T20 World Cup: India warm-up match

India and Pakistan will take the front stage in Group A of the T20 World Cup. Aside from the archrivals, neighbouring countries the United States and Canada, as well as Ireland, will compete. Here's a preview of how things could turn out. Arch-rivals India and Pakistan will headline Group A of the T20 World Cup 2024. The two teams, which have one of the fiercest rivalries in cricket, will clash in the tournament's group round on June 9 at Nassau County's stunning new stadium in New York.

The tournament's Group A will also include co-hosts the United States, who stunned the globe with a series victory over Bangladesh just before the globe Cup. Bangladesh, captained by Shakib Al Hasan, were given a rude awakening regarding the quality of competition when they were blanked 2-0 in their first two encounters. The USA continued to mock Bangladesh in the third and final T20I, fielding their second-string squad. They eventually won the series, 2-1. Canada, the United States' neighbour, and the talented European team Ireland are also in the same group. Ireland has the ability to defeat the strongest teams in international cricket, as they did in the lead-up to the World Cup by defeating Pakistan in the first match of a three-game T20I series.

While there has been considerable discussion about picking the finest Indian team for the T20 World Cup, a look at the squad reveals that it has the ability to win the competition. India has some outstanding first-timers in the World Cup, including Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Shivam Dube, who would be eager to assist India end its 11-year ICC title drought if given the opportunity. The side's spin-bowling contingent may be the strongest among all teams. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have rejoined in the lineup, although it is unlikely that they would play together in the starting XI.

Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Siraj.
