“The T20I team would be purely based on IPL performers and one can expect the likes of Rinku Singh and Jitesh Sharma to make the cut in the final squad, as teams in the past lacked finishers,” claimed a PTI report. 

Meanwhile, Ruturaj Gaikwad is also set to regain his place back in the T20I squad after his heroics with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in IPL 2023.
