How will the playing XI be in the first match of T20 WC, who will open Rohit?


Yashaswi, Sanju and Siraj may have to sit on the bench A match between India and Ireland will be played in New York on Wednesday

New Delhi. Teams India and Ireland will meet in T20 World Cup 2024 on Wednesday. This match is important for both the teams. Team India still has many unsolved questions as to what the team combination will be on the ‘drop in’ pitch. The matches played so far at the Nassau County International Stadium in New York have made it clear that there will not be too many runs like IPL 2024. Team India will get answers to many questions against Ireland. All eyes are on India vs Pakistan match to be played on Sunday. Rohit Sharma and Co have a last chance to warm up before the big match against Pakistan. Sanju Samson, Mohammad Siraj and Yashaswi Jaiswal may have to sit on the bench against Ireland.

Virat Kohli did not play the practice match against Bangladesh. He is sure to play in the match against Ireland (IND vs IRE). Sanju Samson was dropped into the opener along with Rohit Sharma but could not capitalize on the opportunity. Kohli can be sent in the opener against Ireland along with Rohit. It means that it is difficult for Yashaswi Jaiswal, who is sitting on the bench in the warm up match, to get a chance even in the first match. Suryakumar Yadav is certain to be at number three while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant will be at number four.

Team India will have to be alert, the Rohit brigade’s first encounter with the same team that once knocked Pakistan out of the World Cup.

Pandya and Shivam Dubey can also bowl
Hardik Pandya may be fielded at number five while Shivam Dubey may be fielded at number six. Both Pandya and Shivam also bowl medium pace. If both bowl 2-2 overs they can fulfill the quota of one specialist bowler. Akshar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja who know how to bowl as well as bat can be given a chance together. Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Arshdeep may get a chance in bowling. Mohammad Siraj may have to sit out the first match.

India’s probable XI against Ireland: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dubey, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh.
