Indian Stars’ Performance In IPL After T20 WC Squad Selection: Rohit’s Form A Concern, Hardik A Positive | Cricket News

The Indian cricket team’s 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup 2024 to be held in the West Indies and the United States was announced on Tuesday, April 30. Since then, all the 15 players selected for India’s squad for the T20 World Cup have played at least one game for their respective franchises in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season. Here we take a look at how these Indian players have performed since their selection in the T20 World Cup squad.

Rohit Sharma (captain)
Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma has registered a string of low scores since the announcement of the 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup 2024. Mumbai Indians’ star opening batter scored just four runs off five balls against Lucknow Super Giants on the very day the squad was announced. Two days later, Rohit managed 12-ball 11 against Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede. The right-handed opener was once again dismissed cheaply as he scored four runs against SunRisers Hyderabad in MI’s previous outing on May 6. Overall, Rohit has scored just 19 runs in three matches since the squad announcement.

Yashasvi Jaiswal
Flamboyant left-handed batter Yashasvi Jaiswal celebrated his inclusion in India’s T20 World Cup 2024 squad with a scintillating fifty against SunRisers Hyderabad. Chasing 202, Rajasthan Royals’ dashing opener slammed 67 off 40 balls, laced with seven fours and two sixes. Despite his brilliant half-century, RR lost the game by just one run in Hyderabad. Meanwhile, Jaiswal scored just four runs against Delhi Capitals in RR’s previous fixture. Since the squad announcement, the 22-year-old has scored 71 runs in two games.

Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has been in magnificent form in the ongoing Indian Premier League. Opening the batting for Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Kohli continued his good run after he scored a 27-ball 42 against Gujarat Titans before scoring a 92 against Punjab Kings. But, it also has to be kept in mind that Virat was dropped twice during his stay at the crease. Kohli was also given apt support by Rajat Patidar who scored a half-century to help RCB put 241/7 on the board.

Suryakumar Yadav
India’s swashbuckling batter Suryakumar Yadav has produced some outstanding knocks since the squad announcement for the T20 World Cup. Mumbai Indians’ accomplished batter scored a match-winning hundred against SunRisers Hyderabad in their last game. MI were reduced to 31/3 in 4.1 overs while chasing SRH’s 173/8. Batting at number four, Suryakumar smashed 102 not out off just 51 balls to guide MI to a seven-wicket win at Wankhede. Earlier, the right-handed batter hammered a 35-ball 56 against Kolkata Knight Riders while other MI batters struggled on that night. However, he was dismissed for 10 against Lucknow Super Giants on the day the squad was announced. Overall, Suryakumar has scored 168 runs in three games since the squad announcement.

Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper)
Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant has been one of the standout wicketkeeper-batters in IPL 2024. The hard-hitting southpaw has amassed 413 runs in 12 games at an average of 41.30 and a strike rate of 156.43. He has registered three fifties this season. Since India’s T20 World Cup squad announcement, Pant has featured in just one game against Rajasthan Royals in Delhi. Batting at No.5, the southpaw scored 15 off 13 balls against RR before he fell to Yuzvendra Chahal. His cameo guided DC to a massive 221/8, which they later defended and won by 20 runs.

Sanju Samson (wicket-keeper)
Sanju Samson pipped KL Rahul to be included in India’s 15-member T20 World Cup. Following the announcement, Rajasthan Royals’ captain was dismissed for a duck against SunRisers Hyderabad in Hyderabad. However, Samson soon bounced back against Delhi Capitals in RR’s previous outing. Chasing 222, Samson led from the front as he smashed 86 off just 46 balls which kept RR in the hunt. His knock included eight fours and six maximums. Despite Samson’s brilliant knock, RR fell short by 20 runs.

Hardik Pandya
MI captain Hardik Pandya has produced few impressive bowling performances since the squad announcement for the T20 World Cup. On the day the squad was announced, Hardik was dismissed for a golden duck against Lucknow Super Giants. Defending 144, India’s star all-rounder later bagged the important wickets of KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda to finish with figures of 2/26. Hardik then once again claimed two wickets against Kolkata Knight Riders despite conceding 44 runs in his four overs. In the batting department, he continued to struggle as he scored just one run at Wankhede. In their last game, Hardik took three wickets for 31 runs to help MI restrict SRH to 173/8. MI later chased down the target in 17.2 overs courtesy Suryakumar’s ton.

Shivam Dube
Chennai Super Kings’ Shivam Dube has suffered a shocking loss of form since his inclusion in India’s T20 World Cup squad. The hard-hitting left-hander was dismissed for a duck in the very first ball against Punjab Kings in Chennai before being dismissed for 13-ball 21 against Gujarat in Ahmedabad. On the positive front, Dube dismissed Jonny Bairstow in Chennai to bag his first wicket in IPL 2024, when CSK took on PBKS in Dharamsala.

Ravindra Jadeja
India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has had a mixed bag since the announcement of the 15-member squad for T20 World Cup 2024. The 35-year-old scored just two runs off four deliveries and claimed no wickets against Punjab Kings in Chennai. Later in Dharamsala, Jadeja was adjudged the Player of the Match for his all-round performance against Punjab Kings. Jadeja then scored a 10-ball 18 against Gujarat as CSK ended up on the losing side.

Axar Patel
Another spin-bowling all-rounder Axar Patel has contributed with both bat and ball in the only game that he has played since the squad announcement. Batting at No.4, Delhi Capitals’ all-rounder Axar scored 15 off 10 balls against Rajasthan Royals to help his side post 221/8 in their 20 overs. Later, Axar dismissed Jos Buttler to finish with figures of 1/25 to guide the Capitals to a 20-run victory in Delhi.

Kuldeep Yadav
Left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav has been one of the standout bowlers in IPL 2024. The 29-year-old has bagged 14 wickets in nine matches at an average of 20.64 and an economy of 8.25. Since India’s T20 World Cup squad announcement, Kuldeep has featured in just one game for Delhi Capitals. Defending 222 against RR, Kuldeep dismissed Donovan Ferreira and Ravichandran Ashwin in the 18th over to power DC to a convincing victory in the end.

Yuzvendra Chahal
Following his inclusion in India’s T20 World Cup squad, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been expensive in both the games that he has played since the announcement. SunRisers Hyderabad batters smashed Chahal to all parts of the ground as he conceded 62 runs in his four overs in Hyderabad. Later against Delhi Capitals, Chahal took the important wicket of Rishabh Pant. However, the 33-year-old conceded 48 runs in his four overs.

Jasprit Bumrah
Indian cricket team’s bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has continued his good form even after the squad announcement for the T20 World Cup. Bumrah produced an economical spell of none for 17 against Lucknow Super Giants while defending just 144. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, Bumrah was the wrecker-in-chief for MI as he picked up three wickets for 18 runs in his 3.5 overs to bowl them out for 169. India’s right-arm pacer once again bowled an economical spell against an in-form SunRisers Hyderabad’s batting line-up. Bumrah finished with figures of 1/23. He is the current Purple Cap holder in IPL 2024 with 18 wickets in 12 matches.

Mohammed Siraj
Indian fast bowler Mohammed Siraj has featured in two games since the announcement of the 15-member squad for T20 World Cup 2024. Playing for Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Siraj bowled an impressive spell against last season’s finalist Gujarat Titans at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on May 4. Siraj finished with figures of 2/29 to help bundle out GT for 147 in 19.3 overs. Siraj then picked up 3 wickets for 43 runs against Punjab Kings in Dharamsala.

Arshdeep Singh
Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh has produced a few lacklustre performances since his inclusion in India’s T20 World Cup squad. While Punjab Kings’ star pacer Arshdeep dismissed Chennai Super Kings captain Ruturaj Gaikwad, he conceded 52 runs in his four overs in Chennai. Later in Dharamsala against the same opponents, Arshdeep was once again expensive as he gave away 42 runs in his four overs. Even against RCB, Arshdeep leaked 41 runs in just 3 overs.

    RR vs MI Live Score: Costly misses

    Nehal Wadhera dropped a catch from Yashasvi Jaiswal and the youngster made MI pay with two massive sixes. Hardik Pandya into the attack but hardly any change as Sanju Samson heaved him for a six over long-on.

  • 23:05 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: It’s raining sixes

    Two sixes off Mohammad Nabi and this is just too easy for Rajasthan Royals. Jaiswal started it with a huge maximum followed by Sanju showing off his skills. MI have no answer to this onslaught and the dropped catches are not really helping.

    MI 110/1 after 11 overs

  • 23:02 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Jaiswal 50

    Match resumes after the rain delay and RR are looking as dominant as before the break. RR are in the driver’s seat and with no overs wasted, MI will have to produce something special to make a comeback.

  • 22:35 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Further delay

    RR vs MI Live Score: End of powerplay overs

    6 overs gone and RR are 61 for no loss. Yashasvi Jaiswal is looking his old self and Jos Buttler is providing ample support. Hardik Pandya made a complete mess of an easy save and the ball went for a boundary as MI are left wondering what they could have done different.

  • 21:56 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: RR off to a flyer

    Yashasvi Jaiswal seems like he has found his lost form and he is looking pretty good at the moment. Add the in-form Jos Buttler in the equation and the duo has dominated proceedings till now.

  • 21:46 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: MI pacers on song

    RR 21/0 after 2.5 overs

  • 21:38 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Good start for RR

    Hardik Pandya opened the bowling for Mumbai Indians and Jos Buttler welcomed him with two boundaries. There has been a lot of criticism over his usage of pacers and he will hope the move to not go with Bumrah or Coetzee will not prove costly.

    RR 11/0 after 1 over

  • 21:36 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Surprise debut

    Nuwan Thushara is handed the MI cap and he is all set to make his debut midway into this match. A brilliant pace option for MI and he can prove to be a big asset for the side. A special ‘100’ jersey for Hardik as well on a special occasion.

  • 21:10 (IST)

  • 20:57 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Wadhera departs

    Nehal Wadhera slammed three big sixes but he missed out on his half-century by just a run! Another wicket for Trent Boult but MI are in the perfect position to go for 200. Hardik Pandya is the new batter and all eyes will be on the MI captain.

  • 20:49 (IST)

  • 20:40 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: It’s raining sixes

    Nehal Wadhera joins the party and it has not been a good night for Avesh Khan. Two massive sixes off the fast bowler and MI are looking at a good total right now. However, this needs to continue in order for MI to reach somewhere around 170-180.

    MI 120/4 after 14 overs

  • 20:30 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: MI fightback continues

    The match has slowed down quite a bit but MI have slowly but steadily rebuilding their innings. Tilak Varma is leading the charge on 35 with Nehal Wadhera playing a solid supporting role.

  • 20:23 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: 10 overs gone

    10 overs gone and Mumbai Indians are 72 for the loss of 4 wickets. A horrible start with three quick wickets but MI have fought back a bit. Tilak Varma is looking in fine touch and with Hardik Pandya and Tim David to go, the end needs to be brilliant for the five-time champions.

    First bowler in IPL to…

    RR vs MI Live Score: Chahal scripts history

    Wicket No 200 in the IPL for Yuzvendra Chahal! A single caught and bowled to dismiss Mohammad Nabi and the celebration says it all. A brilliant feat for a brilliant bowler who is now making a strong case for himself ahead of the T20 World Cup.

    MI 56/4 after 8 overs

  • 20:06 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Nabi fights back

    6,4,4 – Avesh Khan was not great with his line and Mohammad Nabi punished him with one six following by two boundaries. This is an important partnership for MI in the context of this match and his aggressive batting will be good news for Hardik and the team management.

    MI 47/3 after 5.3 overs

  • 19:57 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Here’s what MI skipper Sanju Samson said at the toss

    “We had a slightly different idea about the toss so it’s okay. You know the nature of the tournament, it’s a very long tournament, we had a five day break and we discussed about our plans, it’s about focusing about the system and the process. We have played lots of games here, we know how the wicket behaves. MI are known to come back hard in the tournament so we have to play well. We have had Sandeep Sharma back to our side and Kuldeep Sen misses out.”

  • 19:05 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Here’s what MI skipper Hardik Pandya said at the toss

    “We are gonna bat first, looks like a good wicket. It’s a very surreal feeling to play the 100th game for the franchise, started my journey with MI, I’m very grateful. We got three changes – Nuwan, Wadhera and Piyush Chawla come in.”

  • 19:00 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Toss

    Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya won the toss and opted to bat against Rajasthan Royals in their IPL 2024 match on Monday. 

  • 18:51 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: Pitch report

    “There’s been four games (at this venue this season), teams batting first have won twice, teams fielding first have also won twice. Spinners haven’t necessarily dominated over seamers. When you look at the team scores, they have been around 180-190, high, but not too high at the same time. Tonight, we are in the middle as well – boundary sizes square – 67m either side, straight – 76m. This pitch looks very very beautiful, it’s dry, it’s hard and it’s even. Why isn’t there a score over 200? I think one of the reasons is players presently like bounce and there’s not a lot of moisture in this pitch,” said Natalie Germanos and Brian Lara.  

  • 18:28 (IST)

    RR vs MI Live Score: RR’s strong batting

    For RR, Riyan Parag has been the batter of the season. The young Assam batter has reinvented himself and his 318 runs is one of the reasons why RR find themselves at the top of the pecking order. While the batting has revolved around him, skipper Sanju Samson too has produced some fine knocks for the team, aggregating 276 runs so far.

But a few guys are coming out after months out of the game. Once we move ahead in the Super Fours, there’s no room for complacency.
