Just like in 2023, the Indian Men’s and women’s Cricket teams have a lot to accomplish in the year 2024. The new year seemed to be jam-packed with more than two months long IPL & second edition of WPL along with the T20 World Cup 2024 slated to be played in 2024.

The 2024 looks quite promising as both men’s & women’s cricket teams are all set to be involved in a riveting action throughout the year.

On the other hand, the Women’s team defeated England & Australia in the one-off Test matches.

What are the Goals of the Indian Cricket Team for the 2024 Year

A new calendar year has begun for the Indian Cricket Team & they have several boxes to tick in this new Cricketing Year. Let’s have a look at the Major objectives the Indian Cricket Team will aim to accomplish in the Calendar Year 2024:

  • Young slots need to be groomed for Test Transition

Indian Cricket team was not too convincing in the recently concluded two-match Test series in South Africa. Veteran players such as KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma have performed well in the series but young players are yet to find their mojo in the longest format of cricket. The team management has to look into it & groom the young slot to take the onus as the transition he begun in the Indian Cricket team.

Indian Cricket team’s bowling attack has performed well on the South African soil with Bumrah, Siraj & Mukesh looking in lethal form. They just need to continue bowling on good lines & lengths to excel in the Test format.

  • India needs to outclass the Bazball team on home ground

Another major task that the Indian Cricket team has been assigned is to beat the mighty Baseball team on their home ground. The upcoming five-match Test series is a part of the WTC 2023-2025 cycle & inorder to march up on the WTC Rankings they need to beat the three lions by hook or crook.

Ben Stokes & CO are not the opponents to be taken for granted. The Bazball team has managed to turn their heads around by performing outstandingly during their recent assignments against Pakistan, South Africa, and New Zealand. Their attacking brand of cricket is doing wonders for them & they will aim to continue with them. Rohit Sharma & CO should be ready to cope with the challenges which they will have to face from the bazball team. The Indian team will have to beat England to get back their supremacy in Test format. They need nothing less than a perfect performance to outclass the mighty three lions in the test format which is their strength.

  • Indian team has to win the T20 World Cup 2024

Indian team’s drought for an ICC trophy continues to date. It was back in 2013 that the Indian team lifted an ICC Trophy & since then they have failed to lift any ICC Trophy. The success & legacy of any Cricket team is identified by the number of trophies they win. And India needs some ICC trophies in their kitty to establish their legacy on the global stage.

After failures in the ODI World Cup 2023 & WTC 2021-2023, the Indian team will now have to display a stunning performance in the T20 World Cup 2024 to end their title drought. They haven’t won a single T20 World Cup right from its inauguration & are desperate to lift their maiden Trophy which they can do in this season.

Indian team has recalled veteran players Virat Kohli & Rohit Sharma from the T20I squad for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Afghanistan. This means the duo are very much in Indian team management plans for the T20 World Cup 2024 & will add much-needed experience to a squad full of youngsters. It’s worth seeing who will be there in India’s plan for T20 World Cup 2024.

Meanwhile, Indian team players will gear up for the marquee event by playing in the IPL 2024. The league will stretch 2 months long & will provide a great platform for Indian players to practice & get themselves in the groove for the T20 World Cup 2024.
