India boasts an impressive roster, with a few standout performers, including:
- Rohit Sharma,
- Ravindra Jadeja,
- Mohammed Shami,
- Virat Kohli.
It’s no wonder that our team is a formidable contender in this World Championship.
Rohit Sharma is the current captain of the Indian national team, could have played in the 2011 World Cup, but his unsatisfactory batting performance led to his exclusion from the final squad. However, Rohit has participated in the last two World Championships, during which India reached the semi-finals.
Sharma boasts an impressive track record in World Championships, accumulating a total of 978 runs (in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups), establishing himself as a key player on the world stage.
He could have played in the 2011 World Cup, but a lack of international experience prevented him from making it to the final squad for the tournament. In the subsequent years, Ravindra established himself as an indispensable part of the team. He excelled in the 2019 World Championship when his impressive 77 runs in the semi-final against New Zealand almost propelled India into the final. He boasts an impressive performance record in World Championships, cementing his position as a crucial performer for the team.
He is a key player for the Indian national team, having performed well in the World Championships. Shami is the top wicket-taker for India in the last two World Cups. In two World Championships, he showcased his prowess in 11 matches, taking 31 wickets, and even achieving a memorable hat-trick in a match against Afghanistan in the previous season. It’s no wonder that he plays a crucial role in the Indian team’s performance.
A legend of the Indian team, the only player from the current squad who won the 2011 World Championship and captained the team in the 2019 World Cup. From 2011 to 2019, Kohli, participating in the World Cup, scored 1030 runs in 26 matches with an average of 46.81.
As captain, in 2019, India reached the semi-finals of the World Championship but suffered a defeat against New Zealand.
The composition of the Indian cricket team for the 2023 World Championship is impressive, and it’s worth noting that not all high-quality performers found a place in the final squad for the tournament.
