All Teams Best Playing 11 for Super 8

All Teams Best Playing 11 for Super 8

Spinners set to be the focus as we look at the confirmed playing 11 for all 8 teams for the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup 2024.

3 weeks of grueling and competitive cricket in the T20 World Cup 2024, and we are now moving our ship to the Super 8 stage. The tournament started with 20 teams, but is now left with only 8 Teams in the form of India, Australia, West Indies, Afghanistan, South Africa, England, Bangladesh, and the United States of America.

The group stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 saw matches being played in USA as well as West Indies. While teams like India, South Africa, Pakistan, etc., played entirely in USA, teams like Australia, England, West Indies, etc., played entirely in West Indies so far. But with the USA leg now completed, all matches going forward shall be played in West Indies.

While teams already playing in the West Indies may not have trouble adapting to the pitches, teams like India, USA, and South Africa may face difficulty. The pitches in USA were completely on the slower side with great assistance to pacers. However, pitches in West Indies may not be as slow as USA, and will also assist spinners more. So, what changes will the teams make to their strongest playing 11 for the Super 8 stage? Well, let’s find out. 

T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 Stage Best Playing 11 for All Teams

United States Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Steven Taylor
  2. Monank Patel (c&wk)
  3. Andries Gous
  4. Aaron Jones
  5. Nitish Kumar 
  6. Corey Anderson
  7. Harmeet Singh
  8. Nosthusha Kenjige
  9. Ali Khan
  10. Jasdeep Singh
  11. Saurabh Netravalkar

USA shocked everyone when they defeated Pakistan in the Group stage. The team has seen some really wonderful batting as well bowling performances in the Group Stage. Overall, from their last playing 11 vs India, Captain Monank Patel and the spinner Nosthusha Kenjige should be back in the playing 11. The pitches in West Indies assist spinners, so an additional spinner may be needed for a pacer.

Bangladesh Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Tanzin Hasan
  2. Litton Das (wk)
  3. Najmul Shanto (c)
  4. Shakib Al Hasan
  5. Towhid Hridoy
  6. Mahmadullah
  7. Jaker Ali
  8. Rishad Hossain
  9. Tanzim Sakib
  10. Mustafizur Rahman
  11. Taskin Ahmed

Bangladesh are one of the three teams that surprised everyone with their performance in the Group Stage. Having qualified for Super 8, Bangladesh may not make any changes to their playing 11. They have an ideal 3-pace and 3-spin combination, and should stick to that on West Indies pitches. However, the batting needs to improve for Bangladesh to have a big impact in the Super 8 stage.

Afghanistan Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk)
  2. Ibrahim Zadran
  3. Gulbadin Naib
  4. Najibullah Zadran
  5. Azmatullah Omerzai
  6. Mohammad Nabi
  7. Karim Janat
  8. Rashid Khan (c)
  9. Noor Ahmad
  10. Naveen Ul Haq
  11. Fazalhaq Farooqi

Afghanistan should take pride in their performance so far in the T20 World Cup 2024. Having defeated New Zealand, they passed the litmus test to qualify for the Super 8 stage. Now that they have made it this far, it looks unlikely they will make any changes in their playing 11. The team has a strong 4-pace and 3-spin attack, which is well-suited to any kind of pitch.

South Africa Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Quinton de Kock (wk)
  2. Reeza Hendricks
  3. Aiden Markram (c)
  4. Heinrich Klaasen 
  5. David Miller
  6. Tristan Stubbs
  7. Marco Jansen
  8. Kagiso Rabada
  9. Keshav Maharaj
  10. Anrich Nortje
  11. Tabraiz Shamsi

The South African team has been stunning in the group stage by winning four out of four matches. The pace battery for South Africa has been breathing fire, but just like India, South Africa will play an extra spinner, Tabraiz Shamsi in place of one of the pacers. But who will he replace? Well, looking at the current performance, it should be Kagiso Rabada, but don’t be surprised if it is Baartman. 

West Indies Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Johnson Charles
  2. Brandon King
  3. Nicholas Pooran (wk)
  4. Shai Hope
  5. Rovman Powell (c)
  6. Andre Russell
  7. Sherfane Rutherford
  8. Akeal Hosein
  9. Alzarri Joseph
  10. Obed McCoy
  11. Gudakesh Moti

If we talk about the best playing 11 for West Indies, it should mostly remain unchanged. West Indies did make a couple of changes in their playing 11 that played against Afghanistan. Roston Chase and Romario Shephard were dropped from the side, and Shai Hope and Obed McCoy got a game. With both these players giving a good performance, expect West Indies to stick to the same playing 11.

England Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Jos Buttler (c&wk)
  2. Phil Salt
  3. Will Jacks
  4. Jonny Bairstow
  5. Harry Brook
  6. Liam Livingstone
  7. Moeen Ali
  8. Jofra Archer
  9. Mark Wood
  10. Reece Topley
  11. Adil Rashid

Coming to England’s best playing 11 for the Super 8 stage, the top 7 should remain the same as we had seen in the Group Stage matches. With 3 spinners already present in the England team in the form of Adil, Moeen, and Livingstone, it doesn’t look like England will make any changes in their bowling lineup too. So, 3 spinners + Archer, Wood, and Topley should be their best bowling combination.

Australia Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. David Warner
  2. Travis Head
  3. Mitchell Marsh (c)
  4. Glenn Maxwell
  5. Marcus Stoinis
  6. Tim David
  7. Matthew Wade (wk)
  8. Pat Cummins
  9. Mitchell Starc
  10. Adam Zampa
  11. Josh Hazlewood

Talking about Australia’s best playing 11 for the Super 8 stage, it seems the Kangaroos might not make any changes to their playing 11. While the team may be interested in bringing in Ashton Agar as a spin all-rounder, there is literally no space in their playing 11. To accommodate Agar, Australia will have to remove one of the pacers. This looks like an unlikely move, so 3 pacers and 2 spinners is the combination that Australia might stick to.

Team India Best Super 8 Playing 11 for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Rohit Sharma (c)
  2. Virat Kohli
  3. Rishabh Pant (wk)
  4. Suryakumar Yadav
  5. Shivam Dube
  6. Hardik Pandya
  7. Ravindra Jadeja
  8. Axar Patel
  9. Kuldeep Yadav
  10. Arshdeep Singh
  11. Jasprit Bumrah

Coming to Team India’s best playing 11 for Super 8, we should see one major change. With West Indies pitches assisting spin, Kuldeep Yadav should come on for Mohammed Siraj to strengthen the spin department. While India already have two spin all-rounders in the side, the lack of a proper wicket-taking spin option was missing. With Siraj’s performance also being below average, Kuldeep seems the best bet at the moment.
