Five Players Suddenly Included in the World Cup 2023 Squad, Like a Lottery

World Cup 2023: he sudden inclusion of five players in the World Cup squad has been like winning a lottery for them. It’s worth mentioning that the first match of the World Cup will be played on October 5th between England and New Zealand in Ahmedabad. Despite not being in the provisional squads, these five players have earned a place in their respective World Cup teams.

  1. Ravichandran Ashwin (India): The 37-year-old Indian off-spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin, was not initially included in India’s provisional World Cup squad. However, due to Axar Patel’s injury, Ashwin was called up for the Australia series, and his impressive performance in that series secured his spot in the final World Cup squad. Ashwin’s inclusion adds variety to the bowling attack, and he can be a trump card against left-handed batsmen in the opposition.
  2. Harry Brook (England): Harry Brook’s sudden entry into England’s World Cup squad came as a surprise. He was selected in the squad in place of Jason Roy, one of the key players who helped England win the 2019 World Cup. Brook now has the opportunity to make an impact on the world stage.
  3. Hasan Ali (Pakistan): Hasan Ali has been included in Pakistan’s World Cup squad, replacing the fast bowler Naseem Shah. Hasan Ali’s selection was a bit unexpected as he had been out of the team since June. Now, it remains to be seen if he can contribute to Pakistan’s campaign.
  4. Marnus Labuschagne (Australia): Marnus Labuschagne, who wasn’t initially part of Australia’s provisional squad, has found a spot in the World Cup team, replacing the injured Ashton Agar. Labuschagne is known for his all-round skills, and his inclusion adds depth to Australia’s squad.
  5. Andile Phehlukwayo (South Africa): South African all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo has been added to the World Cup squad after the injury to Sisanda Magala. He brings a combination of batting and bowling abilities to the team, making him a valuable addition.

These late inclusions have added intrigue to the World Cup squads, and fans will be eager to see how these players perform on the world stage.
