Kul-Cha expected to come together for the T20 World Cup 2024: Reports 

Kul-Cha expected to come together for the T20 World Cup 2024: Reports 

Despite being the highest wicket taker for the Indian cricket team in T20Is, Chahal hasn't played a single match in the T20 World Cup.

Yuzvendra Chahal has been playing international cricket since 2016, and yet he’s played just one World Cup. Nine years into his career, the leg spinner could finally play a T20 World Cup match. Chahal’s partner in crime, Kuldeep Yadav, has already sealed his place in the eleven.

Kuldeep himself has himself made an comeback after struggling to find a place in the Indian team a couple of years ago and is arguably the best all-format spinner in the world right now. His second half, Chahal, in the deadly duo of Kul-Cha, is also expected to make a return after his incredible performance in IPL 2024.

BCCI to go for experience

With the T20 World Cup 2024 less than two months away, the BCCI wants to go into the event with more experienced players. An anonymous BCCI source told PTI, “There would not be any experimentation or left-field selections. All those who have played for India and have done well consistently in T20 internationals and the IPL will be rewarded.”

Yuzvendra Chahal to fight Axar and Bishnoi for the spot

It seems like Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep have sealed their spots as the two frontline spinners. For the reserve spinner’s spot, there is a three-way battle between Chahal, Axar Patel, and Ravi Bishnoi.

The BCCI acknowledges that Chahal is superior among the three in skills, but his past exclusion may play a role in his selection. Over the past couple of years, he’s also found himself out of favor and not selected often. The other leg spinner, Ravi Bishnoi, has proven his worth and was the No. 1 ranked T20I bowler not too long ago. Meanwhile, Axar provides an all-rounder option and is a like-for-like replacement for Jadeja.

Probable India Squad for T20 World Cup 2024
