The T20 World Cup is just around the corner, and India has not won it since MS Dhoni lifted the trophy in the inaugural edition. The men in blue will certainly look to change this in the upcoming world cup. They will go into this tournament with their best possible squad.

Many uncapped players have come under the radar for this world cup. This is because of their brilliant performance in the IPL this year. The IPL has provided a brilliant platform for youngsters to showcase their talent. Whoever performs consistently might get an Indian call-up very soon.
