Team India had a disappointing exit from the 2022 T20 World Cup. The men in blue lost in the semis to England. The next opportunity for India to win is in 2024. By then, though, the squad could have a lot of changes. We might even have a lot of them who are part of the current team not playing then. On that note, here, we take a look at three players from the current squad who might not play in the 2024 T20 World Cup for India.
1) Dinesh Karthik
It is clear from the team selection in the last two games that Team India has moved on from Dinesh Karthik. His not being selected for the upcoming T20I series is also a sign that DK may not be in India’s plans for the future.
When he returned to the Indian Team, it always came with the expiry date of the 2022 T20 World Cup. Now that his form also did not help him, it is inevitable that DK may not be in India’s plans for the future. Therefore, he is a part of this list.
2) R Ashwin
#TeamIndia put up a fight but it was England who won the match.

R Ashwin is one of the players from the current squad who might not play in the 2024 T20 World Cup for Team India. India once had a strong spin attack but led by Ashwin, India did not have a great outing in this department.
With Ashwin also being on the wrong side of age, India might want to prioritize Ashwin’s Test career. The likes of Washington Sundar could be given a chance in this regard. India might want to have a leg-spinner as the leader of the spin attack in the future.
3) Mohammed Shami
If not for Jasprit Bumrah’s injury, Shami would have not been a part of the Indian T20I Team. Although his form in the 2022 T20 WC was decent, he might still not get to continue to be a part of the T20I XI.
India has a slew of options available. The management might focus on raw pace and hence, the likes of Kuldeep Sen and Umran Malik could be the frontrunners.
