Shubman Gill - A Run-Scoring Machine

Among the young talents in the Indian team, Shubman Gill has shown immense potential. In the lead-up to the World Cup 2023, Gill has the opportunity to make a significant impact. With 665 runs more, he can become the highest run-scorer in an ODI calendar year, surpassing the legendary Sachin Tendulkar's record of 1,894 runs. Gill's consistent performances and elegant stroke play make him one to watch out for in the tournament.


Virat Kohli - The Quest for 50 Centuries

One of the most prominent records that is within reach for the Indian team is the number of centuries scored by Virat Kohli. The star batter needs just three more centuries to become the first cricketer to achieve 50 tons in ODIs. Currently, Sachin Tendulkar holds the record with 49 centuries. If Kohli manages to achieve this feat during the World Cup 2023, it will be a historic moment not only for him but for Indian cricket as well.

Rohit Sharma - Chasing Tendulkar's Hundred Record

Another Indian player who has the chance to etch his name in the record books is none other than Skipper Rohit Sharma. Known for his explosive batting, Sharma has already created a substantial impact in limited-overs cricket. With six centuries in World Cup matches, he shares the record with Sachin Tendulkar. However, if Sharma manages to score one more hundred in the upcoming World Cup, he will become the highest century-maker in the tournament's history, surpassing Tendulkar's record.

Rohit Sharma - The Six-Hitting Maestro


Apart from the century record, Rohit Sharma also has the opportunity to become the highest six-hitter in international cricket. Currently, he is just three sixes away from surpassing the legendary West Indian opener Chris Gayle's record of 553 sixes. Sharma's ability to clear the ropes effortlessly has made him one of the most feared batsmen in the modern era. Breaking this record would not only be a personal achievement but also a testament to his explosive batting prowess.


Mohammed Shami - The Wicket-Taking Phenomenon


When it comes to the bowling department, Mohammed Shami has the chance to etch his name in World Cup history. Currently, he is 13 wickets away from becoming the highest Indian wicket-taker in World Cup matches. With 44 wickets, he is on the verge of surpassing Zaheer Khan and Javagal Srinath's record. Shami's ability to swing the ball and pick up crucial wickets has played a significant role in India's success in recent years.

India - A Host's Advantage

Apart from individual records, Team India also has the opportunity to create history as a unit. If they manage to emerge victorious in the World Cup 2023, they will become the first-ever side to win the tournament consecutively as a host. Having won the World Cup in 2011 when it was last hosted by India, this achievement would solidify their dominance in the cricketing world. The home advantage coupled with the talent and experience of the Indian team makes this goal within reach.


The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 presents a historic opportunity for Team India to break records and leave a lasting legacy in the cricketing world. From Virat Kohli's quest for 50 centuries to Rohit Sharma's pursuit of becoming the highest century-maker and six-hitter, the Indian team has several milestones to aim for. Additionally, Shubman Gill and Mohammed Shami have the chance to etch their names in the record books with their exceptional performances. As the tournament approaches, the cricketing world eagerly awaits to witness if Team India can fulfill these aspirations and create history once again.
