BCCI shortlists 20 players for ICC Men’s World Cup 2023

To guarantee thorough competition preparations, the team will cycle the 20 shortlisted players in its forthcoming missions.

The ICC Men’s World Cup 2023, which will be held in India, is rumored to have 20 players on its shortlist, according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). To finalize a strong 15-man lineup for the big competition later this year, the choice was decided on Sunday at the board’s Annual General Meeting.

These 20 players would be rotated throughout the team’s upcoming assignments, according to Cricbuzz, to guarantee proper competition preparations. Before choosing the team, head coach Rahul Dravid, captain Rohit Sharma, NCA chairman VVS Laxman, and top selector Chetan Sharma met in a Mumbai hotel for more than four hours. Roger Binny, president of the BCCI, joined the meeting via video conference.

It was a very productive discussion where we discussed past results and made plans for upcoming events including the World Cup and the World Test Championship (WTC). We’ll prioritize international cricket while making sure the IPL doesn’t suffer, a BCCI source was cited as saying in the newspaper. BCCI shortlists 20 players.
