Eoin Morgan Selects The Top Contenders For The 2024 T20 World Cup

Ex-England Captain Eoin Morgan has chosen India as his top pick to win the forthcoming 2024 T20 World Cup. The major tournament is set to take place in the West Indies and the USA, commencing on June 1.

Morgan is of the opinion that the Men in Blue’s robustness and extensive roster render them the most formidable team in the tournament, even amidst injuries. He expressed this view during a panel conversation on Sky Sports, alongside ex-cricketer Nasser Hussain and Michael Atherton.

“For me, the strongest side even with injuries throughout the tournament is India without a doubt,” Morgan said. “The strength and depth is absolutely incredible at the moment. We are talking about the players who missed out in the squad of 15 because of the quality they possess.”

“They are favorites for me. The quality that they have on paper if they produce it I think they can beat anybody quite in the tournament.”


It’s noteworthy that India clinched the T20 World Cup last in its inaugural edition in 2007 under MS Dhoni’s captaincy. The youthful Indian squad defeated arch-rivals Pakistan by five runs in Johannesburg to secure the title.

Since then, India’s T20 World Cup journey has been disappointing. They were eliminated in the previous edition of the tournament in Australia, suffering a 10-wicket defeat to eventual champions England in the semi-finals.
