India’s head coach Rahul Dravid has admitted that team management has narrowed down ’17-18’ players for the forthcoming ODI World Cup at home.
While Team India has a big task ahead of them in the form of 3rd ODI against Australia at Chepauk stadium on Wednesday, Rahul Dravid believes its result will hardly affect their plan for World Cup 2023.
“I think, to a large extent, we are pretty clear about the squad and players we want,” Dravid said a press conference. “We have almost sort of narrowed It down to 17-18 players. We have a few guys who are sort of recovering from injuries and might come into the mix, depending on the time frame of their recoveries and how long it takes for them to come back,” Dravid said.
The retired Indian cricketer further said that the team is in a pretty much good space and clear about the kind of combination they want to field.
“Hopefully, we are able to give these guys who have zeroes in as many playing opportunities as we can. If in India, great, but even if not in India, it’s just a matter of ensuring that they get as many as opportunities as you can give them to build a side,” Dravid added.
