Sanjay Manjrekar Announces India’s Squad For ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023, Star Player Name Left Out

As the excitement builds for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 in India, veteran cricketers and commentators have started sharing their predictions and preferred squads for the participating teams. Joining the list, former Indian batter and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has put forward his 15-member probable squad for the marquee tournament. While India’s official squad is yet to be announced by the BCCI, Manjrekar’s selections include a mix of experienced players and young talents, aiming to balance the team’s composition.

In Manjrekar’s predicted squad, India’s current ODI skipper, Rohit Sharma, retains his captaincy. Rohit’s formidable opening partnership with young sensation Shubman Gill is expected to provide a strong foundation for the team. The surprise inclusion of Shikhar Dhawan, a seasoned campaigner, adds experience to the top order, while Virat Kohli takes his place among the middle-order batters. KL Rahul makes a comeback into the Indian side, showcasing his consistent performances in limited-overs cricket. The inclusion of Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson also brings depth to the batting lineup.

The team’s all-round capabilities are strengthened by the presence of Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja as specialist all-rounders. Both players can contribute significantly with both bat and ball, providing valuable depth to the team’s resources.

Manjrekar’s bowling selections showcase a formidable spin duo in Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, known for their ability to take wickets in the middle overs. The seam attack features the expertise of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Prasidh Krishna. This combination offers a blend of pace, swing, and accuracy, presenting a well-rounded bowling attack capable of troubling any opposition.
