T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8: India’s Probable Playing XI vs Bangladesh

India are slated to take on Bangladesh in their second Super 8 Group 1 match in the T20 World Cup 2024, at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. After defeating Afghanistan by 47 runs in their first match of the Super 8, the Indian cricket team have taken a big step towards making the semifinal of the T20 World Cup once again.

In this article, SportsTiger looks at India’s probable playing XI versus Bangladesh in the Super 8 Group 1 clash of the T20 World Cup 2024.

Openers: Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli

The captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are not in the best of form in the T20 World Cup 2024, losing their wicket cheaply while trying to maximise the powerplay overs. Although there is a saying in sport that the form is temporary, but the class is permanent, which could very well prove to be true once Sharma and Kohli hit their straps in the Caribbean leg of the tournament.

Middle Order: Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya

Rishabh Pant is looking to play aggressive cricket with the bat from the get-go after getting the number three slot in the T20 World Cup 2024, and it has paid him rich dividends thus far, while his wicket-keeping skills have been quite exemplary as well. Suryakumar Yadav has notched up two consecutive fifties for India in the tournament in difficult batting conditions, showcasing why he is ranked number one in the ICC Men’s T20I batting charts.

Shivam Dube hasn’t had the fluency in his batting right throughout the T20 World Cup 2024, but his power-hitting exploits do strike fear in the opposition ranks. Hardik Pandya has been delivering consistent results with bat, ball, and in the field during the tournament, proving his worth as one of the most sought-after all-rounders in world cricket currently. 

Lower Middle Order: Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel

Ravindra Jadeja was quite impressive in all departments of the game in his previous outing against Afghanistan after a quiet start to the T20 World Cup 2024. Axar Patel is consistently delivering decent performances as an all-rounder in the tournament, repaying the faith of the selectors who picked him in the team ahead of some recognised names in the travelling reserves and back home in India.

Tailenders: Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah

Kuldeep Yadav was given an opportunity to play for the first-time in T20 World Cup 2024 against Afghanistan at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, on a pitch which provided assistance to the spinners. Arshdeep Singh and Jasprit Bumrah have been the two of the top wicket-takers for India in the tournament, dismissing key batters up front, in the middle overs, and at the death as well.
