The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is set to announce India’s squad for the ODI World Cup 2023 on September 3, a day after the much-anticipated Asia Cup 2023 clash between India and Pakistan. The final squad for the 50-over cricket’s premier event will be revealed just two days before the deadline to announce provisional squads. This allows India the flexibility to make changes to the squad until September 28, one week before the World Cup’s commencement in Ahmedabad.

Considering the uncertain fitness status of key players, especially KL Rahul, the provisional World Cup squad is expected to include standby players. India’s 17-member extended squad for the Asia Cup 2023 already accounts for such considerations, with Sanju Samson named as a traveling reserve to cover for KL Rahul’s potential absence due to injury.

India’s selection strategy has been highlighted by the inclusion of players like Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul in the Asia Cup squad despite their recent injury layoffs. While Iyer has been declared fit, Rahul picked up a fresh niggle unrelated to his previous thigh injury, making his availability uncertain for India’s opening Asia Cup match against Pakistan.

As India plays two matches in the Asia Cup group stage before the provisional World Cup squad announcement, players have the opportunity to showcase their form and fitness ahead of the premier event. With the deadline for squad finalization looming, the selection panel faces the challenge of choosing the best combination of players based on their recent performances and fitness levels.

The training camp for India’s players has been underway in Alur, near Bengaluru, where they have been honing their fitness and skills. The presence of standby players in the provisional squad indicates the selectors’ strategic approach to ensure a well-prepared and adaptable team for the World Cup.

The finalization of the World Cup squad will mark a crucial step in India’s preparation for the tournament, adding to the excitement and anticipation surrounding the upcoming cricketing events on home soil. As the cricketing world eagerly awaits the announcement, fans will be curious to see the mix of experience and fresh talent that will represent India in the prestigious ODI World Cup 2023.
