Cricketers To Watch Out For In 2024? 3 Most Probable Candidates To Captain India

Former England captain Nasser Hussain chose an Indian superstar and a former Pakistan captain as the players to watch in 2024. Nasser revealed his picks, Virat Kohli and Babar Azam, in a video uploaded by the International Cricket Council (ICC). “There is no doubt that my first one is a megastar. Kohli, Virat. He clearly had a terrific 2023 and World Cup. We didn’t pay attention to his batting performance because of all the records he broke and the attention he received.

Virat scored 671 runs at an average of 55.61 in eight Tests this year, including two hundreds and two fifties in 12 innings. His highest possible score was 186. Virat scored 1,377 runs in 27 One-Day Internationals this year, at an average of 72.47 and a strike rate of 99.13, with six hundreds and eight fifties in just 24 innings. His highest possible score was 166. Finally, Virat scored 2,048 runs at an average of 66.06 in 35 international matches and 36 innings this year, with eight hundreds and ten fifties.

Speaking of Babar, Nasser stated that the Pakistan team needs its former captain to score big this year, which also includes the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, which will be hosted in the West Indies and the United States in June. Pakistan last made the finals in 2022, but lost against England.

I believe this is a pivotal year for him and Pakistan. He has renounced captaincy, which may be a weight off his shoulders. The most important thing he can do for Pakistan cricket is score a lot of runs. They require him to acquire runs. The Caribbean will host a T20 World Cup. They previously advanced to the finals. They will need their ex-skipper to provide a strong performance.

Babar scored 204 runs at an average of 22.66 in five Tests this year, with no fifties. His highest point total was 41. Babar scored 1,065 runs at an average of 46.30 in 25 One-Day Internationals this year, including two centuries and ten fifties. His highest possible score was 151. Babar scored 130 runs in four innings at an average of 43.33 in five T20Is this year, with the best score of 101*. Babar scored 1,399 runs at an average of 39.97 in 35 matches this year, including three centuries and ten fifties. His highest possible score is 151.

3 Most Probable Candidates To Captain India

The Rohit Sharma-led squad triumphed in all formats this year, reaching the finals of both major International Cricket Council (ICC) events, the World Test Championship and the ODI World Cup. Unfortunately, India was defeated in both finals, both times by the same opponent, Australia. The heartbreaking loss sent shockwaves across the country, prompting Rohit Sharma to take a hiatus from cricket for a brief period of time.

However, as we saw Suryakumar captain the Indian side in T20I’s, here are the three potential players who can be seen in the captaincy role in the future:

Shubman Gill:

The recently named Gujarat Titans skipper is a familiar figure to Indian fans. Gill is no longer considered an upcoming star; instead, he is one of India’s superstar cricketers who will lead the Blues in the next 10-15 years.

Ravindra Jadeja:

The Indian all-rounder has been a consistent performer in the team for more than a decade, with his dependable bowling, fielding, and handy batting saving India numerous times. In the IPL, the all-rounder captained the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and is a likely candidate to captain Team India.

Shreyas Iyer:

The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain has previous experience as an IPL captain and has often proven good with his tactics and changes, and given the fact that if he manages to keep his spot in the team and consistently perform, we might see the Indian batter take over the captaincy of the Indian side in the not-too-distant future.
