The year 2023 holds immense significance for Indian cricket, with the highly anticipated ICC Cricket World Cup set to take place on home soil and the upcoming Asia Cup slated to begin at the end of this month.

As India’s ODI preparation raises certain concerns, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah engaged in discussions with India’s head coach, Rahul Dravid, during the T20I series against West Indies in Florida, USA. The meeting, lasting around two hours, hints at strategic deliberations to address key issues ahead of the marquee tournaments.

Amid the backdrop of crucial tournaments, Jay Shah’s meeting with Rahul Dravid in Florida garnered attention within the cricketing community. The BCCI Secretary, who is also the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) chairman, engaged in talks with Dravid outside the team hotel. While the exact details of the meeting remain undisclosed, the focus was likely on India’s preparation and strategy for the impending tournaments.

As the Indian cricket team gears up for the Asia Cup, Rahul Dravid and the support staff are set to regroup with the squad on June 24 in Alur for a preparatory camp. Notably, India has yet to finalize its Asia Cup squad, with fitness assessments being conducted on key players KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. The team management’s careful consideration of player fitness indicates a thorough approach to selecting a competitive lineup.

Reports suggest that India’s squad for the Asia Cup, a six-nation event, is likely to be unveiled after their first T20I encounter against Ireland on August 18. This timeline reflects the team’s commitment to ensuring that their chosen players are in optimal condition for the tournament.
