The BCCI has narrowed down a pool of 20 players in preparation for the ODI World Cup in India in 2023, sources told NDTV. The BCCI may also request that star players forgo the forthcoming IPL season in order for them to concentrate on ICC competitions and prevent injuries. The choice was made during a performance review meeting held by the BCCI in Mumbai at a seven-star hotel. Coach Rahul Dravid, Captain Rohit Sharma, NCA Chairman VVS Laxman, and former Chief Selector Chetan Sharma were all present. Roger Binny, the board’s president, joined via video conference.

In 2023, Team India will compete in 35 One-Day Internationals (ODIs), beginning with a scheduled home three-match series against Sri Lanka.

The NCA will collaborate with the 10 IPL clubs to monitor the players’ fitness with an emphasis on workload management for the players.

Reviewing Team India’s 2022 performance, which included failing to win both the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup, was the purpose of the meeting.

The BCCI had previously made known the main conclusions from the conference through an official notification.

The BCCI released an official statement stating that “the roadmap for the 2018 ODI World Cup in India was discussed at the meeting, along with problems pertaining to player availability and workload management.”

Regarding the selection criterion, the BCCI also provided the Indian cricket team with three important recommendations.

The main recommendations are as follows:

1. To be eligible for selection to the national team, emerging players must compete in a significant domestic season.

2. The Yo-Yo Test and Dexa will now be used in the central pool of players’ personalized roadmaps and as selection criteria.

3. The NCA will collaborate with the IPL Franchisee to track the targeted Indian players competing in the IPL 2023 while also taking into consideration the Men’s FTP and ICC CWC 2023 preparations.
