On Tuesday, 30 April, the BCCI announced India's squad for the 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup set to take place in the USA and the West Indies. Rohit Sharma has assumed the leadership role, as expected, with Hardik Pandya appointed as vice-captain. 

However, there was a surprising exclusion as Rinku Singh was left out of the squad and named among the travelling reserves.

Sanju Samson has been named the designated wicket-keeper with Rishabh Pant also in the mix. However, KL Rahul was left out of the squad. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has also made a much-anticipated return.
