The Indian team has performed brilliantly in the league stage of the T20 World Cup 2024. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, the team has won its first three matches. India has qualified for Super-8 by defeating USA. Meanwhile, reserve opener Shubman Gill and fast bowler Avesh Khan will be ‘released’ from the Indian team after the team’s final T20 World Cup group stage match against Ireland on Saturday.
A senior BCCI source privy to the developments told PTI on condition of anonymity, “Shubman and Avesh were to stay in America till the group league stage. This was already decided. So he will be dropped from the team after the match against Ireland.

According to media reports, the team management does not feel the need to take four standby players in the Super Eight phase. Therefore, only Rinku Singh and left-arm fast medium Khalil Ahmed will remain with the team during the Caribbean leg. The logic behind removing Gill and Avesh from the team is very simple. If captain Rohit Sharma or star batsman Virat Kohli gets injured, the team has the option of Yasshwi Jaiswal, in such a situation there is no need for a fourth opener.

Shubman Gill didn’t even take much batting practice in New York while Rinku spent a lot of time in net sessions. Rinku has the ability to replace any player in the middle order. The team management believes that with the presence of three fast bowlers along with Hardik Pandya and Dubey, there is no need for replacement and Khalil will be available as an option to deal with such a situation.

Rohit Sharma (captain), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Yashshwi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Sanju Samson (wicketkeeper), Shivam Dubey, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chauhan, Chauhan. Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj

Reserve players: Shubman Gill, Rinku Singh, Khalil Ahmed and Avesh Khan
