After India's triumphant T20 World Cup campaign in the Caribbean, Shah showed confidence in the team's bench strength. 

He also expressed his desire to see the Men in Blue winning the upcoming tournaments, including the Champions Trophy and the World Test Championship.

"I would want India to win all the titles. We have the biggest bench strength, only three players from this team are going to Zimbabwe. We can field three teams if the need arises," Shah stated. 

"The way this team is progressing, our target is to win World Test Championship final and Champions Trophy. There will be a similar squad playing there. The seniors will be there," he added. 

After Jay Shah's statement, it's confirmed that Indian batting stalwarts Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will feature in the Champions Trophy 2025. 

Both players retired from T20Is following India's thrilling seven-run win over South Africa in the T20 World Cup final. However, they will continue to represent the country in the rest two formats.
