India’s T20 World Cup squad for the 2024 tournament will reportedly be chosen after the first half of the IPL, allowing selectors to evaluate players’ current form and fitness.

The Indian squad for the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2024, set to take place in the West Indies and the United States, will be finalized after the first half of the ongoing Indian Premier League. A source from the BCCI revealed that selections will occur by the end of April, following the conclusion of the IPL’s initial phase.

“The Indian team will be selected sometime during the last week of April, the time by which the first half of IPL will be over and the national selection committee will be in a position to assess the form and fitness of the contenders,” PTI quoted the source as saying.

Furthermore, the source disclosed that the initial group of players will depart for New York immediately after the IPL league stage ends on May 19.

“The first batch of cricketers will leave for New York immediately after the end of the league stage of IPL on May 19. Those players, whose teams won’t qualify for the final four will be going early, like it happened during WTC finals last year,” the source continued.

The source also emphasized that the National Cricket Academy (NCA) solely handles injuries for centrally contracted or targeted players.

“If any centrally contracted or targeted player gets injured, his case will automatically come under the purview of the NCA’s Medicine and Sports Science team. Also for the centrally contracted players and targeted players (India A, Emerging India), the S&C coaches and physios need to keep NCA in the loop. But when players are contracted with franchises, BCCI can’t dictate how many matches they will play. As far as bowlers are concerned, it is only four overs,” the source said.

India will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against Ireland on June 5, 2024, at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.
