The 20 Potential Indian players for ODI World Cup 2023 Squad

The winners of the 2011 world cup are one of the favourites for the 2023 World cup squad. They never let any team win any bilateral series in their territory and it’s a golden chance for them to transform that bilateral form into world cup winning mode. 

The ODI world cup is the thing that has kept ODI cricket happening in this era of lucrative t20 Cricket and extended format fans wait anxiously for those days. This world cup is probably going to be the final for some of the Indian greats. So they will be thinking of putting curtains on their Career with a world cup win. We will be guessing about those 20 players who will make it into the world cup.

Top order for India in the 2023 World cup squad 

India experiments with its bench strength from time to time, they can even concoct one or more teams apart from their main playing XI. It gives them heaps of advantages but one detrimental cause it leads to is the ultimate confusion for their Selectors when any mega event is approaching. 

With Kl Rahul promoted down the order in their away Series against Bangladesh and with Shikhar Dhawan totally out of form, India will be looking to outspread the innings with Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill. Ishan Kishan will also be in the squad with his flexibility to bat even in the middle order. 

Virat Kohli is going to be the first and last pick, certainly for sure for India for the ODI world cup 2023.

Middle order for India in the 2023 World cup squad 

The middle order is the place that will confuse the Indian selectors to the utmost to decide the playing XI for any match. Options they have in the middle order are Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Surya Kumar Yadav, KL Rahul, Sanju Samson, and Rishabh Pant ( one from the latter three to play as Wicketkeeper). 

Allrounders for India in the 2023 World cup squad

Hardik Pandya delivers a  big advantage to the Indian Cricket team courtesy of his adaptability in the squad. The right-arm quick bowler can be potentially played as a middle-order batsman and can also bowl the full quota of his bowling when had got to. His fielding connotation is also second to none. 

Axar Patel who played a match-winning innings against the West Indies earlier this year and Ravindra Jadeja who has been the backbone of Indian cricketers for over a decade now in nearly all of the formats will be in the squad as usual. Shardul Thakur and  Washington Sundar who can score quickly down the order will also be looking to come into the team India under the Umbrella of All-rounders.

Bowlers For India in the 2023 World cup squad 

Yuzvendra Chahal the leg spinner and Kuldeep Yadav the chinaman will be the top two choices for India with two orthodox Spinners discussed earlier in the department of All-rounders. 

Jasprit Bumrah will be in action for team India in the world cup leading the pace attack with Mohammad Shami, Deepak Chahar, and Muhammad Siraj.  It is looking unsure about the inclusion of Arshdeep Singh. As per the Analysis of Indian Cricket Journalists, Umran Malik will be there in the squad in first place for Team India even if he doesn’t get a game in the world cup. Being in the world cup squad will give him an enormous amount of Confidence and will uplift his skills gigantically.
