India's prime pacer, Mohammed Shami has completed his heel surgery successfully. As he underwent Achilles tendon surgery, it is expected to take some time for him to recover. However, he is a crucial part of the Indian team now and after the World Cup 2023, he is more likely to be included in the T20 World Cup squad.

Moreover, the Gujarat Titans team have already ruled him out of the tournament considering his surgery. Thus, the fans can hope for Shami to recover early to play in the World Cup 2024. Since the World Cup is in the West Indies and the USA, India will need their best bowler to share his experience with the entire team.

India last won the T20 World Cup in 2007 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Since then, India hasn't won the cup yet. This year the team looks to be strong and the young players are giving their best in all the series they are a part of. Thus, India can hope for a good tournament this time with young players like Shubman Gill, Mohammed Siraj and Rinku Singh.

'Clearly tells me they (youngsters) want to be here' - Rohit Sharma praises youngsters for their intent post the match against England

Skipper Rohit Sharma is quite happy and content with the intentions of the young players currently playing for the team. The team lacks the touch of experience, but as the series has proceeded, it doesn't feel like the players are new to international cricket. The confidence with which the players have played the entire series shows their skills and perseverance. 

Rohit said, "Clearly tells me they (youngsters) want to be here, all the hard work they have done in the past, coming up playing domestic cricket and performing there, coming here it is a big challenge but when I look at them, talk to them and the responses that I get from them is quite encouraging."
