Three Big Reasons Why India Can Win T20 World Cup 2024

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 is co-hosted by the USA and West Indies from June 1-29. All eyes are on the Indian cricket team as they aim to end their long wait for an ICC title.India last won an ICC event in 2013 when they lifted the Champions Trophy.

Since then, they have reached several finals and semi-finals but couldn’t get their hands on the coveted trophy. However, this time around, the stars seem aligned for the Men in Blue. Here are three big reasons why India should win the T20 World Cup 2024:

Why India Can Win T20 World Cup 2024

1. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s Last Dance

This could potentially be the last T20 World Cup for Indian batting icons Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Both veterans are well aware of this reality and will be highly motivated to give their absolute best one final time. Their experience, leadership qualities and ability to win matches single-handedly make them invaluable assets.

Kohli, in particular, has been in sublime form, emerging as the highest run-scorer in the recent IPL 2024. Despite some inconsistencies, Rohit remains a formidable opener and a proven captain in ICC events. Their hunger to end their illustrious careers with a World Cup triumph will drive them to perform at the highest level.

2. Balanced and Experienced Squad

India have assembled a well-rounded squad with a perfect blend of experience and youth. The batting lineup boasts the likes of Suryakumar Yadav (world’s no.1 T20I batter), Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, and the promising Yashasvi Jaiswal.The bowling attack is equally formidable, led by the world-class Jasprit Bumrah.

It is complemented by a potent spin quartet of Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, and the returning Yuzvendra Chahal. This depth in both batting and bowling gives India the flexibility to adapt to various conditions.

3. Rahul Dravid’s Swansong

The T20 World Cup 2024 will likely be Rahul Dravid’s final assignment as the head coach of the Indian team. Under his astute guidance, India reached two ICC finals in 2023. The players will be motivated to give their best and win the T20 World Cup as a fitting farewell to their highly respected coach.

Dravid’s calm demeanor, tactical nous, and ability to nurture talent have been instrumental in shaping this Indian team. The players will undoubtedly want to repay his faith and efforts by bringing home the coveted trophy, making it a memorable swansong for the legendary cricketer-turned-coach.

While India faces stiff competition from teams like England, Australia, and the West Indies, their experienced squad, motivated senior players, and the desire to bid farewell to Dravid on a high note make them strong contenders to lift the T20 World Cup 2024 trophy.
