New Delhi, June 14: They were aspirants for inclusion in Team India's squad for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024. However, they were picked as travelling reserves only till the end of league stages.

As per ICC guideline, of the maximum four travelling reserves with a squad, only two will be able to stay with the team after the league matches.

 Taking that into account opener Shubman Gill and right-arm pacer Avesh Khan are likely to return to India after the last league game with Canada on Saturday. 

The duo travelled to Florida with the rest of the team as backups in case of any adversity. Gill and Avesh were part of the four-member travelling reserves along with Rinku Singh and Khaleel Ahmed.

It has been learnt that both Gill and Avesh's travels were only up to the US leg unless there were unexpected injuries to the players, according to Cricbuzz report.

Rohit Sharma-led side cruised to the Super Eight stage of the tournament after winning three consecutive matches in the group stage. In their last game of the US leg, India will take on Canada in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday.

India outclassed Ireland, Pakistan and the USA to stay at the top of Group A in the tournament so far. The inclement weather conditions in Florida might play spoilsport to India's winning momentum as the side gears for the Caribbean leg of the tournament.

As per the report, Rinku and Khaleel will stay with the squad and travel to Bridgetown, Barbados, where India play their first Super Eight game on June 20. The other two Super Eight games are in Antigua on June 22 and in St Lucia on June 24.

As per schedule, India will play Australia on June 24. (With IANS support)
