Team India did not have a fruitful 2022 season. Despite being full of superstars, the Men in Blue lost in two major tournaments – Asia Cup and T20 World Cup – drawing criticism from all quarters. However, India maintained its bilateral supremacy by beating England, South Africa and Australia at home.
Now in the year 2023, Team India has two chances to end their title drought as the Asia Cup and highly anticipated 50-over World Cup will take place this year. The Men in Blue will also play numerous bilateral matches to finalize their roster for the main events. Furthermore, India also has a chance to win the World Test Championship (WTC) finals as they are the main contenders to play the top battle.
