India's ODI World Cup 2023 Squad Can Be CHANGED By THIS Date If BCCI Selectors Want
The names of Sanju Samson, Tilak Varma, and Prasidh Krishna are not included in the 15-man Indian cricket team's list of players, which was unveiled earlier in September.
Samson was selected as a reserve player for the Asia Cup, whereas Tilak and Krishna were not. Once India advanced to the event final, Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak were granted a match in the Asia Cup 2023. However, none of them won the contest. Social media users are debating selection as a result of their failure.
Many people on X (previously Twitter) believe that Samson should have been chosen over Surya and that Surya is the incorrect decision. Others, however, drew attention to the error of selecting Tilak, an untested player who had not yet played an ODI before the Bangladesh match.
Some also disputed the choice of left-arm spinner Axar Patel when the lineup was unveiled. Numerous others contended that R Ashwin, an off-spinner, would have made a superior choice.
Axar was chosen by the selectors to guarantee that the Indians bat deep. Axar did not perform well against Sri Lanka, but he performed admirably against Bangladesh, nearly completing the victory with his bat.
On September 22, India will begin a three-ODI series against Australia. September 27 marks the end of the series. A side can make changes to the squad by September 28 in accordance with ICC World Cup regulations. That is the deadline for making any kind of change, which calls for ICC approval.
A team may make adjustments in response to form issues, fitness problems, or selectors' whims. However, after September, the team cannot be altered. In the event that a player or players are injured during the competition, substitutions may be made with ICC approval.
In the event of an injury, the ICC has permitted a maximum of three reserves to travel with the team.
One member of India's World Cup team is skipper Rohit Sharma. Hardik Pandya has been named the team's vice-captain. Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, and Virat Kohli form the middle order. Shubman Gill is the preferred opening choice. My backup for Iyer is Suryakumar Yadav. The preferred hitter and wicketkeeper will be KL Rahul.
Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, and Ravindra Jadeja are examples of all-rounders. The team's lone wrist spinner will be Kuldeep Yadav. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj make up Pace's bowling attack.
Even after recovering from the injury, Shreyas Iyer still has back problems. Prior to the Super 4 match against Pakistan, he suffered a back spasm injury. He played one game against Pakistan, where he received poor returns, and has only warmed the bench thereafter. A fascinating observation would be if Iyer is able to hold onto his spot on the team by September 28. In his opinion, the India vs. Australia series is significant.
