ICC T20 World Cup 2024: Team of the Tournament Announced

Following the conclusion of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has unveiled its prestigious Team of the Tournament. This elite selection features the standout performers who lit up the tournament with their exceptional skills and match-winning performances.

Notable Absences

Despite some strong performances, no Pakistani player made it into the tournament’s best XI. This exclusion has sparked discussions among cricket enthusiasts and analysts alike, considering Pakistan’s rich history in T20 cricket.

Dominance of Indian Players

The team is dominated by Indian cricketers, with six players making the cut, showcasing India’s impressive depth and talent in the shortest format of the game. Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian team, has also been named the captain of the ICC Team of the Tournament. Sharma’s leadership and consistent performances at the top of the order were pivotal to India’s campaign.

Jasprit Bumrah, who was named the Player of the Tournament, leads the bowling attack. His remarkable ability to bowl lethal yorkers and his consistent wicket-taking made him a crucial player for India. All-rounder Hardik Pandya, known for his explosive batting and handy bowling, also secured his place in the team. Suryakumar Yadav, with his innovative stroke play, Arshdeep Singh, with his impressive left-arm pace, and Axar Patel, with his all-round capabilities, complete the Indian contingent.

Afghanistan’s Strong Presence

Afghanistan’s cricketing prowess was on full display, earning three spots in the team. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, the dynamic wicketkeeper-batsman, grabbed the second opener’s slot alongside Rohit Sharma. Rashid Khan, one of the best T20 bowlers globally, was a no-brainer selection due to his consistent match-winning performances. Fazalhaq Farooqi, a key player in Afghanistan’s pace attack, also made the team, highlighting the country’s growing strength in cricket.

Contributions from West Indies and Australia

Nicholas Pooran of the West Indies and Marcus Stoinis of Australia were also selected. Pooran’s aggressive batting and ability to turn matches around single-handedly earned him a spot in the middle order. Marcus Stoinis, with his all-round capabilities, provided balance to the team, making him an invaluable asset.
