5 unlucky players… who were ignored from the T20 World Cup team


Team India’s 15-member squad announced Indian team will face Ireland on June 5

New Delhi. The Indian team for T20 World Cup 2024 has been announced. The senior selection committee of BCCI announced the 15-member Team India a day before the deadline. The command of the Indian team in the World Cup will be in the hands of Rohit Sharma, while the responsibility of vice-captaincy will be on the shoulders of Hardik Pandya. Before the announcement of the team, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah held a meeting with the selection committee at Hotel ITC Narmada in Ahmedabad. BCCI announced the team for the World Cup through social media. The Indian Board did not hold any press conference for this. Many players who were eligible to play the World Cup have not got a place in this team. The selection committee headed by Ajit Agarkar ignored these players.

Rinku Singh, who has earned the tag of ‘finisher’ in a very short time in international cricket, has not got a place in the main team selected for the T20 World Cup. He has been kept among the reserve players. Rinku Singh, playing for Kolkata Knight Riders, also plays the role of finisher in IPL. He is being described as the future star of Team India.

Rinku has scored 356 runs in 15 T20 International matches which includes 2 half-centuries. During this period his strike rate has been 176.23.
