It’s likely that Ravichandran Ashwin won’t make the bus for the forthcoming ICC World Cup in India in 2023. He hasn’t played in an ODI since a long time ago since the selection committee has tried other bowlers. Due to his inability to secure his spot in the game’s 50-over format, Suryakumar Yadav may also not play in the upcoming international competition.
The new chief selector, Ajit Agarkar, is in Trinidad to consult with skipper Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid on crucial matters.
“Ashwin can’t be ruled out. He has bowled effectively on Indian pitches, so the selectors will make a decision. Ajit is with the West Indies and will talk to Rohit and Dravid about the squads for the Asia Cup and World Cup, a BCCI official with knowledge of the situation told InsideSport.
The off-spinner, however, is not benefiting from the situation. The primary spinner in white-ball cricket is Ravindra Jadeja. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav come after him. In white-ball cricket, Axar Patel has been unstoppable.
Suryakumar Yadav, on the other hand, hasn’t amassed enough runs in one-day internationals to warrant a spot in the Indian team. KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer are almost completely fit, therefore SKY’s days appear numbered.
