Washington Sundar has been injury prone but being an off-spinner is an ideal replacement for off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who may be dropped from ODI World Cup 2023 squad as he had an underwhelming T20 World Cup 2022. Washington Sundar debuted way back in December 2017 but has only featured in 12 ODIs. He may be included in ODI WC 2023 squad for his age of 23 years being on his side and since he’s an off-spinner.
He was in the Indian playing XI in the ODI series against Bangladesh where he scored 67 runs and picked 6 wickets averaging 9.33. He has picked 14 scalps in 12 ODIs at 23.5 and scored 212 runs at 35.33. More experienced spin all-rounders Ravichandran Ashwin or even now-fit Ravindra Jadeja could have replaced him in IND vs NZ ODIs.
