Team India’s dominance in the 2023 World Cup was shattered in the final by Australia, leaving the Men in Blue to contemplate their future in the tournament. As the team looks towards the next World Cup in 2027, questions arise about the longevity of several players in the current squad.
Here are three Indian players who might not be part of the ODI World Cup picture in the future:
Despite being picked ahead of Sanju Samson, Suryakumar Yadav failed to make a significant impact in the tournament. His lackluster performance, coupled with his age of 33, makes it unlikely for him to feature in the next World Cup.
The 37-year-old off-spinner’s inclusion in the squad was a surprise, and his limited playing time further suggests that his ODI career is nearing its end. With the emergence of younger spinners, Ashwin’s chances of making the 2027 World Cup squad are slim.
While Rohit Sharma’s batting prowess was undeniable in the 2023 World Cup, his age of 36 raises concerns about his longevity in the ODI format.
