India vs Zimbabwe 2024 Full New T20 Squad and Players List

Shubman Gill announced as the Captain as we look at the full new squad and players list for India vs Zimbabwe 2024 T20 series.

It’s been two days since India registered a historic triumph in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, and I am sure, just like me, most of the Indians must have slept peacefully. It still feels surreal given India won from an unrealistic situation South Africa needed a run-a-ball 30 with dangerous Klaasen and Miller at the crease. From there, the trio of Bumrah, Hardik, and Arshdeep won it for India – simply surreal.

While we are still in Post World Cup hangover, the Indian team is already geared up for the next assignment, the T20 series vs Zimbabwe. The young Indian team (most of the senior players being rested) will be touring Zimbabwe for a 5-match T20 series from July 6. The team looks like an extended version of IPL 2024 key players with Shubman Gill at the helm.

It’s a great opportunity for Shubman Gill to stamp his authority as the captain of the Indian team. It is also a great opportunity for young Indian players, who are looking to make a mark in International cricket. So, which players did the BCCI select for India vs Zimbabwe 2024 T20 series? Well, let’s look at the full new squad and players list, and find out the best playing 11 for India vs Zimbabwe 2024 T20 series. 

India vs Zimbabwe 2024 Full New Squad and Players List

Batters – Rinku Singh, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill (c) & Yashasvi Jaiswal

Starting with the batters, Team India have four names in the squad in the form of Rinku Singh, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Of the four batters, only Yashasvi Jaiswal is a part of the current T20 team, and the other three batters along with Jaiswal will be beginning a new chapter after the retirement of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. 

WKs – Dhruv Jurel & Sanju Samson

Talking about wicket-keepers, the Indian team will see a new name, Dhruv Jurel in the absence of India’s first-choice wicket-keeper, Rishabh Pant. Dhruv had already made his debut for India in Test matches. And with Pant not there, he seems a good choice in the team alongside Sanju Samson, who will now play a more senior role. 

All-rounders – Abhishek Sharma, Riyan Parag, Shivam Dube & Washington Sundar

Coming to all-rounders, India lost Nitish Reddy even before the tournament had begun. Nitish has suffered an injury just before the tournament, and in his place, India added back Shivam Dube, who was initially rested in the team. Alongside Dube, India also selected Abhishek Sharma, Riyan Parag, and Washington Sundar as the three all-rounders in the team.  

Bowlers – Avesh Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar, Ravi Bishnoi & Tushar Deshpande

Talking about the bowlers, It looks like a completely revamped attack with Avesh Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar, and Tushar Deshpande in the pace department, and Ravi Bishnoi in the spin department. While Mukesh and Bishnoi do have good experience in the Indian team, Avesh, Khaleel, and Tushar are relatively new, and will be tested in the team. 

India vs Zimbabwe 2024 Full T20 Squad for Indian Team:

Batters: Rinku Singh, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill & Yashasvi Jaiswal
