NDTV's Team Of T20 World Cup 2024: Rohit Sharma Leads, 4 Other Indians Also Make The Cut

Remember the date - June 29 - India lifted their second T20 World Cup - their first in 17 years - on Saturday by beating South Africa in a thriller. The team also bid farewell to the legendary trio - Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja - as the tournament was wrapped up on a high note in Bridgetown's Kensington Oval. Apart from India's fairytale journey, the tournament has also witnessed the rise of the Afghanistan and USA cricket teams and a remarkable redemption of the former champions, West Indies. A few early exits for the likes of New Zealand, Pakistan, and Australia have also made headlines.

As the T20 World Cup 2024 ended more as a bowler-friendly event, let's have a look at who has made it to the tournament's best-playing XI.

Rohit Sharma (captain)

Far from home, in the Caribbean, Rohit Sharma was only one of them who deserved a World Cup win very badly on Saturday. And he lifted the ICC silverware after a seven-run win over South Africa in the final.

With 257 runs in eight innings, the Indian skipper ended up as the highest run-scorer for his side. The Mumbai batter hit three fifties which also included a match-winning 92 against Australia. Having guided India to their second T20 World Cup title, Rohit Sharma will also be leading the Team of the Tournament.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Rahmanullah Gurbaz was one of the major reasons Afghanistan qualified for the semi-finals this year and the beast he turned into with the bat this time was a treat to watch.

The 22-year-old smashed 281 runs in the eight matches at an average of 35.12, wrapping up his World Cup campaign as the highest run-scorer in the tournament. He alongside Rohit at the top order could just be the cherry on the cake.
