‘I’m very confident that he’ll be part of the 2023 World Cup,’ Dinesh Karthik says of Mohammed Siraj’s place in the ODI team.


Karthik expects him to take 300 wickets in the game’s longest format.

In what could be a major boost for Indian cricket fans, former Indian wicket-keeper and commentator Dinesh Karthik has expressed his confidence that fast bowler Mohammed Siraj will be a key part of India’s squad for the 2023 World Cup.

Karthik, who played 26 Tests and 94 ODIs for India, spoke highly of Siraj’s recent performances and said that the young pacer has the potential to become one of the best fast bowlers in the world.

“I’m very sure that he (Siraj) would be part of the 2023 World Cup squad. He has impressed everyone with his performances in the last few months and has shown that he has the skills to succeed at the highest level,” Karthik said in an interview.

Siraj, who made his debut for India in the longest format of the game against Australia in December 2020, has been in impressive form in recent times. He was India’s leading wicket-taker in the Test series against England and played a key role in India’s historic Test series win in Australia earlier this year.

Karthik, who has been closely following Siraj’s progress, believes that the 27-year-old’s ability to swing the ball both ways and bowl at a good pace makes him a valuable asset for India.

“He has the ability to swing the ball both ways and can bowl at a good pace, which is a rare combination. He has also shown that he has the temperament to perform under pressure, which is crucial in big tournaments like the World Cup,” Karthik said.

India, who won the World Cup in 1983 and 2011, will be looking to add a third title to their name in 2023. With the likes of Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in their bowling attack, India will have a formidable lineup to challenge the best teams in the world.

The 2023 World Cup is scheduled to be held in India and is expected to be a major spectacle for cricket fans around the world. With Karthik’s vote of confidence, Siraj will be hoping to continue his good form and cement his place in India’s squad for the tournament.
