ODI World Cup 2023: Team India’s Probable 15-Man Squad, And Playing 11. With a home 50-over World Cup coming up in 2023, Indian cricket is expected to have a significant year. It is every Indian’s goal to see their nation raise the world cup every time they compete, but the Indian team hasn’t won a World Cup trophy since their victory in 2011 at home.

India has twice missed the World Cup final in the past 12 years, finishing in the semi-finals in 2015 and 2019. The Men in Blue won 14 games last season, with a win percentage of 58.33%. With nine victories, seven defeats, and two no results, they had trouble winning overseas. However, Men in Blue kept up their unstoppable streak at home, where they had five victories in their previous six games.

This year’s IPL is particularly significant since the BCCI may pick a few players for the World Cup 2023 squad who will perform well in the IPL 2023. Men in Blue will also play 15 One-Day Internationals and an Asia Cup before the ODI World Cup. However, one question remains, what will be India’s World Cup squad in 2023? Which players can we expect to see in our Playing 11?

6 Players who we will definitely see in World Cup 2023 Squad

Rohit Sharma

The Indian cricket team’s current captain, Rohit Sharma, will start the inning for his nation. Over the years, he has been an essential part of India’s winning formula. He had an outstanding World Cup 2019 run, scoring five centuries over nine games to become the first World Cup player to accomplish the feat.

Virat Kohli

Former India captain is currently the finest batsman in the world of cricket at the time. He gives the middle order much-needed steadiness. He can take the strain off himself and return it to the bowlers in his own unique manner, relieving tension off his team and batting partner. After regaining his form in Asia Cup 2022.The King is eager to win another World Cup for India.

Shubhman Gill

Shubhman Gill, Team India’s youthful blood, has confirmed his status in the team with back-to-back strong performances. He is a player who cannot be kept off the team. After Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul went out of form, Gill stepped in as India’s binding opener. The sort of talent this man possesses is just incredible. He recently posted a double century under his name and earned the honour of youngest player to strike a double century in ODIs.

Ravindra Jadeja

Ravindra Jadeja is this team’s ideal all-around player. No one has ever been able to field, bowl or hit as he can.  He is now India’s top fielder, and he has an incredible eye for run-outs. He now counts closing games as one of his skills and tries to achieve it late in innings. You can count on him to be efficient and take wickets at the same time as an off-spinner.

Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya is a fast all-rounder that India has been looking for for a long time. When he came down to bat at this place, he demonstrated his ability as a finisher. He is recognised for taking the ball to unreachable areas of the pitch. He finished practically every game in the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup 2022 after making his comeback in the world of cricket. BCCI will undoubtedly choose him as a finisher.

Mohd. Shami

Mohd. Shami has been India’s top bowler ever since he entered Indian cricket. The Indian squad always counts on him to take the wickets in the opening stages of the innings thanks to the swing he generates with the new ball, and since dew would play a major influence throughout the innings, India will focus on his death bowling when necessary. Shami also participated in the World Cup in 2015 and 2019, and he did quite well.
