It is great to see the name of Jasprit Bumrah on the team. He is certainly an important pillar, and he is going to ensure that early wickets are going to be taken with the new ball. Due to his lower back injury, he was out of the team for almost a year. But the Indian fans are really happy to see the name of their favorite bowler. 

Ajit Agarkar, the chairman of the selection committee of the BCCI, had backed KL Rahul. Agarkar mentioned that KL Rahul has picked up skylight discomfort, and because of that, he will not be able to play a few matches in the Asia Cup. However, he is completely fit for the World Cup 2023. 

Rohit Sharma backed Hardik Pandya, by mentioning that he is a complete package for the team. His presence is going to be very important for the squad. He is an all-rounder, and that is going to ensure that he makes a contribution in both areas. 

Overall the most surprising name in the squad is definitely KL Rahul. Not many people were expecting his name in the squad. That is because lately, he has not been in very good form. But still, his name is there in the squad. It also shows the faith selection committee and captain KL Rahul.
