BCCI selectors to meet on April 27 or 28 to pick India squad for T20 World Cup

With the selection meeting dates confirmed and a potential squad taking shape, Indian cricket fans can expect an official announcement very soon. The chosen players will then have the opportunity to showcase their skills on the world stage as they strive to bring home the T20 World Cup trophy.

The wait is almost over for Indian cricket team fans! The BCCI selectors are gearing up to announce the squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup, co-hosted by the West Indies and the United States.

BCCI selection meeting dates narrowed down

With the deadline for all teams to submit their T20 World Cup 2024 squads to the ICC set for May 1st, the BCCI has narrowed down the window for its crucial selection meeting. The meeting is likely to take place on either April 27th or 28th as per Jagran News.

BCCI meeting: Rohit Sharma availability

This timeframe (April 27 or 28) coincides with an Indian Premier League match featuring Mumbai Indians and Rohit Sharma, in Delhi on April 27th. This conveniently places Rohit Sharma in the capital city, where other selectors will also be present.

Ajit Agarkar return from Spain

BCCI chief selector Ajit Agarkar will be returning from his vacation in Spain specifically for this meeting. Considering Mumbai Indians’ next match is on April 30th vs Lucknow Super Giants, April 27th and 28th emerge as the most suitable window for the selection discussions.

India World Cup squad: Who’s Almost In?

While the official announcement is yet to be made, reports suggest that 10 players are virtually guaranteed a spot in the squad, assuming they remain fit. These players include:

  • Rohit Sharma (Captain)

  • Suryakumar Yadav
  • Jasprit Bumrah
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Arshdeep Singh
