1. Hardik Pandya

The BCCI selectors while selecting the squad, picked Pandya as an all-rounder. India head coach Ravi Shastri has also backed Pandya to come good during the T20 World Cup. It remains to be seen whether he plays as an all-rounder or just a lower-order batter in the team.

2. Eoin Morgan

It won’t be wrong to say that England’s skipper Eoin Morgan has been instrumental in changing the landscape of his country in the white-ball formats. Ever since leadership has been bestowed upon him in late 2014, Morgan has been pivotal in the team winning several matches.

3. David Miller

With a plethora of experience, and by being the senior-most player in the team in terms of matches played, the southpaw would be hoping to convert his 20s and 30s into something substantial.

4. David Warner

The southpaw has not played a T20I since September 2021, yet Finch has backed him, and that might just give the senior player confidence to get back to run-scoring ways.

5. Shadab Khan

Shadab has potential with the bat and has displayed the same for domestic and PSL matches. With Shadab blowing hot and cold with the ball, the PCB can try to experiment with him by sending him up the order.
