Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer feels that ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024, Virat Kohli and Yashasvi Jaiswal should open for the "Men in Blue."


The T20 World Cup which will be jointly hosted by the West Indies and the USA is set to begin from June 1 to 29. The Indians will also clash with Bangladesh in their only warm-up game on June 1 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.


Jaffer took to his official X account and said that Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav should come out to bat in the third and fourth batting positions. Jaffer praised Rohit for playing well against the spin bowlers.


"Kohli & Jaiswal should open in the World Cup IMO (in my opinion). Rohit & SKY should bat 3 and 4 depending on the start we get. Rohit plays spin really well so batting at 4 shouldn't be a concern," Jaffer wrote on X.

India will begin their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign on June 5 where they will clash with Ireland at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

The mega clash of the marquee event, India vs Pakistan will be played on June 9. Later, the Rohit-led India will lock horns with USA and Canada.

Team India last won an ICC title was the Champions Trophy in 2013. In this tournament, they will look to end their ICC trophy drought. Since 2013, India has reached the 50-over World Cup final in 2023, semifinal in 2015 and 2019, the title clash of the ICC World Test Championship in 2021 and 2023, T20 WC final in 2014, semifinals in 2016 and 2022 but failed to secure a big ICC trophy.

India will be aiming to win their first T20 WC title since they won the inaugural edition of the tournament back in 2007 in South Africa. In the last edition held in Australia in 2022, India fell short to England by 10 wickets in the semifinals.

India's T20 World Cup 2024 squad: Rohit Sharma (C), Hardik Pandya (VC), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Sanju Samson (WK), Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd. Siraj.

Reserves: Shubman Gill, Rinku Singh, Khaleel Ahmed and Avesh Khan.
