Cricket Australia (CA) have today named the 15-man squad for the ODI World Cup 2023 that will be led by Pat Cummins. The likes of Steve Smith, David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, etc have all been selected but there was no room for Marnus Labuschagne.

Furthermore, T20I specialist Tim David has also been ignored from the squad. Also, Nathan Ellis and Tanveer Sangha have been excluded from the 15-man squad.

Selection chief George Bailey said that he was confident that the likes of Smith, Cummins (both nursing wrist injuries), Starc (groin) and Maxwell (ankle) will return to action for the 3-match ODI series against India.

"All are well placed to come back online in the coming weeks and potentially for selection in the upcoming series against India," selection chief George Bailey was quoted on Cricket.com.au.

"There are eight one-day matches still to play in South Africa and India before the final squad is due to be declared.

"They are followed by two World Cup practice games, which offers plenty of opportunity to continue the build for the tournament."

All-rounder Sean Abbott was picked ahead of pacer Nathan Ellis wheraes the spin duo of Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa too made the cut. Alex Carey and Josh Inglis are the two wicketkeeper-batters included in the squad.
