Former Indian Cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who is also the T20 World Cup's brand ambassador, recently picked his top favourite contenders for the T20 World Cup Final, saying that three teams, except Australia, will have a tough fight for the title. He also named his preferred run-getter in the tournament as he chose Virat Kohli to have a solid campaign, citing that his IPL 2024 season has been nothing less than spectacular.

The Indian Cricket Team have an arduous task as they will aim to end their ICC title drought. The last time that they were the Champions was under MS Dhoni's reign, and India's Champions Trophy win in 2013 is the last title that the team won, and it has been over ten years since they have won the title.

After narrowly missing out on the ICC Men's ODI World Up 2024, the Indian Cricket Team will begin their redemption arc, as the Rohit-Sharma-led Team India will open their campaign against Ireland after winning the warm-ups with a wide margin against Bangladesh.
