Fox Cricket picks ICC World Cup 2023 XI; Rohit Sharma dropped; Jasprit Bumrah named captain 

With the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2023 just a sleep away from now, Fox Cricket has named their XI of the tournament. They have dropped Indian captain Rohit Sharma and it came as a surprise because the opening batter has destroyed the batting lineups and has scored over 500 runs. 

Another surprising element in the ICC World Cup 2023 XI of Fox cricket was the captain picked by them. They named Indian seamer Jasprit Bumrah as the leader of the team. The fast bowler has been exceptional with the ball in the tournament and has bowled impressive lines and lengths in all the games. 

Quinton de Kock, who has scored around 600 runs in the tournament, along with David Warner are the two openers picked by them in their XI. The Australian opener is amongst the leading run-getters as well in the tournament and has played some breathtaking knocks.

At No.3, they have slotted Rachin Ravindra, who has been nothing short of exceptional in the ICC World Cup 2023. The Kiwi player has over 500 runs and also has chipped in with the ball as well. Virat Kohli, who originally bats at No.3, has been picked by Fox Cricket at No.4. He’s the leading run-getter with 595 runs to his name. 

Fox cricket has picked four all-rounders in their ICC World Cup 2023 team of the tournament. The likes of Azmatullah Omarzai, Glenn Maxwell, Ravindra Jadeja and Marco Jansen were included in the team. All of these players have contributed equally well with both bat and ball in the tournament. 

Alongside Ravindra Jadeja, Adam Zampa is the other spinner in the team picked by Fox Cricket. The Australian spinner has been staggering and is the leading wicket-taker with 22 wickets to his name. Jasprit Bumrah along with Sri Lanka’s Dilshan Madushanka are the two front-line pacers picked by them.
