The selection committee headed by Ajit Agarkar has announced Team India for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. On Tuesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India i.e. BCCI released the post on social media and revealed the team.
A total of 15 bigwigs have got a chance for the World Cup 2023. In such a situation, it is going to be very difficult for captain Rohit Sharma to select the playing XI. Therefore, through this article, we are going to tell you about those 11 players who can be seen playing in the World Cup 2023.
These players can open in World Cup 2023:
Team India has to play its first match of the ODI World Cup 2023 against Australia. Both the teams are going to face each other on 8 October. The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is going to witness this clash. In such a situation, if we talk about the playing XI of the Indian team before this match, then Shubman Gill can get a place as an opener.
However, since IPL 2023, nothing special has been seen with the youngster’s bat. His performance in Asia Cup 2023 was also decent. But his performance on Indian pitches has been commendable. At the same time, his partner will be captain Rohit Sharma himself. The pair of these two has won many matches for Team India. So, fans will have high hopes for these two players in the mega tournament.
These players can get placed in the middle order:
Talking about the middle order, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, and KL Rahul can be seen in it. Virat Kohli can come to bat at number 3. The former Indian skipper has been looking in great touch of late. These days he is a part of the Asia Cup 2023, but he has not been able to do anything special in it so far.
But it is expected that he will show an impressive performance in the World Cup 2023. Shreyas Iyer can come down to bat at number 4. After a break of about six months, Shreyas Iyer has returned to cricket through the Asia Cup. KL Rahul can come to bat at number 5. In such a situation, despite being in good form, Ishaan Kishan can be shown the way out of the team. Apart from this, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja can play the role of finisher.
These players will be seen bowling in World Cup 2023:
Lastly, if we talk about the bowling department of Team India, then Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj can be the bowlers of the team in the ODI World Cup 2023. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj can be included in the team as fast bowlers, while Kuldeep Yadav can play the role of spinner. Apart from these, Ravindra Jadeja will also be seen bowling spin. Hardik Pandya will be the fast-bowling option.
India’s possible playing XI for World Cup 2023:
Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj.
