captain. Other key players include Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, and Jasprit Bumrah. Reserves include Shubman Gill, Rinku Singh, Khaleel Ahmed, and Avesh Khan.
