BCCI takes three major steps after T20 WC defeat review meeting with Rahul Dravid & Rohit Sharma


With an eye on the 2023 ODI World Cup in India, the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has shortlisted a pool of 20 players.

Top Indian players will also be asked to skip the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), with the BCCI wanting players to focus on ICC events, and to avoid injury problems.

The decision was taken during BCCI’s performance review meeting, which took place at a seven star hotel in Mumbai. In attendance were coach Rahul Dravid, Captain Rohit Sharma, NCA chairman VVS Laxman, ex Chief selector Chetan Sharma. Board President Roger Binny joined through video conferencing.

Team India will play 35 ODIs in 2023, starting with an upcoming three-match series against Sri Lanka on home soil.

BCCI also had issued the following three recommendation

1. The emerging players will have to play a substantial domestic season to be eligible for selection to the national team.

2. The Yo-Yo Test and Dexa will now be part of selection criteria and implemented in the customized roadmaps of the central pool of players.

3. Keeping in mind the Men’s FTP and preparations for ICC CWC 2023, the NCA will work in tandem with the IPL Franchisee to monitor the targeted Indian players participating in the IPL 2023.
