The BCCI selection committee is set to meet in Ahmedabad with the aim of coming to a decision about India's T20 World Cup squad and who will be making the trip to the West Indies and the US for the upcoming ICC event. Reports came in on April 29, Monday that the meeting was all set to happen in Ahmedabad with the squad announcement deadline being on May 1. While there is no confirmation if the squad will be announced on Tuesday, we can expect some big calls to be made during the meeting.

There are quite a few talking points that would be expected during the meeting, ranging from the wicketkeeper's spot to the reserves who should be travelling with the squad for the ICC tournament. Let's take a look at them one by one as we get closer to knowing the stars representing India at the T20 World Cup.

Hardik has scored 197 runs in 9 matches so far for MI at a strike-rate of 151.53 and an average of 24.63. However, he has been floating up and down the order, which may not be expected from him during the T20 World Cup as he would be expected to come in at No.5 or No.6.

Hardik's bowling has also been a concern as the MI skipper has conceded 227 runs from the 19 overs he has bowled, with an economy rate over 11 and an average of 56.75. He only has 4 wickets to his name during this time and the numbers don't paint a pretty picture at the moment.

The openers and the Kohli conundrum

A certain Virat Kohli is rolling back the years with his batting in IPL 2024, scoring 500 runs and leading the Orange Cap charts. Statistically, in terms of strike-rate and average, this is Kohli's best season after his 2016 heroics where he scored 973 runs.
