T20 World Cup: India odds, fixtures, key players, T20 World Cup record

India suffered a surprise defeat to Australia in last year's 50-over World Cup final, but they are favourites to triumph at the T20 World Cup in June.

India won the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, but their best result at the tournament since then was finishing as runners-up to Sri Lanka in 2014.

Rohit Sharma's men also lost in the final of the 50-over World Cup on home turf last year, but their T20 squad is packed with quality and experience, and they are worthy favourites for June's tournament in the West Indies and the USA.

India captain

Rohit Sharma

A veteran of more than 400 white-ball internationals for India, Rohit Sharma is regarded as one of the best limited-overs openers of his generation.

His 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014 remains the highest score ever made in an ODI, and he is the most successful captain in the history of the IPL, leading Mumbai Indians to the title on five occasions.

India key players

Suryakumar Yadav

Rohit's Mumbai teammate, Suryakumar Yadav, had to wait until the age of 30 to make his international debut, but three years later, he is at the top of the ICC's T20 batting rankings.

The man nicknamed SKY is known for his astonishing range of shots all around the wicket. His T20 international career strike rate is more than 170 runs per 100 balls, and he has scored four centuries in the format, including a stunning 117 off 55 balls against England at Trent Bridge in 2022. 

Jasprit Bumrah

Another Mumbai star hoping to power India to T20 World Cup glory is fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, whose slingy action has tormented international batsmen since his debut in January 2016.

Bumrah's pace, accuracy and ability to nail yorkers at the death make him difficult to score off and his IPL heroics include a memorable performance against Kolkata Knight Riders in 2022 when he took 5-10 from four overs. 

Virat Kohli

India's wealth of batting talent means classy players such as KL Rahul and Shubman Gill only made the reserve list for the T20 World Cup, but veteran Virat Kohli remains a key part of the T20 side.

Kohli has been criticised for his slow scoring rate in the past, but he has upped the ante in this season's IPL, scoring two centuries and six fifties in 14 innings for Royal Challengers Bangalore last term.

As a youngster, Kohli was part of the India team that won the 50-over World Cup in 2011 and the 35-year-old, who averages 51.75 with the bat after 117 T20 internationals, would love to get his hands on another trophy. 

India one to watch

Shivam Dube

India's T20 World Cup run ended with a brutal 10-wicket semi-final defeat to England, who chased down 169 with four overs to spare after a limp batting display from their opponents.

That loss prompted a search for a power-hitter to pep up the Indian middle order, and long-levered left-hander Shivam Dube, thanks to his IPL feats for Chennai Super Kings, has forced his way into the World Cup squad.

Dube hit 35 sixes from 264 balls in the 2023 IPL and has enjoyed similar success in 2024, racking up 26 maximums off just 205 deliveries in his first 11 matches.

India's T20 World Cup prospects

India's T20 World Cup record is underwhelming given the country's vast talent pool but they have to be respected as they chase a first title since 2007.

Suryakumar is a T20 batting gem at number three while Dube, the fit-again Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Hardik Pandya add power to the middle-order and ace fast bowler Bumrah is backed up by a host of top-class spin options.

India's path to glory may be slightly complicated by the fact that they play their first three group games, including a clash with Pakistan, in unfamiliar conditions in New York, but they are serious trophy contenders.
