New Delhi. The ODI World Cup is to be played in India from 5 October to 19 November. A total of 10 teams will enter the tournament. This tournament is considered important for Team India, because the team has not been able to win the World Cup title since 2011. Meanwhile, the BCCI has announced the team for the Asian Games to be held in China from 28 September to 8 October. Rituraj Gaikwad has got the command of the team. At the same time, Yashasvi Jaiswal has also been successful in making a place in the T20 team. Both the players have scored a double century in List-A cricket. Apart from 15 players, 5 reserve players have also been selected in the team, but these 20 players will not be able to play the World Cup. Let us tell you why this can happen.
BCCI has already made it clear that those players will be given a chance in the Asian Games, who will not make it to the World Cup. The reason for this is that the workload of the players has to be managed. At the same time, the gold medal match of Asian Games is to be played on 8 October. Team India has to play its first match against Australia in the World Cup on this day i.e. 8th October in Chennai. That is, if the Indian team reaches the final of the Asian Games, then the players of the Kangaroo team will not be able to play in the World Cup match.
7 sixes in one over
Talking about Rituraj Gaikwad, he has done a great feat of hitting 7 sixes in an over in the Vijay Hazare ODI tournament. He is the first batsman in the world to do so. The bowler also bowled a no ball in the over. His performance from the IPL team Chennai Super Kings has also been amazing. On the other hand, Yashasvi Jaiswal performed well for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2023. He scored the best 171 runs by a West Indies player in his international debut. He has also done the feat of scoring the fastest half-century in 13 balls in IPL.
