New Delhi. Team India has started preparing for the ODI World Cup. He made a great start against Sri Lanka (IND vs SL) with a 3-0 win. The team is now ready to play the (IND vs NZ) series from New Zealand. The 3-match ODI series between India and Kiwi team is starting from 18 January. The World Cup matches are to be held in India in October-November this year. Before that, the team now has to play less than 20 matches, but in the year 2022, 2 players who performed well were not given a place in the New Zealand series after Sri Lanka. In such a situation, it seems difficult for them to enter the World Cup.
First talk of senior batsman Shikhar Dhawan. Talking about 2022, he was second in terms of scoring the most runs for Team India in ODIs. He scored 688 runs in 22 innings at an average of 34. Had scored 6 half-centuries. 97 runs was the best score. But young opener Shubman Gill has almost filled his place by performing well. Gill has scored 845 runs in 15 innings since 2022 at an average of 70. Has scored 2 centuries and 5 half-centuries. 130 runs is his best performance. He also scored a century and a half-century in the Sri Lanka series.
Famous Krishna took 17 wickets
The famous fast bowler Krishna is also walking out of the team. In 2022, this fast bowler took 19 wickets in 11 ODIs at an average of 22. 4 wickets for 12 runs was the best performance. The economy was of 4.86. Meanwhile, Mohammad Siraj has attracted everyone’s attention by performing well. Even in the series against Sri Lanka, he bowled well and took 9 wickets. Since 2022, he has taken the maximum 33 wickets in 18 ODIs so far. 4 wickets for 32 runs is the best performance. The economy is of 4.53. Young fast bowler Umran Malik is also constantly knocking in the team.
Apart from this, Venkatesh Iyer, playing as an all-rounder, is also out of the race to make a place in the team. After the injury of Hardik Pandya, he got opportunities, but he could not show any special performance during this period.
