Let us tell you that this time the T20 World Cup is being held in UAE and Oman, its first match is to be played on 17 October. But Team India’s first match is to be against Pakistan on 24 October.
When BCCI announced the 15-member team for the T20 World Cup, it was only then that it was informed that MS Dhoni would work as a mentor with Team India this time. This decision was taken with the advice of Team India coach Ravi Shastri, captain Virat Kohli, vice-captain Rohit Sharma.
This World Cup is going to be very special for Team India. Virat Kohli has already announced that he will step down from the captaincy of the Indian team in the T20 format after this World Cup. In such a situation, Team India would like to give a great farewell to its captain. Anyway, the Indian team has not won any T20 World Cup after 2007.
Team India for T20 World Cup: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel, Varun Chakraborty, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami.
