BCCI held Team India Senior Men’s – Review Meeting; check the details

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday held the review meeting of the Indian men's cricket team in Mumbai. The meeting was attended by a host of BCCI President Roger Binny, Secretary Jay Shah, captain Rohit Sharma, head coach Rahul Dravid, Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) VVS Laxman and Chairman of Senior Selection Committee Chetan Sharma.

As per the report, a shortlist of 20 players for the ODI World Cup, which is scheduled to be held in India towards the end of the year, was also compiled in the meeting.

The BCCI has also decided that Yo-Yo Test and Dexa will now be part of the selection criteria and implemented in the customized roadmaps of the central pool of players. Yo-Yo Test was previously part of the selection for the Indian team and is now once again being used. The Dexa scan, which is an international standard, will help determine the body fat and bone health of the players.

The players might even have to sit out for a few IPL matches. BCCI stated in a press release, “Keeping in mind the Men’s FTP (Future Tours Programme) and preparations for ICC CWC 2023, the NCA will work in tandem with the IPL Franchisee to monitor the targeted Indian players participating in the IPL 2023.”
