The Cricket World Cup will be held in India from October 5, which will run till November 19. A total of 10 countries will play in this. India will play its first match against Australia on 8 October. Many players in the Indian squad can remain out due to injury, a big name in this is Rishabh Pant. Apart from him, doubt remains on Joffra Archer of England, Kane Williamson of New Zealand. Let us tell you which are the players on whom doubt remains.
Let’s talk about Rishabh Pant first. His condition had worsened after the accident, but now he is fine and recovering fast. The BCCI has not yet kept him out of the consideration of the World Cup squad, but it is very difficult for him to play. Pant’s knee was injured in a car accident, which also underwent surgery. Now Pant has started walking without support, but he is hardly seen playing any cricket match this year. Pant’s playing in the World Cup is negligible.
The very first match of IPL 2023 was the last match for Williamson. Williamson was injured while fielding in that match. He was hurt while fielding at the boundary line. After this he did not return to the cricket field. After this he returned to his homeland with the help of crutches. His operation has been successful, he has also started light exercise in the gym. The head coach has also said about him that he is not yet out of the World Cup team. Well, his playing time is also questionable because his injury was serious and going on the field without being fully fit could add to his woes. It is very difficult for him to play in the World Cup.
Jasprit Bumrah, the important bowler of the Indian cricket team, is running away from cricket for the last 1 year. He also played against Australia last year after suffering an injury, but in the middle of the series, his problems increased and he was back out. However, the good news about him right now is that he has started bowling and is recovering well. He can return from the series against Ireland, if he does not return here also then it will be very difficult for him to play in the World Cup. Suspense is on Bumrah.
Jofra Archer, the fast bowler of the England cricket team, is going through a very difficult time right now. Archer, who has been suffering from injury for a long time, did return to T20 league cricket this year, but then the injury troubled him. Archer was again ruled out of the entire England summer season with a stress fracture in his right elbow. With the World Cup now less than 100 days away, his full recovery is doubtful. It has to be seen when he returns to the field, although looking at the current situation, it seems very difficult for him to play in the World Cup.
Tamim Iqbal, the captain of the Bangladesh cricket team, has been in the headlines for quite some time now. He announced his retirement in a tearful press conference, but the next day he did a U-turn. He reversed the decision after meeting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The Prime Minister asked him to do so. Well, he is currently nursing an injury and is not fully fit. It is difficult for Tamim Iqbal to play in the World Cup, but let’s see how he recovers from his injury. If Tamim remains healthy, he will lead Bangladesh in this big tournament to be held in India.
