Virat Kohli & Hardik Pandya to join team later as second batch leaves for T20 World Cup: Report

As per reports, Virat Kohli will reach New York before Team India's T20 World Cup warm-up match vs Bangladesh on June 1.

So after the IPL 2024 final, all the focus shifts to the T20 World Cup in USA and the West Indies. The first batch of Indian players left couple of days back, including Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant, while the second batch left on Monday morning. This group had the likes of Sanju Samson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan and Yashasvi Jaiswal.

As per a report in News18, the Indian team’s support staff also reached the USA in the first batch — including coach Rahul Dravid. But MI skipper Hardik Pandya is believed to reach New York from London, and not with the team.

Virat Kohli Takes Extended Break

Not just Pandya, but even ex-skipper Virat Kohli will join the team late for the T20 World Cup. But he would be there in time, before the warm-up match between India and Bangladesh on June 1. In fact, Kohli is expected to leave by the end of May.
