IPL 2024: Players who might have sealed their spot for T20 World Cup

Let us take a look at 3 players who might have sealed their World Cup spot after doing well in IPL.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the finest platforms to gain entry in the national side. Over the years, several players have gone on to represent their country after doing well in the IPL. With the T20 World Cup just months away, all the players are doing their best to get selected for the marquee tournament. In this article, we will take a look at 3 Indian players who might have booked their ticket for the T20 World Cup after doing well in the ongoing IPL. Let us begin:

Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant was team India’s prominent wicket-keeper choice before the batter got involved in a horrific road accident in 2022 and got ruled out from the competitive cricket. Making his return in IPL 2024, Pant has smashed two back-to-back fifties in the competition. Speaking about his overall numbers in IPL 2024, he has scored 152 runs in just four innings with an astonishing strike-rate of 158.33. The Southpaw is also keeping the wickets for DC. As a result, Pant can be a front-runner for WK role in India’s squad for the T20 World Cup.

Virat Kohli

Before the start of IPL 2024, there were some media reports suggesting that Virat Kohli might not be named in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 WC with Ishan Kishan replacing him in the top order. However, Kohli has hit back at the critics in the ongoing IPL. Currently, Kohli is the leading run-scorer in the ongoing tournament with 203 runs to his name. He is also playing at a strike rate of above 140 with two fifties to his name.

Mohit Sharma

Leading wicket-taker in the ongoing IPL, Mohit Sharma might get picked in the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup. So far, he has taken 7 wickets in four games. Not only that, but Mohit was also the second highest wicket-taker in last year’s IPL. The right-arm pacer has a variety of slower balls in his arsenal which might be very handy on the tracks of Carribean.
