The 15-member Indian squad for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 has been announced by the BCCI and it seems that the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is quite aware of the importance of having all-rounders in the team as there are four all-rounders in the squad. These four all-rounders are Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur and among these four, the one who is in a great form as of now is Hardik Pandya.
Hardik Pandya batted brilliantly in the match which was against Pakistan and along with Ishan Kishan, he brought the team out of trouble as there was a time when India was reeling at the score of 66/4.
While talking about Hardik Pandya in the press conference, Rohit Sharma stated, “His form will be crucial to us. He’s a guy who does both the things and that’s important. In the last year or so he has come up with the bat and his bowling has been good too. That’s important for us. You saw the quality in the last game against Pakistan. Ishan and Hardik put their hands up and scored well. Obviously, with bowling too he’s great. He has bowled well in the last year and a half for us. The way he batted in the last game showed that he has a very mature head on his shoulders. These are good signs for us.”
Well Rohit Sharma is happy with the team that has been selected but do you feel that this team can win the ICC ODI World Cup trophy?
