Twenty players have been picked by the BCCI to compete in the 2023 Men’s World Cup. The BCCI decided to rotate these players at the review meeting with the top brass of Indian cricket in order to ensure proper training before the 2023 World Cup, which will be held in India.
Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma, Chetan Sharma, and VVS Laxman were in attendance for the meeting. After nearly four hours of deliberation in a Mumbai city hotel, the group made important decisions, including giving priority to bilateral and international cricket. Roger Binny, president of the BCCI, participated in the meeting via video conferencing.
“It was a very constructive and fruitful meeting where we have reviewed the past performance and planned for the future events, including World Cup and World Test Championship (WTC). We will give preference for international cricket while making sure the IPL is not diluted,” a BCCI source, who attended the meeting, said (CRICBUZZ).
“The issues of player availability, workload management and fitness parameters were also discussed at length during the meeting along with the roadmap to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023,” the BCCI said.
Among the decisions taken, BCCI said that the National Cricket Academy (NCA) will “work in tandem with the IPL Franchisee to monitor the targeted Indian players participating in the IPL 2023”, emphasizing the unit as the nodal centre for the fitness of Indian players (REPORTS).
