The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 has burst onto the scene with resounding energy, bringing together cricketing giants from across the globe for the tournament’s 13th edition. With ten formidable teams in contention, each vying for the coveted trophy, cricket enthusiasts worldwide are in a frenzy, analyzing the potential frontrunners. Amidst this excitement, the spotlight turns to former Pakistan pacer, Mohammad Amir, who offers his unique perspective on the three pivotal Indian players he believes could steer their team to World Cup glory.
The ten competing nations
This quadrennial extravaganza features a diverse lineup of ten nations: India, Australia, England, New Zealand, Pakistan, Netherlands, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, South Africa and Bangladesh. The tournament kicked off with a riveting showdown between reigning champions England and New Zealand.

Mohammad Amir’s singular perspective
In the midst of fervent discussions and in-depth analyses of team strengths, Amir offers a fresh perspective. The renowned left-arm pacer, celebrated for his on-field heroics, holds a strong belief that India holds the key to World Cup glory, contingent on the consistent performance of three-star players throughout the tournament.
Three-crucial players for India
During his appearance on Pakistan’s popular show, Hasna Mana Hai, Amir expressed his views with unwavering confidence. He pinpointed Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah as the linchpin players capable of leading India to World Cup victory.
“Agar ye teen bande from Day 1 se perform karenge naa—Bumrah, Rohit aur Kohli—India final jeetega,” (If these three individuals – Bumrah, Rohit, and Kohli – deliver from day one, India will triumph in the final,”) Amir said.
It’s worth noting that India haven’t clinched an ICC trophy since their triumphant campaign in the 2013 Champions Trophy, when MS Dhoni‘s team emerged victorious against England in the final at Edgbaston.
