Rayudu unveiled India’s formidable squad during a discussion on Star Sports. With an exciting blend of experience and youth, the squad boasts some of India’s finest talents, promising an electrifying campaign on the global stage.

Rohit Sharma to lead

Leading the charge as captain is the dynamic Rohit Sharma, whose tactical acumen and explosive batting prowess have long made him a force to be reckoned with in the shortest format of the game. Joining him at the top of the order is the precocious Yashasvi Jaiswal, whose meteoric rise through the ranks has captured the imagination of fans across the cricketing world.

Virat Kohli to anchor middle order

The middle order is anchored by none other than the indomitable Virat Kohli, whose sheer consistency and insatiable hunger for runs make him a perennial threat to opposition bowlers. Alongside him stand the likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Riyan Parag, and Rinku Singh, each capable of turning the tide of a match with their explosive stroke play and impeccable timing.

Veteran wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik brings a wealth of experience to the squad, providing stability in the middle order and invaluable leadership behind the stumps. His composure under pressure and ability to finish games with panache make him a vital cog in India’s T20 setup.

Valuable all-rounders

In the all-rounders department, the ever-reliable Ravindra Jadeja and the hard-hitting Shivam Dube offer a perfect blend of spin bowling, dynamic fielding, and explosive batting, providing crucial balance to the side in all facets of the game.

Kul-Cha combination in spin

The spin department is spearheaded by the wily Yuzvendra Chahal and the crafty Kuldeep Yadav, whose ability to bamboozle batsmen with their guile and turn will be instrumental in India’s quest for glory.

Jasprit Bumrah to lead the pace attack

Meanwhile, the pace battery is led by the fiery Jasprit Bumrah, whose lethal yorkers and unerring accuracy make him a nightmare for opposition batters, ably supported by the emerging talents of Mohammed Siraj and Arshdeep Singh.

Rounding off the squad is the exciting young talent of Mayank Yadav, whose raw pace and swing promise to add an extra dimension to India’s bowling arsenal.
