Rohit Sharma States “Nobody Is Guaranteed A Spot” Ahead of ODI World Cup 2023


The ODI World Cup 2023 is set to start in a couple of months. The teams are finalizing their squad for the mega event. Recently, talking about the team combination for the massive event, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma said that no one is an automatic selection, not even he himself. 

Rohit Sharma comments on team selection

The Indian team has to fill several vacant spots as numerous regular players are down with injuries.

“No one is an automatic selection, even I’m not. We have this thing where nobody is guaranteed a spot,” said Rohit.

India have several selection issues, the middle order and the wicketkeeper’s slot with injuries to Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul. It seems that Pant isn’t expected to be fit in time for the World Cup and there’s uncertainty about Rahul and Iyer’s fitness ahead of the mega event.

Reports suggested that Iyer is getting selected for the three-match T20I series against Ireland, beginning from August 18, to kickstart his World Cup preparations. However, his absence from the squad further put his road to recovery in complete obscurity.

Sharma gave an update on his condition recently and stated that he’s on track to full fitness. It has been noted that Rahul has shown good progress during his rehabilitation and is expected to be back in the team for the Asia Cup 2023.

However, before selection, the batsman will have to prove his match fitness. Rahul will undergo a 50-over match simulation before the Asia Cup to determine whether he will be able to keep wickets for 50 overs.
