20 Players Shortlisted by BCCI for the Upcoming ICC Men’s World Cup

The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) has shortlisted 20 probable players who will represent India at the upcoming ICC men’s world cup scheduled to be held in November 2023 in India. The decision regarding the shortlisted players for the ICC men’s 50-over world cup in India was taken at a review meeting. The BCCI has decided to rest and rotate these players leading up to the World Cup 2023 so each one of them will have ample game time under their belts. 

Apart from the BCCI officials, the meeting was attended by Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, the head coach Rahul Dravid, chief selector Chetan Sharma, the numero uno of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) VVS Laxman and the President of BCCI Roger Binny. Together these people brainstormed for around 4 hours to arrive at a conclusive decision. 

Apart from shortlisting 20 players for the next ICC event, important decisions such as prioritizing international cricket, the World Test Championship, players’ availability, fitness and workload management were also discussed at length during this meeting. The NCA has been asked to supervise the performance and fitness of these 20 players during the IPL as well. 

An important meeting such as this one on the very first day of 2023 indicates the seriousness of the BCCI towards the team and its engagements for this year. The apparent reason behind this meeting is to ensure the team does not repeat the Asia Cup and World T20 meet performances. India failed to qualify for the finals of both the aforementioned events.
