Sreesanth picks Team India’s squad for next ICC World Cup


Australia, led by Pat Cummins, upset Rohit Sharma and company in the ICC World Cup 2023 final to win their record-tying sixth 50-over title on Sunday, halting the Indian momentum. At the Narendra Modi Stadium, the Travis Head-inspired team defeated the World Cup hosts by six wickets. Ending Team India’s run of consecutive victories in the ICC event final.

In the upcoming major event, the Asian powerhouses will look to their younger generation to continue. The legacy after India finished second in the One Day International (ODI) World Cup. The T20 World Cup will be happen in the United States for the first time since the ICC tournament began. The US will co-host the upcoming ICC World T20 tournament the following year.

‘Will Rohit be playing or not in world cup is a big question’

Former Indian pacer Shanthakumaran Nair Sreesanth has made an early guess. Regarding who will captain the 2007 winners, Rohit or Hardik Pandya, for the World Cup in 2024. Under Rohit’s direction, India advanced to the T20 World Cup semifinals in 2022. “It remains to see if Rohit Sharma will play. Because he has won so many IPLs, he will be the captain. Depending on the circumstances and environment, either Rohit Sharma or Hardik Pandya will captain the team,” Sreesanth told Sportskeeda.

In addition, the former Indian pacer thinks that superstar Rishabh Pant is healthy enough to be chosen as the T20 World Cup’s third wicketkeeper. Pant sustained multiple injuries in a serious car accident last year, which prevented him from attending major events. “If fit, Rishabh Pant ought to start as the third keeper since he might require some time to adjust to the setup. Instead of someone who merely hangs around, we need a match-winner. A player who is prepared to play and win games is what we need. So far, so good. Depending on his form, he could be the first or second wicketkeeper, Sreesanth continued.
