As the Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia starting later in the month becomes the major talking point for all cricket fans, the Shikhar Dhawan-led ODI side will be focusing on pushing their cases further for a place in the ODI World Cup to be held in India next year. 


Interim head coach VVS Laxman feels that with India having incredible riches in the ODI squad, especially with youngsters like Shubman Gill shining with the bat, the selectors will have a tough time in selecting the squad once the main players come into the frame.



“The talent in the batting department, we are spoilt for choices. It’ll be difficult for the selectors to get the right team going into the 2023 50-over World Cup. All the youngsters are doing well, they know that they’ll not get too many opportunities once the main players return,” said Laxman in a chat with the broadcasters ahead of the first India-South Africa ODI at Lucknow.

With none of the players from the T20 World Cup squad available for the ODI series, Laxman refused to see the side as ‘second-string.’ In the absence of main players this year, India inflicted 3-0 series sweeps over West Indies and Zimbabwe.
