World Cup 2023: Team India Preview, Squad, Match List, Playing XI, and Prediction

The ODI World Cup 2023, set to take place at home after a decade since 2011, is scheduled to commence on October 5 at the magnificent Narendra Modi Stadium. The tournament will kick off with a match between England and New Zealand, promising an exciting start to this cricketing spectacle.

Rohit Sharma will be the captain for the Indian Team in the ODI World Cup for the first time. His leadership has been commendable throughout the year, and he’ll be key in steering the team’s fortunes in this tournament.

One significant advantage for India is the home turf. Conditions in India are well-known to the players, and this familiarity can work in their favor. The Indian bowlers, who showcased their prowess in the recent Asia Cup held in Sri Lanka, are in fine form. With conditions that favor both Indian batters and bowlers, the winning prospects for Team India look promising.

Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul, and Shreyas Iyer have all displayed exceptional form, and their contributions have been invaluable to the Indian Team. Their performances in the Asia Cup have further boosted the team’s confidence and prospects as they gear up for the ODI World Cup.
