All you need to know about Team India
The 15-member squad will be led by Rohit Sharma with Hardik Pandya acting as his deputy.
India 15-player squad: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj.
All the teams have until September 28 to make any changes to the squad, after which any alterations will be subject to approval from the ICC.
All 15-players will have an eye on this magnificent trophy
Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishan Kishan are all included in the batting group, which is led by captain Rohit Sharma. Ishan Kishan offers a second keeping option. In order to provide more batting alternatives, all-rounders Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, and Shardul Thakur have also been picked.
Jasprit Bumrah leads the bowling unit after returning without any signs of an injury, with Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj most likely making up the first-choice pace unit. The team's top spin option is Kuldeep Yadav.
Sanju Samson was left off the roster because Rahul was there, along with Tilak Varma and Prasidh Krishna.
Samson had a good chance to stake a claim to a spot on the Indian team earlier this year. He had the option of filling in as the middle of the order's backup batter. It also helps to be a keeper. The Kerala player, though, faltered at the wrong time. Samson has averaged 22.16 across formats in seven opportunities since the West Indies trip.
His ODI average before the tour was an excellent 66, but after the two matches against the West Indies, those stats have fallen. Samson is left out of the 15-person roster because the selectors prefer Suryakumar in the middle order and because Rahul has returned, adding another glove option.
Pandya, Shardul, Jadeja, and Axar are India's four all-around players. It is obvious that the Men in Blue place a high value on their ability to bat down the order. This was seen in their recent Asia Cup match against Pakistan, where they had eight different batting options.
India won the ODI World Cup back in 2011 under the leadership of MS Dhoni, when the final was played in Mumbai.
"Keep your chin up, be ready for next opportunity," was Rohit's advice to players who missed out
India begins their World Cup campaign on October 8 2023, when they take on Australia.
