The World Cup 2023 starting eleven was selected by former Australian opener Matthew Hayden and former Indian leg spinner Anil Kumble. Kumble and Hayden did not choose any players from Pakistan for their eleven-man roster, instead choosing five members of the Indian team. Kumble and Hayden chose their starting eleven with the 2023 World Cup league stage in mind.
The 2023 World Cup has finished its league stage and is headed into the knockout round. The nations of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and India advanced to the semifinals. Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium will host the first semi-final between India and New Zealand on Wednesday.
Then, on Thursday, South Africa and Australia will square off at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. Following this, the tournament’s championship game will take place on Sunday at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.
Kumble-Hayden chose the best XI
Anil Kumble, a veteran leg spinner from India, and Matthew Hayden, a veteran opener from Australia, selected their best eleven for the World Cup 2023 league stage with ESPNcricinfo ahead of the knockout matches. Kumble-Hayden expressed confidence in Indian captain Rohit Sharma and South African Quinton de Kock for the opening. In nine matches, Cock amassed 591 runs, while Rohit Sharma amassed 503 runs in the same number of games.
“Quinton de Kock is a great player,” stated Hayden. That is not the case with Rohit Sharma. In the powerplay, both show themselves to be hazardous. Kumble-Hayden expressed faith in Virat Kohli and Rachin Ravindra for numbers three and four. The tournament’s top run scorer is Kohli. Ravindra’s three centuries have demonstrated his value.
Both terrible strikers
Heinrich Klaasen and Glenn Maxwell are Kumble-Hayden’s choices for numbers five and six. “Maxwell and Klaasen for me,” he said. You examine their numbers. Both have excelled at attacking spin and performed well under duress.
These bowlers have been chosen.
Anil Kumble and Matthew Hayden both expressed faith in the bowling abilities of Ravindra Jadeja, Marco Jansen, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, and Adam Zampa. Shami returned to the playing 11 with a powerful showing. The bowler in the competition with the most wickets taken is Zampa.
