Asia Cup 2022: Another good news for team India ahead of Asia Cup 2022 as both the match winners of team India, destructive opener Kl Rahul is all set to make his return ahead of Asia Cup, and India’s fast bowler Deepak Chahar also confirms that he is available for Asia Cup and is fully fit now and would like to contribute in team’s victory and he also added that he aims to win the T20 WC for India. However the Asia Cup 2022 squad of Team India will be selected on 08th August 2022 and KL Rahul, and Deepak will be aiming to make it into the team.
Now, it would be interesting to see if, the BCCI Selection committee headed by Chetan Sharma will pick a team of 17 members instead of 15 for Asia Cup keeping these two-match winners in mind. KL Rahul who is currently recovering from his injury has been left out of Zimbabwe tour after he got infected with Covid-19 and which also delayed his hernia injury.
A BCCI source also told that “KL Rahul doesn’t need to prove anything. He is a class player. Whenever he plays T20, it is always as a specialist opener and that would continue. Surya and Rishabh are set to play as specialist middle-order batters going forward”. This also suggests that Kl Rahul will be the first choice for team India for Asia Cup and WC T20 to open with Rohit Sharma.
Talking of the Asia Cup team India is scheduled to take on arch-rivals Pakistan in their opening encounter in Asia Cup on Sunday, 28th August 2022.
India’s probable XI for Asia Cup 2022:
Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (Wk), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Mohammed Shami
