The former Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Robin Uthappa identified the favorites to win the ICC World Cup in India in 2023.
Since the T20 World Cup will take place in 2024, Robin Uthappa stated that there will be a lot more T20I matches in the following days.
He added, however, that the selection will be decided and the squad prepared if selection India, captained by Rohit Sharma, could play a few matches before to the ODI World Cup.
The Men in Blue are the favorites to win the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023, according to the 37-year-old, since hosts will benefit from playing in front of home fans.
“A loss in the series (against Ireland) will be tremendously detrimental to the team. Before the T20 World Cup next year, India will play a lot of T20 cricket in this T20I series. There will be extensive planning. India will have a team finalized, they will have a guaranteed 15 players finalized, and they will find themselves in a solid situation if they can reach the point when they have a few games remaining before the World Cup (ODI WC). India is unquestionably the favorite at home, according to Uthappa.
Both Chahal and Kuldeep are my choices: Robin Uthappa on which spinner he will select for the ICC World Cup in 2023 When Uthappa was questioned about who he will select between Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, the former player responded by saying that he will choose both spinners because, if given the chance, they will both play a significant role in the ODI World Cup.
Uthappa continued by saying that Kuldeep will be a part of his team because he has improved his bowling technique and has consistently delivered when given the chance.
“For the World Cup, I would choose Chahal and Kuldeep. Kuldeep is a much-improved bowler, and I would love to have him as a team option because he has consistently delivered when given the chance. He gave his all during his performances. Kuldeep, in my opinion, ought to be an additional choice. Both Kuldeep and Chahal pose a threat. If given the chance, Kuldeep and Chahal will be dangerous in the World Cup, said Robin Uthappa.
Since Rohit Sharma will be the skipper and cannot afford to make any mistakes that could cost them the ICC World Cup 2023, he will play a major part in the forthcoming World Cup in India. The hosts will be hoping to win the coveted tournament to end their lengthy ICC trophy drought.
On October 8 at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, India will face Australia in the opening match of the ICC World Cup 2023. India vs. Pakistan, the most anticipated match of the tournament, will take place at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium on October 14.
