T20 World Cup: T20 World Cup 2024 is going to start from June 1 in West Indies and America. Team India can be announced soon for this tournament to be played between 20 teams. Amidst all this, a big news is coming out before the team selection meeting. In this meeting, a big decision can also be taken regarding the vice-captain of the team.

Will the vice-captain of Team India be changed?

According to the report of Cricbuzz, the name of the vice-captain may be discussed in the team selection meeting to be held for the T20 World Cup. At present Hardik Pandya is handling this responsibility. But in the meeting, re-appointment of Rishabh Pant as the vice-captain of the Indian team can be considered. Let us tell you that Rishabh Pant has also played the role of vice-captain of Team India earlier also. But he has not played for Team India since a car accident in December 2022.

There can be discussion on the name of Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant is currently playing for Delhi Capitals in IPL. His performance in this season of the league has been quite excellent. In such a situation, he will be India's first choice wicketkeeper for the T20 World Cup in June. At the same time, he has also left his mark as a captain. He has also once held the captaincy of the Indian team. Pant captained the Indian team in the five-match T20 series against South Africa in June 2022.

Hardik Pandya struggling with bad form

The current season of IPL has been nothing special for Hardik Pandya. He could score only 197 runs in 9 matches and took only 4 wickets. At the same time, under his captaincy, Mumbai Indians have lost 6 out of 9 matches. In such a situation, the responsibility of vice-captain can be considered before the T20 World Cup. But Pandya's ability as India's captain cannot be ignored. He was appointed the vice-captain of the team for the World Cup last year. At the same time, in T20, he was handling the responsibility of the team since the 2022 World Cup.
