ICC World Cup 2023 India Squad: India’s World Cup squad has been announced, but how can Sanju Samson get a chance?
ICC World Cup 2023 India Squad: Initially, Sanju Samson there was no chance in the Asia Cup 2023, it was expected that the World Cup would open the door. But even that didn’t happen for Sanju Samson. He has been replaced by unfit KL Rahul. Sanju’s performance in the Ireland series was not consistent. He has performed mixed. But why he was not given a chance in the World Cup is a big question. However, this is not the first time that Sanju Samson has been dropped several times in the past. Even if he is fit, he is not taken. Significantly, none of the Rajasthan Royals’ Sanju Samson, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Prasidh Krishna got a chance in the World Cup squad.
But this is not the end, because even if the World Cup squad is announced, there is room for change. Changes to the World Cup squad can be made by September 27. As a result, it is not possible to say right now that the World Cup tour is over for these three. However, fans are disappointed with Sanju Samson’s omission from the preliminary squad. If there is any talk about giving a chance to someone in the national team, it is Sanju. Not only the Asia Cup or the World Cup, Sanju did not get a chance in the Asian Games team. As a result, Sanju is not likely to be seen in the national team jersey till the World Cup.
Talking about the formation of the team, Rohit Sharma said, “It is not bad to have so many people fighting for one place. The challenge increases and the fight becomes harder. But we have to see who is in form, and who can play against which team. It remains to be seen which player can make more of an impact in the situation. In cricket, we have to make tough decisions.”

Captain Rohit Sharma has picked Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul. There will be no third wicketkeeper in the team. However, the big question is how much injury-prone KL Rahul can pull. He’s coming back from injury, and it’s not clear how much he can give in the game. On the one hand, the pressure of playing matches and on the other hand, excessive travel.
Sanju’s return depends on KL Rahul’s injury. If Rahul is fit, Then Sanju is not likely to return. KL Rahul is scheduled to return for the Asia Cup Super Four match. There has been no recent update on him.
