Due to their strong core in the shortest format, India will be a “serious challenger” in the T20 World Cup. The following year, according to former head coach Ravi Shastri. However, he also reminded everyone that winning requires rising to the occasion in knockout games.

Australia defeated India in a one-sided final in Ahmedabad more than a week ago. And the nation’s cricket community is still in shock over the result, considering that the hosts had a 10-match winning streak entering the championship match.

Prior to the T20 World Cup, which will take place in the Caribbean and the USA starting on June 4 of next year. Shastri claimed that India had identified a core group of young players.

India will be serious challenger for 2024 T20 World Cup title: Shastri

It was heartbreaking but a lot of our guys will learn, the game moves on. And I see India winning a World Cup very soon,” Shastri said.

It might not be a 50-overs (one) that easily because you have to rebuild the side but 20-overs cricket. The very next one India will be very serious challenger because you have got the nucleus. This is a shorter format of the game. Your focus should be on that.” With the presence of impact players such as Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Rinku Singh, India have a strong T20 core says shastri.

Shastri acknowledged that remembering that India, the best team in the tournament, fell short in the championship game still hurts.

To be honest, it still hurts from the outside, that we could not win the cup because we were the strongest team.” Even the legendary Sachin Tendulkar had to wait (for) six World Cups before winning one. Nothing worthwhile comes easily. “You have to be damn good on that big day to win a World Cup; you don’t win World Cup easily,” Shastri remarked at the Indian Street Premier League registration launch here.

“On that momentous day, your past actions hold no significance; it’s when you step up to the plate.” You were aware of what would happen (in terms of the format) even before the tournament officially began.

There are early doors, and if you perform well in the semifinal and final on those two days, you win,” the top four teams said. And those were the two days when Australia surprised everyone by performing,” shastri remarked.

Australia won the 50-over World Cup for a record sixth time. “They lost the first two, but on the D-day, the two days, they did,” Shastri remarked.
