As soon as the final started, the dreams of 3 Indian cricketers were shattered, the moment for which they had worked so hard was far away


New Delhi. As soon as Rohit Sharma announced the playing XI for the T20 World Cup final, the dreams of at least three Indian players were shattered. For the final between India and South Africa, captain Rohit expressed confidence in the same playing XI that had won the semi-finals. With this it was decided that Yuzvendra Chahal, Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal will return home without playing a single match in the T20 World Cup 2024.

India had selected a 15-member team for the T20 World Cup 2024. Out of these, only 12 players got a chance to play the match. Captain Rohit Sharma kept his batting lineup the same from the first match to the final in the tournament. All-rounders Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel and Shivam Dubey also played all the matches. Only one change was seen in the bowling lineup.

Rohit Sharma gave three specialist fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh and Mohammad Siraj a chance in the playing XI in the first four matches played in the US. After the US tour, the Indian team reached the West Indies for the Super-8 and knockout matches. As soon as he reached the West Indies, captain Rohit included a spinner in the bowling lineup and included Kuldeep Yadav in place of Siraj.

In this way, Mohammad Siraj was seen sitting on the bench in the matches played in the West Indies. While Yuzvendra Chahal, Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal did not get to play a single match in the entire tournament. The dream of any cricketer is to play and win the World Cup. Chahal, Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal came very close to the dream of playing the T20 World Cup, but could not play

India's final XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dubey, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah.

South Africa's final XI: Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram (captain), Tristan Stubbs, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Enrique Norkia, Tabrez Shamsi.
