Rohit Sharma-led side will bank on home support as they look to add a third ODI World Cup title to their trophy cabinet
India come into the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup on the back of a strong showing at Asia Cup 2023 where they crushed Sri Lanka in the final by bowling the Lions out for 50 runs. India indeed have one of the most fearsome bowling attack featuring fit again Jasprit Bumrah, and wily Ravichandran Ashwin, who returned to the squad after Axar Patel missed out due to injury.

Batting remains strong as ever with Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer in the side. One deficiency could be that of a batting all-rounder. The role, however, could filled in by either Hardik Pandya or Shardul Thakur.
