All the teams are ready for ODI World Cup 2023. This big tournament is to be played in India from October 5. In the first match of this tournament, the last champion team England is going to face New Zealand. The England team seems to be ready before the World Cup and they have recently given proof of this by defeating New Zealand in a home series. But there is a big weakness in the England team also. Actually, his team’s star batsman Joe Root is going through very bad form. Meanwhile, the board has now taken a big decision regarding the route.

Root will play series against Ireland

Actually, Joe Root is going to play in the upcoming 3-match ODI series against Ireland. England has announced a 13-man squad for the match against Ireland under the captaincy of Jack Crowley. This team did not include any player from the team selected for the World Cup, but Root expressed his desire to play in the first ODI, after which he was included in the team in place of star batsman Harry Brook.

Brook recently joined the team

Let us tell you that Brook was not initially a part of England’s World Cup provisional team but later he was included in the main team in place of opener Jason Roy. England national selector Luke Wright said that Root himself expressed his desire to play in the first ODI against Ireland. Wright said that Root wants to spend some more time at the crease and it is good that a player wants to contribute as much as possible from his side. Just when we thought he needed some rest, he wanted to play one more match.
