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!

Rohit Sharma Batsman
Shubman Gill Batsman
Virat Kohli Batsman
Shreyas Iyer Batsman
KL Rahul Batsman
Ishan Kishan Batsman
Suryakumar Yadav Batsman
Hardik Pandya Allrounder
Ravindra Jadeja Allrounder
Ravi Ashwin Offspinner
Shardul Thakur Pacer
Jasprit Bumrah Pacer
Kuldeep Yadav Left arm Wrist spin
Mohammed Shami Pacer
Mohammed Siraj Pacer

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.

Shubman Gill has emerged as the next hot thing in the Indian batting lineup. India has always been the heaven for batters. IPL has produced a lot of bombastic batters that can hit the ball out of the park on every delivery. The prince of IPL is in form, and the confidence he carries from the Asia Cup will help team India a lot.

Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan have proved themselves in the Asia Cup as well. They have performed in the recent series against Australia. The runs they scored have showed the world how strong Indian side is when it comes to bench strength.


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.

The absence of Axar is going to hurt them a bit. However, it isn’t something India should be too concerned about.


Ashwin and Kuldeep have already made a solid spot for themselves in the spin bowling department. So if they play in the World Cup in 2023, there is no surprise. Ashwin needs no introductions. His prowess in the limited-overs cricket speaks for itself. He right at the top among great names like Sunil Narine and Saeed Ajmal

While Kuldeep’s unorthodox left-arm bowling is rare, making him a tremendous wicket-taking option because he can deceive the batsmen with his sharp variations.

His addition in the Asia Cup squad out of the blue definitely gave people a shock. However, he proved himself when he emerged as the top wicket-taker in the tournament. Will he be able to do that in this world cup as well?

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.

Muhammad Siraj is in form. His bowling abilities were in front of everyone when he took those wickets in the Asia Cup final. If he manages to repeat what he did on those Sri Lankan pitches, this is bad news for other batters. Some people even suspect he is going to be a Zaheer Khan 2.0 (Because Zaheer picked up the most wickets in 2011 world cup, which was hosted by 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.
