ASIA CUP INDIA SQUAD 2023
Asia Cup India Squad: India last won the Asia Cup in 2018 which was 5 years ago. So Rohit Sharma and his team are desperate to make the strongest team possible to bring the trophy back home for Asia Cup 2023.
The team of 15 players has not been officially announced yet. But fans are eagerly waiting for that. The team for Asia Cup 2023 should be a prelude to the ODI World Cup 2023. So Team India is going to make the best team possible. But as a drawback, a few of the top players are still recovering from injuries. “Asia Cup India Squad”
With around 40 days left for Asia Cup 2023 let’s predict the most befitting playing 15 for Asia Cup 2023.
TEAM INDIA MOST POSSIBLE PLAYING 15 FOR ASIA CUP 2023
TOP ORDER BATSMEN:
Rohit Sharma ( C), Virat Kholi, Shubman Gill, Surya Kumar Yadav.
Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shubman Gill are almost confirmed top-order batters of team India for all the ODI matches. It’s a plus point that all three of them are in good form now.
Shreyas Iyer is still recovering from injury and he might not be fit enough to join the team for Asia Cup 2023. So Surya Kumar Yadav is going to be the most prominent choice for that position. Yadav proved to be an important factor for Team India from time to time. But he is yet to set a remarkable mark in ODIs though. “Asia Cup India Squad”
WICKET KEEPER (S):
In the absence of Rishabh Pant (who faced a serious accident a few months ago) and KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson are going to be the possible choices. Ishan Kishan is an opener and wicket-keeper while Samson plays as a WK and middle-order batsman.
Rishabh Pant still needs 3 to 4 months to be back in the field but KL Rahul can make a possible comeback even before Asia Cup 2023.
So it will be quite interesting to see whom team India is going to pick as the wicketkeeper batter out of these three.
From the previous records, Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul are going to be India’s first choice for wicketkeepers. So Team India is left with two options. They have to choose between Sanju Samson, the WK middle-order batsman, and Axar Patel, the all-rounder. “Asia Cup India Squad”
Who do you think India is going to opt for?
Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel.
But even if Axar Patel gets selected it’s very unlikely that he will be in the playing 11, unless Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja get injured.
Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.
There shouldn’t be any confusion for the team India spinners as Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are team India’s best spinners in ODI format. Most probably the team is not going to make any exception in this case. “Asia Cup India Squad”
Jasprit Bumrah, Md. Siraj, Md. Shami, Shardul Thakur.
There is no doubt about Bumrah in playing 11 but the main problem is his fitness. Team India’s best pacer is recovering from injuries for a long time and hasn’t played in any recent matches so far. But thankfully the speed of his recovery is quite impressive and Bumrah is expected to be back in the field ahead of Asia Cup 2023.
If Bumrah can join Md. Shami and Md. Siraj the trio is definitely going to be the leading pacers of Team India. Then only one more place will be available. Team India has to choose between Shardul Thakur and Umran Malik. “Asia Cup India Squad”
The experience of Shardul Thakur is quite decent in International big matches and Umran Malik still doesn’t have any.
So is Team India going to take a chance by adding Umran Malik to the squad who can be an important factor or are they going to play safe by adding Shardul Thakur to the team?
Well, only time can tell.
