Initially, the plan was for the players of teams that did not qualify for the playoffs to leave on May 21. However, there has been a change in plans, and now the first batch will depart on May 25. This will give the players some extra days at home before heading for the tournament.

The squad includes key players such as Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant, and Axar Patel. Those who are part of the IPL final will stay back and leave for New York on May 27. This will allow the team to acclimatize and have quality net sessions before their warm-up game against Bangladesh on June 1.

India will kick off their campaign against Ireland on June 5, followed by a highly anticipated clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on June 9. The team will be looking to start their campaign on a strong note and build momentum as they progress through the tournament.

The squad for the T20 World Cup includes a mix of experience and youth, with players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, and Mohd. Siraj in the mix. The team will be aiming to put in strong performances and make their mark on the global stage.

It will be interesting to see how the Indian team performs in the T20 World Cup, with fans eagerly awaiting their matches against top opponents. The players will be looking to showcase their skills and make their country proud on the biggest stage in T20 cricket.
