After a disappointing defeat in the recently concluded World Test Championship Final 2023, Indian squad is finally gearing up for the biggest clash, the ODI World Cup 2023, slated to be organised in the Indian subcontinent in the months of October and November. Due to obvious reasons, all eyes will be on the Indian squad, and the team is expected to end the 10-year-long ICC trophy drought.
Given the magnitude of the competition, the selectors are unlikely to make huge changes in the squad, but like every time, there will surely be some surprising calls. In this article, we will have a look at three youngsters, who deserve to be a part of India’s ODI World Cup squad.
1. Yashasvi Jaiswal
Yashasvi Jaiswal is undoubtedly one of the top names who deserve to be a part of India’s ODI World Cup squad. Jaiswal was Rajasthan Royals’ standout player in the recently concluded season of the Indian Premier League. His exemplary performance with his bat left everyone impressed, and in no time, the 21-year-old lad became a household name.
The RR opener scored 625 runs in 14 matches averaging at 48.08, with a combination of five half centuries and one century in the 2023 season of the cash-rich league. Not only this, but Jaiswal was also named the Emerging Player of the Season. In addition, this youngster was also one of India’s stand-by players in the WTC Final 2023.
