Openers of India for T20 World Cup 2024

India is one of the strongest contenders to win the upcoming T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA. This time India can finally end their ICC trophy drought. In this article, we will tell you all the possible openers for Team India in T20 World Cup 2024.

#1 Rohit Sharma

Hitman is the only confirmed opener on our list. He will lead team India in the T20 World Cup. Rohit Sharma is one of the finest T20 batsmen in the World. Rohit played a huge role for India in the 2023 World Cup. His form and approach will be important for India in 2024.

#2 Yashasvi Jaiswal

Young 22-year-old left-handed opening batsman, Yashasvi Jaiswal is also a very strong contender for the opener spot. Jaiswal was doing great for India in the bilateral series. He was scoring runs at a very decent strike rate. Although he is struggling with his form in IPL 2024 a player like him cannot keep quiet for too long.

#3 Shubman Gill

Gujarat Titans captain and one of the best young players in the world, Shubman Gill is also a choice for the openers. Gill was India’s confirmed opener in the 2024 World Cup where he was coming in a red-hot form in ODI cricket but in T20 cricket he is not doing what is expected from him. His T20 form can put doubt in the selector’s mind.

#4 Ishan Kishan

Mumbai Indians left-handed opening batsman, Ishan Kishan is doing very well in IPL 2024. He is giving an aggressive start to Mumbai in most of the matches. Kishan is also a wicketkeeper which can solve a big problem for wicketkeepers as well. The only thing opposing Kishan is that he is not in the central contract of the BCCI.

#5 KL Rahul

Lucknow Supergiants captain, KL Rahul is another option for opening batsmen. In the previous two T20 World Cups, it was Rahul and Rohit who were opening for India. Rahul played in the middle order in ODIs which came as a masterstroke for him and his team. In T20 it is hard for him to play in the middle order and as an opener, there is some competition for him.
