Shardul Thakur is the real 'Team Man', made it clear by his own statement; Big talk about World Cup 2023

Shardul Thakur won everyone's hearts by bowling a killer in the ODI series played against West Indies. All-rounder and fast bowler Shardul took a total of 8 wickets in 3 matches of the ODI series and broke the back of the Windies team. In the third ODI, he took 4 wickets for 37 runs, which was the best performance of his career.
The kind of game shown by Shardul Thakur in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj is believed to have confirmed his place in the 2023 World Cup. After this deadly performance, Shardul won the hearts of the fans with his statement during the post-match presentation. He said that his aim is to win the team, but he never plays for sure in his place.
In fact, Shardul Thakur has staked his claim for the World Cup 2023 by performing well against the West Indies. He emerged as the most successful bowler in the series against West Indies, taking 4 for 37 in 3 matches. In such a situation, considering his excellent performance, the team management would like to give him maximum opportunities.
During the post-match presentation, Shardul said that I am very happy after taking 8 wickets in this series. As a cricketer, I waited a lot for this, but sometimes you perform well, and sometimes you don't. Whatever series I play, my confidence grows and I am gaining experience by playing that.
Shardul further said that I never played thinking that I have to do well so that I can confirm my place. Because I can't play the game with that mindset. I'm not that kind of player. If I am not selected for the World Cup squad then there is nothing I can do about it. This decision is theirs. I just always think of performing well for the team.
Please tell that since the year 2019 ODI World Cup, Shardul Thakur has taken a total of 52 wickets. During this, he said I think I did not play a single ODI series, I mean I was not part of the team in the series against Sri Lanka at home. I don't know why I was not selected then, but I have been a part of it. I think the team has some expectations from me that's why I have been kept on the team. Whenever I get a chance to play.
