India cricketers Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan, and Yashasvi Jaiswal were among the next batch of players to board the flight to New York. They will be joining the Indian contingent in the US ahead of the highly anticipated ICC T20 World Cup 2024, starting on Saturday, June 1.

Chahal, Avesh, and Jaiswal were a part of Rajasthan Royals at the recently concluded 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL). Their team’s campaign ended after the Qualifier 2, where they suffered a defeat at the hands of eventual runners-up SunRisers Hyderabad.

Videos of the three cricketers embarking on their journey to the US went viral as they were seen checking in at the Mumbai airport. Additionally, Avesh, who was on a video call with Rinku Singh and Dhruv Jurel then, turned his phone towards the paparazzi who interacted with the two up-and-coming stars.

Later, Chahal shared a picture with Avesh and Jaiswal from the airport on his official Instagram handle and captioned it:

Team India to kick off their T20 World Cup campaign on June 5

Rohit Sharma-led Team India’s first match at the T20 World Cup 2024 is slated against Ireland at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on June 5. The first batch of Indian players and members of the coaching staff have already reached the host nation.

India’s second match of the World Cup will be the most anticipated one, as the Men in Blue are set to face arch-rivals Pakistan on June 9 at the same venue.

A total of 20 teams will fight for ultimate glory at the global event. The teams have been divided into four groups of five each, with India making it to Group A alongside Pakistan, co-hosts USA, Canada, and Ireland.

The top two teams from all four groups will move further in the tournament and make it to the Super 8 stage, while the other 12 teams will face elimination. The top four teams from the final eight will then make it to the semi-finals for a spot in the final.

England are the defending champions, having won the 2022 edition of the tournament by beating Pakistan in the final. India faced disappointment at the hands of the eventual winners in the semi-finals.
