Former India player Aakash Chopra said that IPL 2024 presents Ravi Bishnoi with a great opportunity to cement his place in India’s T20 World Cup squad. With 16 wickets in 14 innings at an economy rate of 7.74, Bishnoi was the Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) highest wicket-taker in IPL 2023 as well. He will likely compete with Kuldeep Yadav for potentially a lone wrist-spinner’s position in India’s T20 World Cup
squad as well.

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra said, “It’s another opportunity for Ravi Bishnoi because it has become a close contest as you have Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja), Axar (Patel), Kuldeep (Yadav) and Ravi Bishnoi. All four spinners might not be able to go to the World Cup. So that could be a point of discussion. I will be thinking that it’s a massive opportunity for Ravi Bishnoi, and then Yash Thakur. Yash Thakur did well and then missed a lot of cricket. Mohsin Khan – again a wonderful opportunity.”

The former India opener further added that Yash Thakur and Mohsin Khan will also want to t use their chances. Thakur scalped 13 wickets at an economy rate of 9.07 in nine IPL 2023 games as well. And, KL Rahul will reportedly bat in the middle order for LSG in IPL 2024 as well.

“The biggest opportunity could be for KL Rahul because if you see the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, you have Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav. So you won’t get to bat in the top four. He said earlier as well that he is ready to bat down the order. This is an opportunity because I feel whoever wants to audition as a wicketkeeper, has to bat lower down the order for his franchise. Can he do that? This IPL might tell that,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
