Dravid told the master plan for the World Cup: Said - Full strength ODI team from January, will be seen till the World Cup
Team India has also lost the ODI series to Bangladesh after New Zealand. In the series in three ODIs, Bangladesh has won the series by winning 2 consecutive matches. On Tuesday, Bangladesh defeated India by 5 runs in the second match.
After the defeat of the match, coach Rahul Dravid told the master plan for the ODI World Cup. He said that from January there will be a full-strength team, which will be seen playing till the World Cup.
In response to a question, Dravid said that the schedule has been hectic for the last three-four months. New Zealand also did not have a full ODI team. At the same time, on the tour of Bangladesh, the team had to struggle with injuries. I am hopeful that if there are no injuries to the players and everything goes well, then from January, we will have full strength, which will play continuously for eight-nine months till the World Cup is held in October-November. We have nine ODIs (three against New Zealand, three against Sri Lanka and three against Australia) before the IPL and hope we get a stable team for these matches.
Dravid praised the young players. He said that Umran played in the second ODI and impressed a lot. At the same time, Kuldeep Sen, who made his debut, also bowled brilliantly. Shardul Thakur, Akshar Patel and Washington Sundar also played brilliantly. Senior players including Shreyas Iyer, and KL Rahul also performed well on this tour. However, the results were not in our favour.
There is bad news for Team India, which has lost the series, that captain Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar will not play in the next match. Dravid gave this information in the press conference. He said that Rohit got hurt while fielding. He has gone back to Mumbai. He, Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar will not play in the next match.
Kuldeep Sen had complained of back strain after the debut match. At the same time, Deepak Chahar also got hurt in the second match.
Injury has become a headache for Team India. Prior to Rohit and Kuldeep Sen's injury, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja are out of the series. He was also not part of the T20 World Cup team.
