At the top of the batting order, Jaffer opts for seasoned campaigners like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, with Rohit expected to lead the team. Despite a subdued IPL season for youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jaffer includes him as a backup opener, emphasizing his previous international performances.

Suryakumar Yadav’s aggressive batting earns him a spot in Jaffer’s squad, alongside two wicketkeeper-batsmen, Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson, both in exceptional form during IPL 2024. The selection dilemma between Pant and Samson as the primary wicketkeeper adds depth to the squad.

In the all-rounder department, Jaffer includes Hardik Pandya and Shivam Dube, acknowledging concerns over Pandya’s fitness but banking on his reputation and past performances. Dube’s stellar batting form in IPL 2024 strengthens his case for a starting XI spot.

Designated finishers Rinku Singh and Ravindra Jadeja bring versatility to the squad, with Singh’s proficiency in finishing matches and Jadeja’s dual role as a spin-bowling all-rounder. However, questions linger over Jadeja’s ability to finish games under pressure.

 

Jaffer opts for a varied spin bowling attack, featuring Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, with Kuldeep’s wicket-taking prowess and Chahal’s consistency making them valuable assets.

In the pace bowling department, the trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Arshdeep Singh provide a balanced attack. Bumrah’s experience and skill in death overs make him the leader, while Siraj and Singh offer potency in the powerplay overs.
