In a recent development coming in, the Indian selectors have named the 15-member squad for the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe which will follow in the aftermath of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. The news was confirmed by an official press release earlier today. 

The Men in Blue will visit Harare in the first week of July to participate in a 5-match T20I series against the hosts.

Interestingly, the management has taken the call to name a relatively younger squad in a bid to give the senior players some rest who will be returning once the T20 World Cup 2024 campaign gets over. 

Talented young batter Shubman Gill has been bestowed with the captaincy reins while four youngsters have received their maiden call-up to the national side.

All these youngsters has proved their worth in the shortest format with exemplary performances in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
