As it was obvious, Rohit Sharma will lead the India World Cup squad for the event. Key players like Virat Kholi, Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and Siraj are also part of the Indian Team. Shubman Gill is not part of this squad for the event, which marks a question for the Indian Selection Committee.

Yuzvendra Chahal who was not part of the Blue team for a long duration was also added to the squad after a great performance in IPL 2024. Along with him, other spinners like Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, and Axar Patel will also wear blue shirts.

Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant are the two wicketkeepers in the Indian squad.

Pant will make a comeback to international cricket for the first time since a near-fatal car crash in December 2022.

He returned to cricket at the ongoing Indian Premier League, where he has notched up 398 runs in 11 matches with a best of 88 unbeaten.
