ICC T20 World Cup 2024: What Did The Selectors Do? Why Was The Next Captain After Rohit Sharma Dropped From The Team? Big news cricket fans! The BCCI announced the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup 2024, and there’s one glaring omission that has everyone scratching their heads.

Who’s Missing?

None other than KL Rahul, the player considered the frontrunner to succeed Rohit Sharma as captain!

But why?

That’s the big question. Rahul’s been on fire this IPL season, smashing 406 runs in 10 matches, including a century and 3 fifties. With a strike rate of 142, he’s even in the top 5 for the Orange Cap!

Plus, Experience Matters, Right?

Absolutely! Rahul’s a seasoned player with over 50 T20I matches for India and 2 T20 centuries under his belt.

So why sideline him then?

There Could Be A Few Reasons:

  • Fitness: Rahul had a recent injury scare, maybe the selectors aren’t convinced he’s 100%.
  • Team Balance: India has other openers in top form – Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, and Deepak Hooda. Maybe it’s a team balance call.
  • Giving Others a Chance: Rahul’s had his opportunities. Perhaps the selectors want to see what younger players can do.

But Rahul fans aren’t happy!

Social media is buzzing with questions about this omission.
