Hardik Pandya and Ishan Kishan batted brilliantly against Pakistan to bail them out of danger. They will be crucial in the batting order for India in the upcoming World Cup. KL Rahul has also proved his fitness to secure a spot in the squad.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 is only days away, taking place from 5 Oct. – 19 Nov., across ten venues in India.
