2) There are no signs of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul so it looks like these 3 batters have been told to focus on ODI and Test Cricket.


3) There is no Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravichandran Ashwin so it means that the team management has looked beyond them in this format.

 

4) Kuldeep Yadav has earned his place back in the T20I team and it will be a good battle between the two leg spinners.

 

5) The selectors and the team management are going ahead with this young set of players till the 2024 T20I World Cup and that is a good sign of not looking back.
