Top 6 Players in India T20 Squad

Rohit Sharma (Captain)

As mentioned above, Rohit Sharma is one of the few players of Indian cricket players who witnessed almost every T20 world cup series and picked up the trophy of the World Cup in 2007. India's right-handed opener, who established himself at the top of the order late in his career, has become an essential piece in India's limited-overs setup, particularly after his remarkable exploits in the limited-overs series in Australia in early 2016.

His record in the World Cup he played in 2015 has been outstanding, with 330 runs in 8 innings, including two fifties and a hundred, at an average of 47.14. Even between the 2015 and 2019 editions, Sharma has grown as a batter and will undoubtedly play a crucial part if India is to vie for cricket's most cherished trophy.

Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli is the most ambitious cricketer to emerge from India. He shattered records for the number of matches required to reach eight, nine, ten, and eleven thousand ODI runs. He severely threatened Sachin Tendulkar's 49 ODI and 51 Test hundreds records. Kohli was a precocious talent with a cover drive to die for when he emerged at the forefront as an Under-19 world Cup-winning captain.

Virat Kohli had recently stepped down as India's T20I captain and was subsequently removed as the ODI captain ahead of the South Africa tour. In the 2017/18 ODI season, his ODI average was a Bradmanesque 97.5, and he has an incredible 19 hundred since the 2015 World Cup. Ahead of India's South Africa tour, Virat Kohli stepped down as T20I captain and was subsequently removed as ODI captain.

Surya Kumar Yadav

From his performances in the last T20 Asia Cup, Surya Kumar Yadav took a unique place in the heart of fans. Suryakumar Yadav, a hard-hitter with all the shots, has a yen for making batting look easy, as he demonstrated during his four golden years with Mumbai Indians in 2018, during which they won the IPL twice with his 1700 runs at a strike rate of around 140. 

Yadav's first international came eleven years after his first-class debut in 2021. He hit the first ball he faced in a T20I, a Jofra Archer delivery, for six runs. He scored two fifties in his first three T20Is. Then the following year scored 117 off 55 in a game when India fell short against England's mammoth 215 total.

Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal is an aggressive legspinner who rose to prominence after taking 34 wickets in the National Under-19 Cooch Behar Trophy in 2009, finishing as the tournament's best wicket-taker. Chahal, a former chess player who represented India at juvenile levels, made his first-class debut for Haryana the same year and was recruited by the Mumbai Indians for their IPL squad in 2011.

Yuzvendra Chahal, the finest Indian leg-spinner in the Indian bowlers list and one of the best in the world in his generation, is playing in his maiden T20 World Cup after being overlooked for the 2021 edition.

Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant, a dasher, an aggressor, and maybe the perfect generation-next batter, was called up to the World Cup squad as a substitute for an injured Shikhar Dhawan. He was left out of the first World Cup roster but was given an opportunity due to Dhawan's injury. As a left-hander, he has the potential to derail the opposition's plans if India uses him wisely in the middle overs. A see-the-ball and hit-the-ball strategy may not work very frequently, but it will provide plenty of amusement. A successful season for the Delhi Daredevils before the World Cup would have also aided his mental state.

His cricketing status has only increased, with several commentators pleading for his inclusion in the team. Pant would want to make the most of his opportunity now that he has one. Last year's experience playing Test cricket in England will also help him acclimatize to the conditions better.
