India CWC squad 2023
India has announced their official world cup squad. But we have some predictions for you. You will enjoy it a lot since some players have shown outstanding performances in recent years. Maybe it is the far-sightedness of Indian team management that is paying off. There are so many talented players!
|Kuldeep Yadav||Left arm Wrist spin|
Now, let’s talk about them in detail.
The top-order batsmen have generally been India’s foundation in ODIs. However, there has been discussion about whether India needs to play more aggressively upfront. Indians have focused on it for 3 years, which has resulted in India becoming the second-fastest team in the powerplay.
With King Kohli and Rohit in the top order, I do not think we need to discuss it anymore.
Regarding the middle order, India would not want a replay of the last World Cup, when they were vulnerable midway into the semi-finals due to an inexperienced central demand. However, the current middle-order seems to be doing well.
Like always, the batsmen will be a force to be reckoned with in the World Cup for India.
With All-rounders like Pandya and Jadeja, we do not think India needs anything else, so this department is already occupied. If young all-rounders like Yadav need to get a team spot, they must prove themselves.
In the spin bowling department, Axar and Kuldeep have already made a solid spot for themselves. So if they play in the world cup in 2023, there is no surprise. Axar has vast experience playing IPL. His tight left-arm spin bowling can also control the runs and get some wickets.
While Kuldeep’s unorthodox left-arm bowling is rare, making him a great wicket-taking option because he can deceive the batsmen with his sharp variations.
Fast bowling is something India has never had a grip on, but with bowlers like Bhuvi and Bumrah, they can get wickets with the new ball. Both of them have shown the ability to bowl yorkers consistently, making them a great choice for death overs. Let’s see how this plays out for India.
An analysis – Strengths, weaknesses and areas to improve
Just a quick look towards the squad and you can say that batting is the core of the Indian cricket team. Whether you like it or not, India will rely on their batsmen for this world cup. While spinners can take control of the situation, it is highly unlikely that other players will be uncomfortable playing in the subcontinent conditions now.
IPL is a big thing; with IPL, foreign players have familiarized themselves with the bowling conditions. So, what India should do with these players is control as much as possible when they are bowling, with some strong fielding. And then cover that up with their bombastic batting.
If they do that, they may as well take it back, just like in 2011
Final words – Our prediction for India’s performance
India looks pretty good in this world cup. They are already at the No. 1 spot in the ODI rankings. Plus, they have a massive home advantage. Stadiums will be full of fans chanting for their team and favourite players. Indian batting lineup is suitable for these sorts of conditions. In my opinion, they are one of the top contenders for the cricket world cup 2023.
