Jasprit Bumrah Stages a Remarkable Comeback: Dominates India vs. Ireland Series

Jasprit Bumrah’s return has been nothing short of spectacular! The former Australian all-rounder named his preferred 15-member squad for Team India for the forthcoming ODI World Cup 2023. Set to take place in India from October 5 to November 19, the ODI World Cup has garnered immense anticipation.

Interestingly, T20I batting sensation Suryakumar Yadav did not find a place in Moody’s lineup. Instead, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who had been overlooked for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023 squad, secured a spot in the World Cup selection.

In a video featured on Star Sports, Tom Moody shared his envisioned Team India squad for the World Cup 2023, acknowledging the complexity of finalizing a 15-member team from all participating nations.

Moody’s selected lineup aligns closely with expectations, with Rohit Sharma leading the star-studded team. The batting order features prominent names like Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, and Ishan Kishan. While Suryakumar Yadav is conspicuously absent, wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan, with an average of 46.26 from 17 ODIs, including one century and six fifties, made the cut.
