IPL 2024: KKR players who could represent India in 2024 T20 World Cup 

There are a few KKR Indians players who might shatter the selection door and get into the India T20 World Cup squad

Two-time champions KKR are always considered the dark horse of the IPL. As they never fail to experiment with their squad and always come with a stronger team. Apart from CSK, KKR is also one of the teams that have a balanced composition of senior and young players. Likes of Ankur Raghuvanshi, who are playing their first season, sharing dressing room with greats like Sunil Narine, makes this franchise unique.

This combination of bringing young talent and senior players together has always paid them well. As mentioned not every team provides this design. The KKR framework is appreciated, and every team wants to emulate it, especially the Indian team who are aiming to win their second T20 World Cup title.

But the question arises , is there any player from KKR who can play for India in this T20 World Cup?. And if yes, who are they? Let’s check a few players who are almost certain to make it into the India T20 World Cup squad.

Shreyas Iyer

Although Iyer has not had a good time with the bat this IPL season to date. He has scored 140 runs in six matches with a below-average strike rate of 122.41. However, his aggressive batting, especially in white-ball formats, is well-known to everyone. Also, taking into account the pitches in the US and West Indies,where the T20 World Cup is going to occur. It’s anticipated that we will see a low bounce, a condition that Iyer likes.

Looking at these scenarios, he could get a spot in the India T20 World Cup 2024 squad.

Rinku Singh

Rinku Singh’s name is almost certain in the 2024 World Cup India squad. Singh came into the limelight when he smashed 30 runs in the last six balls and snatched the victory from the Gujarat Titans in last IPL season. Since then, he has been consistent in KKR’s playing 11. In the ongoing IPL 2024, he has scored just 83 runs in 6 games, but he made all the runs with a hefty strike rate of 162.75.

Singh, who usually plays lower down the order, has been a key asset for KKR. With his aggressive batting, he has already impressed a lot of cricket viewers. And it seems like his place is almost certain in the India T20 World Cup 2024 squad.

Harshit Rana

Rana is another emerging fast bowler who is doing wonders for KKR. Having played 5 IPL matches to date in this IPL season, he has picked up 7 wickets with a decent bowling economy of 9.50. Although this sample size is still not enough to judge his skills, along with Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj, who look certain in the India T20 World Cup squad, we might see Rana as well.

It’s interesting how things turn around. At one point, India was struggling with not having serial pacers. And now, after the entry of Umran Malik, Mohammed Siraj, and Harshit Rana into the domestic circuit,it looks like India has become the new fast bowling factory.
