The Indian cricket team embarks on a new journey in the One-Day International (ODI) format with the goal of assembling a strong squad for the 2023 ODI World Cup.
As the Indian team prepares for the Bangladesh challenge, senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul return. A lot has been said about the team composition that India will select for the first 50-over match in Mirpur prior to the first ODI.
The batting unit now includes players like Rajat Patidar and Rahul Tripathi, but will any of them play?
For the first one-day international against Bangladesh, we believe the following team should be India:
Shikhar Dhawan: Shikhar Dhawan is a certain starter for Team India in the format, as his appearances in the Indian team are now limited to the 50-over format.
Rohit Sharma: After losing the T20 World Cup, the skipper returns. He would like to put the disappointment behind him and start over in the ODI format.
Virat Kohli: Even Kohli’s place in the team is not up for debate. The talisman batter would be eager to carry his momentum into the 50-over format after regaining his form at the Asia Cup this year.
Shreyas Iyer: However an all-format player, Shreyas Iyer has seen a more reliable disagreement with the ODI format than some others of late. He is expected to grow into a significant team member in the future.
KL Rahul: Rahul is naturally an opening batsman, but the middle order is where the Indian team plans to use him in ODIs.He will probably continue to play this role in ODIs for India.
Rishabh Pant: At least for the first two One-Day Internationals, the man whose place in the Indian team has been the subject of numerous debates is likely to be trusted.
Axar Patel: He is a rare asset due to his ability to deliver with the bat and the ball. Axar contributes significantly to the team when the environment is favorable to spin.
Washington Sundar: Sundar, like Axar, is a valuable member of the team in the 50-over format due to his versatility and recent heroics.
Deepak Chahar: Chahar is the best player at the moment to provide India with a striker upfront. For India, anticipate him to be the ball carrier of choice.
Mohammed Siraj: With Mohammed Shami out, Siraj turns into a much more significant player for the group. His recent play also demonstrates his skill with the ball.
Kuldeep Sen: Kuldeep Sen, who has excelled in domestic cricket, is likely to take advantage of Shami’s injury and earn a spot in India’s lineup for the first ODI.
