In the squad, Samson and Pant are the two wicketkeeping options. Chahal added to the trio consisting of Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, and Kuldeep Yadav, forming a quartet of spin bowlers.

Pant returned to competitive cricket in the ongoing IPL season after a car accident in late December 2022 that sidelined him for a year and a half. He has amassed 251 runs in 11 games, boasting an impressive strike rate of 158.57 in the IPL 2024.

Samson, who is the captain of the Rajasthan Royals, earned a spot back in the national team thanks to a string of consistently brisk scoring performances in the IPL. Chahal also made it to the World Cup squad on the back of his performance in the ongoing tournament, where he has picked 13 wickets in nine innings.

Similarly, Dube's impressive tally of 350 runs at a remarkable strike rate of 172.41 in nine innings in the IPL 2024 has caught the attention of selectors, elevating him to the 15-man squad for the mega event.
