BCCI has already shortlisted 20 potential players to make up the Indian squad for the 2023 Men’s World Cup.

The Indian Cricket Control Board (BCCI) held the Indian Men’s Cricket Team Review Meeting in Mumbai on Sunday, with BCCI Chairman Roger Vinney, Secretary Jay Shah, Captain Rohit Sharma, Head Coach Rahul Dravid and National Cricket Head of his Coach was present. He is VVS Laxman of the Cricket Academy (NCA) and Chetan Sharma Chairman of the Senior Selection Committee.

One of the main points of discussion at the conference was the review of India’s performance at the T20 World Cup. There, Men in Blue lost in the semi-finals after being beaten by eventual champions England by his ten wickets. Other topics such as player availability, workload management and fitness parameters were also covered in detail.

The meeting also produced a shortlist of his 20 players who will compete in his ODI World Cup, which will be held in India later this year.

Here are the 5 key takeaways from the review meeting:

Yo-Yo Test returns:
As per a BCCI press release:
“The Yo-Yo Test and Dexa will now be part of selection criteria and implemented in the customized roadmaps of the central pool of players.”

20 players shorlisted for ODI World Cup

Well this is interesting as BCCI has already shortlisted 20 potential players, who can be seen forming the India squad for the 2023 Men’s World Cup. The BCCI will closely monitor these players, who will rotated accordingly in order to prepare them for the showpiece event, where India will look to end their ICC trophy drought.

The players might even have to sit out for a few IPL matches. BCCI stated:
“Keeping in mind the Men’s FTP and preparations for ICC CWC 2023, the NCA will work in tandem with the IPL Franchisee to monitor the targeted Indian players participating in the IPL 2023.”

Workload management and NCA:

India dearly missed the services of Jasprit Bumrah during the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup due to injury. Deepak Chahar also kept coming in and out of the team despite spending a significant amount of time at the NCA. With this in mind, special attention is paid to workload management and NCA plays a key role in monitoring player fitness.

Aspiring Players:
Another major update from BCCI was that “up-and-coming players must play a significant international season to be eligible for national team selection.”

No personnel changes

Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid have not delivered the expected results, but there have been no personnel changes. Citing a source close to the development, Sportsstar’s report states:
“The board reviewed our 2022 performance and also discussed our future direction. There was no specific discussion of personnel changes.”
