New Delhi. The Indian cricket team is going to start its campaign in the T20 World Cup 2024 today on Wednesday. India's first match is against Ireland. Ireland may not be a contender for the title, but the Indian team will not make the mistake of taking it lightly. In the T20 World Cup being played in America, the conditions, weather and pitch there are already challenging. In such a situation, the Indian team is going to enter the field with full strength from the first match itself.

The Indian team does not have much experience of playing in America. In the matches played so far in America, the pitch has troubled the batsmen. In such a situation, the Indian team can focus more on its batting. Especially there will be an effort to strengthen the middle-lower order, for which there is talk of including Shivam Dubey in the playing eleven.

India may have to take a tough decision to include Shivam Dubey in the playing XI. For this, Indian captain Rohit Sharma may have to keep his regular opening partner Yashasvi Jaiswal out of the playing XI. Virat Kohli can be made to open in place of Jaiswal. This will also mean that the responsibility of fast batting in the powerplay will fall entirely on Rohit because Virat often likes to play a long innings by standing at one end.

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