Indian Team ODI World Cup Final. KL Rahul In, Sanju Samson Out: Sources

India’s 2023 ODI World Cup squad is expected to be announced today. Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) selection committee chief Ajit Agarkar flew to Sri Lanka to discuss with team management and finalize the squad, sources told NDTV . There are no big surprises from the 2023 Asian Cup squad that BCCI had recently selected. With the ODI World Cup squad consisting of 15 members, there was no room for wicket-keeper striker Sanju Samson as in-form KL Rahul was chosen.

When Agarkar announced India’s Asian Cup squad, he suggested that the ODI World Cup roster would follow the same pattern. The Asian Cup squad, however, consisted of 17 members, with Samson included as Rahul’s backup. As the World Cup squad is only to contain 15 players, 2 members of the main team had to be removed.

It was learned that the two members who would be excluded from the list are Tilak Varma and Prasidh Krishna. While Varma received his first ODI call-up for the Asian Cup, Krishan was included in the roster after a long injury absence. Among the returning players, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul have earned a spot in India’s World Cup squad.

Among the biggest absentees, Yuzvendra Chahal, who also failed to make India’s Asian Cup squad, also failed to find a place in the World Cup squad. Suryakumar Yadav, despite struggling in the 50-over format, retains his place in the team.

India’s probable squad for the 2023 World Cup:Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya (vc), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul (week), Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishan Kishan (week), Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Shami , Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah.
