No Yashasvi Jaiswal in the Final:

Another edition of the T20 World Cup is witnessing the last game. After a long journey, the new winner of the T20 world will be decided. In the whole tournament, South Africa and India set examples of brilliance as they qualified for the final being unbeaten. This is an incredible record. The winning team will be unbeaten and the losing team will register their first and the most heartbreaking defeat. 

Before India faces South Africa, young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is missing out on the game too. Yashasvi Jaiswal’s absence from the T20 World Cup 2024 lineup stems from the Indian cricket team’s decision to prioritize Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli as their preferred opening batsmen for the tournament. This strategic choice reflects the team’s confidence in Sharma and Kohli’s abilities to provide strong starts in crucial matches.

As an opener, Virat Kohli is having a tough time with the bat. Even after showing a masterclass in the IPL 2024, he is struggling to score runs. But the final match can bring out the best out of him. The rest of the team is eyeing the desired trophy ahead of the big game. 

End of 11-Year Trophy Drought or Winning the First Trophy?

Playing in a World Cup final always comes with immense pressure, amplified further by the weight of expectations on both teams.

On the other hand, South Africa has been waiting even longer for their elusive trophy, three times as long as India. South Africa carries the hopes and aspirations of the entire cricketing community in the country. They too are focused on seizing this opportunity and bringing home the coveted title.
