The announcement of Team India’s World Cup Squad will take place at a press conference today (Tuesday) at the Congress Hall in Earl’s Regency, Kandy.

It’s important to note that this press conference is exclusively for Indian media members who hold accreditation for the Asia Cup 2023.

Ishan Kishan’s left-handed wicket-keeping abilities and his excellent current form have proven to be advantageous for him. Consequently, he has become the preferred choice, especially when compared to the returning KL Rahul, who is a right-handed player.

It appears that Sanju Samson, who is the traveling reserve, and Prasidh Krishna, are not likely to make it into India’s final 15-member roster for the ODI World Cup 2023. The official announcement of the 15-member squad is scheduled for Tuesday, which is the deadline for submission.

The quest to replicate the achievements of the 2011 Indian cricket team, led by MS Dhoni, when they clinched the ODI World Cup on home soil, will be entrusted to the remaining 15 members of the Asia Cup squad in the 2023 tournament.

India World Cup 2023 squad:

In the India World Cup 2023 Squad, it appears that the chances of both Washington Sundar and the experienced off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin making a last-minute entry into the squad are highly unlikely.

The team’s management seems to prioritize strengthening the batting lineup by considering a reliable option at the No. 8 position instead.

It is anticipated that the all-rounders, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur, will retain their spots in the World Cup 2023 squad, along with Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya.

Chief selector Ajit Agarkar has been actively communicating with his fellow selection committee members to assess the fitness of the recently recovered trio: Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer, and KL Rahul.

This coordination is essential in making informed decisions about their inclusion in the squad. Even though Jasprit Bumrah has traveled to India for paternity leave, there have been no indications of discomfort or injury from either him or Shreyas Iyer.

The medical staff at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru has provided K.L. Rahul with a clean bill of health after his recovery from a groin strain he suffered prior to the Asia Cup.

As a result, it appears that the selection committee and team management are unlikely to make any alterations to the core group of players selected for the India World Cup 2023 Squad, which had initially been chosen for the Asia Cup 2023.
