Batting and bowling is not the only cause of concern for Team India before the World Cup. The list of problems is quite long. From fielding to fitness, there are problems everywhere.

ODI World Cup 2023: India Squad for the World Cup 2023 will be announced on 5 September 2023 (Tuesday). Team India’s squad present in Sri Lanka for the Asia Cup will be announced in the press conference. Captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid will be a part of it. The kind of performance of Team India against Pakistan and Nepal in the Asia Cup has made it clear that Team India is not ready even a month before the start of the great battle. In such a situation, during the announcement of the team, there should be tough questions for coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma. Everyone would like answers to these 5 questions from both during the press conference.

KL Rahul’s fitness

KL Rahul’s selection for the ODI World Cup 2023 is almost certain. Clarity should be given to the fitness of KL Rahul during the announcement of Team India for the World Cup. If you are fit, are you completely fit? Can you keep wickets for 50 overs? Like the Asia Cup, there should not be an excuse that two matches will not be played.

How many marks are given for batting against Pakistan and bowling against Nepal?

Rahul Dravid should be questioned about his batting against Pakistan and bowling against Nepal. The question to him should be whether he is satisfied with this kind of preparation. What are his plans for improvement in both the departments? Team India’s batting was a flop against Pakistan. Very ordinary bowling was seen against Nepal.

Poor fielding

Fielding is also a cause of concern for Team India. Its secrets against Nepal were exposed. After this, the figure came out that we are only ahead of Afghanistan in taking catches. Players like Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer dropped catches. The situation was similar against Australia in the World Test Championship final 2023 as well.

Will you look at old records or forms?

If KL Rahul is selected then coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma should be questioned whether Ishan Kishan will get playing 11 chances or not. Will importance be given to form or old records? Ishan is in excellent form and has scored 4 half-centuries in 4 consecutive ODIs. Rahul, on the other hand, has a good record in the middle order but has been away from the field for a long time.

Will you be able to handle the pressure of having the ODI World Cup 2023 in India?

Being the host, Team India will be under pressure to win the ODI World Cup 2023. The biggest reason for this is that the last three champions have been hosts. It started with India becoming world champion in 2011. After this, in 2015, host Australia and in 2019, host England became champions. Apart from this, India has hosted the World Cup in 1987, 1996 and 2011. Reached the semi-finals in 1987 and 1996. 2011 has won. Talking about the World Cup in the 21st century, played the finals in 2003, the group stage in 2007, the finals in 2011, and the semi-finals in 2015, and 2019. In such a situation, the question will be asked to Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma Will Team India withstand this pressure and perform well?
