In a press conference on Monday, the 17-man lineup for the Indian cricket team’s 2023 Asia Cup campaign was revealed. At a press conference, captain Rohit Sharma and the BCCI top selector unveiled the team. The two also addressed concerns over India’s roster for the continental competition and the ensuing home World Cup in 2023. The lack of bowling options in the team beyond the specialist bowlers was one question Rohit had. Rohit had a distinctive response to the question.
The 2011 team was “that.” They possessed people who could bowl and bat. You must use what you now have. Whoever is performing well will be given a chance. Someone’s ability to bowl cannot be developed over night. These guys can bat and score runs. They are a part of the team for this reason. However, ideally, Sharma and Kohli will be able to bowl a few overs at the World Cup, said India skipper Rohit Sharma during a news conference that had everyone in a tizzy.
When asked why Tilak Varma, who has not yet played in an ODI, was included in the team, Agarkar responded, “In the West Indies, we saw some genuine promise in terms of not just performances but also temperament. And it provides us the chance to integrate him into the group and give him more experience; he is a left-hander once more and appears to be extremely potential.
“Fortunately, we can pick 17, but the World Cup will only have 15 players. We’ll make that decision when the time is right, but for the time being, it at least provides the captain and coach the chance to include him
