India’s head coach, Rahul Dravid, has revealed that the team has narrowed down to 17-18 players for the ODI World Cup, which will be held in India in October-November this year. Dravid stated that the team has a few players who are recovering from injuries and might come into the mix, depending on the time frame of their recoveries and how long it takes for them to come back. He also emphasized the importance of having flexibility in the squad to cover all bases for all conditions, with the tournament being played in nine different cities with varying conditions. Dravid also discussed how the team was looking to keep in shape for the global event in October-November 2023 with the ICC World Test Championship final, Asia Cup, and other matches ahead of it. He backed India’s top-order, who looked flimsy in the first two ODI against Australia, and said that the team should find a way through that spell and bat without losing too many wickets upfront.
