as such India Bangladesh take on starting on Sunday, seniors such as Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul Virat Kohli All ready to go back as well as one more question. What will be the squad’s composition for the first ODI on 4 December, as the return of the seniors means it will be difficult to play the same eleven that played against New Zealand. With multiple teams, management has a lot of options to deal with.
For example, in the middle ranking, management has plenty of options in Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, and Deepak Hooda. In the end, only the center would make up three, and with Rahul and Virat on board, that seems an unlikely outcome.
Cricketer and former selector Saba Karim was asked if having multiple teams causes anxiety.
We have had to make such decisions (create separate teams) because of the pandemic that hit us. We had to run multiple teams. Another factor that came into the picture was the injuries to some of our experienced players in addition to the workload,” he said on a voice call organized by Sony’s official broadcasters for India’s tour to Bangladesh.
He said that management should select 15-20 players to lead Globalism Trophy and focus only on the selected group. Because it will help those players to play without any fears.
“But for now the focus should be on the upcoming 2023 World Cup. We need a group of maximum 15 players. And these players will be our focus and they will need specific roles.”
“Once that confidence comes in, players can also play freely. Without being disturbed by playing Eleven. This is the environment we need to build.”
He said that the Indian team needed to restructure in regards to white-ball cricket.
“Before we look at individuals, it is important that we look at the management of the team along with the captaincy to look for a restructuring of the way we play white-ball cricket. And now because of the 2023 World Cup, our focus has to be on revamping the way we play the game. White-ball cricket. And once you put that into perspective, the whole ecosystem changes. When I say ecosystem, I’m talking about the players.”
