Indian Players Waiting for Debut in 2023

The Indian cricket squad is moving in a new direction. The amount of people who come to the national team's door has risen with each passing season. As a result, very few people can be said to have a spot in the team locked up. While seniority should be taken into account, it is unethical to ignore how young players are performing. As a result, commencing in 2023, the Indian team may undergo radical changes. The BCC may make a number of significant choices, including appointing Hardik Pandya as the new T20 captain in place of Rohit Sharma. India intends to confine Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Rohit Sharma to ODIs while developing the next generation in T20.

India's Loss to South Africa in ODI: A Review

  The ODI series versus South Africa was an unforeseen tragedy for team India and coach Rahul Dravid. India lost the series 3-0, and experts including the Indian coach believes the first and third matches were lost due to "bad shots." The recent ODI results of the current South African team hasn’t been enviable. India wasn’t expected to lose the ODI series, in this manner.
