Team India Senior Players Concentrate On Test And ODI: Changes are certain in the coming time in the Indian cricket team. There has been talk of removing senior players from the team after the recent defeat in the T20 World Cup played in Australia. In the T20 World Cup 2022, questions were raised on the fitness of the players of the Indian team and their intentions. Now the Indian team wants to play in T20 with young players and young captain like England.
Senior players will focus on Test and ODI
A source in the Board of Control for Cricket in India told news agency PTI, Team India’s upcoming schedule is full of Test and ODI cricket. In the year 2023, two ICC trophies will be on the line. That’s why the Indian team will focus on the longer format. The management will hope to shape and establish a new brand of cricket by then keeping the 2024 T20 World Cup in mind. According to the source, the board does not ask any player to retire. It is a personal decision. But yes, in 2023 very few T20 matches will be played. During this, most of the senior players will focus on ODI and Test cricket. The source said, if you don’t want to then you don’t need to announce your retirement. You will not see most of the senior players playing T20 cricket next year. Recently, the Indian team won the T20 series 1-0 in New Zealand under the leadership of Hardik Pandya.
India has qualified
A win in the Test series against Bangladesh can keep India in the race for the final of the World Test Championship. But to reach the final, they will have to win the home Test series against Australia next year. In the year 2023, ODI World Cup should be played on Indian soil. Being the host, India has already qualified in this tournament.
