The T20 World Cup 2024 is set to offer unique opportunities to certain stars, as the United States of America cricket team participates in the showpiece event for the first time ever. In the USA squad, there remain a number of established stars with roots in India, Pakistan and other parts of the world. One such player is Nisarg Patel who was did his schooling in India before migrating to the United States in 2003. He is now keen to pick the brains of India’s Ravindra Jadeja and spend some time with Virat Kohli.

“MS Dhoni is my favourite but he is retired now, so I want to take some tips from Ravindra Jadeja since he is my type of player, left arm spinner and can bat also. So even a small tip from him can be very helpful for me,” Nisarg told ANI.

“We are very excited.
