The Indian team is busy preparing for the ODI World Cup 2023. Team India has won the ODI series against New Zealand, before that Sri Lanka was also defeated at home. Team India’s batsmen performed strongly during this period, but at the same time the bowling unit is also spreading its fire. If we look at the current form and combination, then the pace battery of the Indian team is fully prepared for the ODI World Cup.
The trio of Shami-Bumrah and Siraj
Jasprit Bumrah has been out of the field for a long time due to injury. But it is clear that when he returns, he will be leading the pace battery of Team India. Jasprit Bumrah has been the most successful bowler for India in recent times, who has won many matches on his own. It is believed that Jasprit Bumrah can make a strong comeback after IPL or IPL.
Apart from Bumrah, if we look at other options, then Mohammed Shami has once again appeared in colour. Shami has so far taken 4 wickets in the first two matches of the ODI series against New Zealand. In the second ODI, he took three wickets and got rid of the sixes of the New Zealand team. Due to his strong bowling, the New Zealand team collapsed on 108. Earlier, he was in good form in the Sri Lanka series as well.

Good news for Team India has come from Mohammad Siraj, who has done wonders in ODI cricket. Till now Siraj was spreading his fire in the Test format, but now in ODIs since he has returned to the team, he is appearing with a new talent. He has taken 5 wickets in the first 2 matches of the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand, before that he took 9 wickets in the Sri Lanka series.
In such a situation, it is believed that Team India is moving ahead on the basis of this pace battery till the World Cup. However, apart from these, many backups are also present with Team India. In which Hardik Pandya is now continuously becoming a bowling option and is bowling many overs. Along with this, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Shardul Thakur are also in the squad of Team India.
