T20 World Cup: Team India is going to start its campaign against Ireland in the T20 World Cup 2024. The match will be held at Nassau International Stadium in New York where Team India can come with a big change. It is believed that there is going to be such a change in the batting order of Team India which fans might not be expecting. There are reports that Virat Kohli can come down to open with Rohit Sharma but after this decision, now Rishabh Pant can get lucky. There are reports that Team India can make Rishabh Pant bat at number 3.

Will Pant bat at number 3?

One reason for making Rishabh Pant bat at number 3 can be the exclusion of Yashasvi Jaiswal. It is believed that if Team India makes Virat open, then Pant will be a good option at number 3. He has proved this in the warm-up match as well. Pant scored a brilliant half-century against Bangladesh on the New York pitch. Pant played shots fearlessly and this quality is forcing him to be given a chance at number 3. Meaning, even if Team India loses the first wicket early, Pant can increase the run rate by batting fast. After Pant, batsmen like Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja are also known for aggressive batting.

India's probable playing XI

Which playing XI the Indian team is going to field is also an important question. It will be interesting to see whether Shivam Dubey will be in this team or not. At the same time, who among Siraj and Arshdeep will be in the playing XI is also a question. Team India's playing XI can be like this - Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dubey, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Siraj.
