Lucknow Super Giants fast bowler, Yash Thakur is also among the list of fast bowlers who can be picked for the 2024 World Cup squad. Yash Thakur is a decent fast bowler who is winning matches for LSG in IPL 2024. In this article, we will tell you the possibility of him playing in the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Lucknow’s right-arm medium fast bowler, Yash Thakur made his IPL debut in Jaipur against Rajasthan Royals. He leaked many runs in that match but he came into highlight when he took the first fifer of the 2024 season. He took 5 wickets against Gujarat Titans in Ekana stadium, Lucknow. Thakur made LSG win their first match against GT in IPL. Yash Thakur from then is consistently taking wickets and doing well for his team.

Lucknow’s bowling was looking weak after Mark Wood and Avesh Khan left but their young bowlers like Yash Thakur, Mayank Yadav, and Mohsin Khan stepped up for them and doing great for their team. Last night they registered a win against a strong Chennai side. 25-year-old Thakur plays for Vidarbha in domestic cricket. He was born in Kolkata. Now the question is if he can play for India in the upcoming 2024 T20 World Cup or not.

To be honest Yash Thakur’s chance of playing for India is not looking great as the 25-year-old bowler does not have that fire and pace in his bowling.

He mostly relies on his variations and pace variations which will be effective in West Indies conditions but BCCI will look for more options before going to him. Thakur also lacks international experience which will be required for the big stage of the World Cup.
