India is hosting the entire World Cup alone for the first time. World Cup 2023 will start on 5th October and the final will be played on 19th November. There was panic in the cricket world before this tournament. A star player can resign from his captaincy post before the World Cup 2023. According to reports, the Cricket Board has also decided to hold a meeting soon to decide on this issue.
This player can leave the captaincy before the World Cup:
After the defeat in the Asia Cup 2023 final, Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka is likely to step down as the team captain ahead of the ODI World Cup 2023 in India. According to reports, Sri Lanka Cricket may take a final decision on this soon. Shanaka is one of the best all-rounders in the team and has made the Lankan team a strong unit. But after the recent defeat against India in the final, this big decision can be taken.
This player can get big responsibility:
According to media reports, Kusal Mendis can be made the new captain of the Sri Lankan team in place of Dasun Shanaka. Kusal Mendis has played 112 ODI matches for Sri Lanka. He has also performed very well recently. He has also played 60 Test and 55 T20 matches for Sri Lanka.
Dasun Shanaka had apologized to the fans:
Dasun Shanaka also apologized to the fans after the crushing defeat in the final of the Asia Cup. He had said, ‘We reached the final without five key players. The situation we were in two years ago is a good sign. We thank our fans and apologize that we disappointed them. Congratulations to the Indian team for its excellent performance.
Team India won in a one-sided manner:
Team India, after losing the toss and bowling first, won the match by 10 wickets in 6.1 overs after bowling out Sri Lanka for just 50 runs in 15.2 overs. The hero of India’s victory was Mohammed Siraj, who broke the back of Sri Lankan batting by taking 5 wickets in just 16 balls and 6 wickets for 21 runs in 7 overs.
