India boasts a strong batting lineup with Rohit and Virat Kohli leading from the front. Their top-order batters are capable of setting or chasing big targets. The middle order, bolstered by Suryakumar and Hardik Pandya, provides depth and power-hitting ability. In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah‘s pace and Axar’s spin provide a well-rounded attack. Kuldeep Yadav adds variety with his wrist spin. Overall, India is a formidable team with a good mix of experience and youth, capable of performing well in all conditions.

Markram’s leadership will be key in shaping their strategy, while de Kock’s aggressive batting sets the tone in the powerplay. Rabada leads a potent bowling attack with his pace and skill. Keshav Maharaj provides spin support, crucial for containing the opposition. Heinrich Klaasen‘s role in the middle order adds stability and ensures the team can build or chase targets effectively.
