T20 World Cup: 10 players in India's current team are over 30, the average age of the 2007 champions was 23 years

Posted on 30th May 2024 12:43 pm by rohit kumar

There are only a few days left for the T20 World Cup to begin. All the teams are busy preparing for it. The Indian team has also reached New York and has also started training sessions. Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, is set to win the T20 World Cup title for the first time since 2007. Hitman is among those players who lifted the T20 World Cup trophy with the Indian team in 2007. Now he will inspire his players to lift this trophy for the second time. India has not won any ICC trophy since 2013. In such a situation, Rohit and company will also come out to end the 11-year drought of the ICC trophy. The last time Team India won the Champions Trophy was in 2013 under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.


Comparison of Team India of 2007 and 2024 T20 World Cup


One thing that is worth seeing in this T20 World Cup is the age of the players of Team India. The most experienced Team India has gone to play in this World Cup so far. The average age of the current Indian team is 30.3 years. In this team of 15 players, there are 10 players whose age is 30 or more. When India won this trophy last time i.e. in 2007, a new Indian team had arrived at that time. No player on that team was more than 30 years old. The average age of the Indian team that became champion in 2007 was 23 years. The oldest player of that team was India's current chief selector Ajit Agarkar. He was 29 years old then.


Age of the Indian team that became champion in 2007


The 2007 champion team had two players aged between 18 and 20 years, nine players aged between 21 and 25 years, and four players aged between 26 and 29 years. At that time, apart from Agarkar, the captain MS Dhoni was 26 years old, Yuvraj was 25 years old, Virender Sehwag was 28 years old, Gautam Gambhir was 25 years old, Rohit Sharma was 20 years old, Robin Uthappa was 21 years old, Dinesh Karthik was 22 years old, Yusuf Pathan was 24 years old, Irfan Pathan was 22 years old, Harbhajan Singh was 27 years old, Piyush Chawla was 18 years old, RP Singh was 21 years old, Sreesanth was 24 years old and Joginder Sharma was 23 years old. Then, under Dhoni's leadership, the young energy defeated some big teams like Pakistan, England, Australia, and South Africa in their campaign for the trophy.


Team India's age for the 2024 T20 World Cup


At the same time, there is no player below 20 years of age in Team India who went to play in the World Cup this year. There is only one player between the age of 21 and 25 years. At the same time, there are eight players aged 26 to 30. There are four players aged 31 to 35 and one player above 36. Captain Rohit himself is the oldest player in this team. He is 37 years old. At the same time, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja are 35-35 years old. Suryakumar Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are 33-33 years old. Vice-captain Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dubey, Jasprit Bumrah, Axar Patel, and Mohammad Siraj are 30-30 years old. Kuldeep Yadav and Sanju Samson are 29-29 years old. At the same time, Rishabh Pant is 26 years old, Arshdeep Singh is 25 years old and Yashasvi Jaiswal is 22 years old. It will be interesting to see whether this experienced Team India can win the title or not. All eyes will be on Virat and Rohit

No one is even close to Indian captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in terms of experience and runs in the T20 World Cup. This will be Rohit's ninth and Virat's sixth T20 World Cup. Rohit (39) and Virat (27) have together played 66 T20 World Cup matches. Rohit, a member of the 2007 World Cup winning team, will have a unique record of playing all nine T20 World Cups. Both Rohit and Virat have experience of playing in the West Indies as well. The slow pitches there will suit the batting of both. Especially if Virat gets his eyes set, he can play a big role in every match. After the T20 World Cup held in Australia, it was not certain that both of them would play in this World Cup, but the selectors gave preference to the experience of both and included them in the team once again. In such a situation, both of them also know that they have a big responsibility and both would like to cash in on this opportunity with both hands.
