Indian players express T20 World Cup excitement ahead of departure

Two of India's potentially key players at the T20 World Cup, Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant, posted pictures on X (formerly Twitter) with some of their teammates and coaching staff. They expressed their excitement ahead of departure for the T20 World Cup 2024.

Here's what Kuldeep posted:

"The journey begins..."

Rishabh Pant expressed his excitement to be back with the Indian team and here's what he posted:
