World Cup 2023: Virat Kohli named captain of the Australian cricket team for the tournament, Rohit Sharma absent – Magazine Creations

India vs New Zealand, ICC World Cup semi-final: The Indian cricket team produced its strongest performance in the 2023 World Cup so far, as the Rohit Sharma-led team entered the knockout stages without losing even a single match. It was a worthwhile effort from Team India as both the batsmen and bowlers shone, but of course, some individual players left an indelible mark. With the match moving to the semi-finals from Wednesday, the Australian cricket team announced the team of the tournament for the 2023 World Cup with Indian star Virat Kohli as its captain.

The team has four Indian players, but is surprisingly missing Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, who was exceptional in the ICC World Cup 2023. Apart from Virat Kohli, the other three Indian players are Ravindra Jadeja, pacers Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. . All four Indian players have performed exceptionally well in the 2023 World Cup so far, with Virat Kohli recently hitting 49 tons while spinner Mohammed Shami has been the backbone of the Indian pace attack.

Notably, Cricket Australia has chosen to include players with fewer runs in the ICC World Cup 2023 so far such as David Warner who has 499 runs in the tournament compared to Rohit Sharma’s 503 runs. The Indian skipper played very well and gave Team India a strong opening in almost all the matches.

Two young players who impressed greatly at the 2023 ICC World Cup, New Zealander Racine Ravindra and Sri Lankan Dilshan Madushanka, will find a place in the squad of the tournament for the 2023 World Cup. The squad includes four from India, three each from Australia and South Africa, and one each from New Zealand and Sri Lanka. .
