Match between India vs Pakistan in Asia Cup 2022 will be played tomorrow. Earlier, BCCI has shared pictures of 11 Indian players, who are practicing on their social media. So know which players’ photos have been shared by BCCI.
Ever since Rohit Sharma took over the captaincy of Team India, the team seems to be creating chaos in T20 cricket. Under his leadership, Team India has not lost a single T20 series so far. Hitman has won many matches for the team in bilateral series.
It is expected that KL Rahul and captain Rohit Sharma will open against Pakistan. KL Rahul did not get a chance to bat in the first match of the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe and was dismissed cheaply in the second match. In the last match of the series, Rahul scored 30 runs in 46 balls.
Virat Kohli is returning to the Asia Cup after a long break. Virat Kohli last scored a century on 14 August 2019 against West Indies. Since then no century has come off his bat. Along with this, the former Indian captain is also struggling with form for a long time.
Suryakumar Yadav is seen in the third picture in the tweet made by BCCI. Suryakumar Yadav will come out to bat at No. His ability to bat across the field makes him a dangerous batsman against bowlers. He is also running in excellent form at the moment.
Hardik Pandya will be the all-rounder of this Indian playing XI. Since his return to international cricket, he has been playing a different and better cricketer. Captaincy is another aspect which he has added to his game.
Rishabh Pant will enter this playing XI as a wicketkeeper-batsman at number 5. He was rested from the series against Zimbabwe. Pant has also been performing brilliantly for some time now.
Veteran player Dinesh Karthik is also a part of these pictures shared by BCCI. Karthik showed a great game in IPL 2022, after which there was a demand for his return to Team India.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the Indian seam attack in the Asia Cup. He along with Bumrah have been the two leading white-ball bowlers for India over the years. It is very difficult for any batsman to face Bhuvneshwar’s balls in the initial overs.
Yuzvendra Chahal Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal will be India’s leading spinner in the Chahal lineup. He is currently on break for the game and will return to the playing XI for the big game. He was part of the last Asia Cup team India won in 2018.
India have suffered a major setback in the Asia Cup with Jasprit Bumrah’s exit, but Avesh Khan will be included in the playing XI in his absence. The BCCI has also given a glimpse of this in the pictures.
Young left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh is the second seam option in the playing XI. He has proved his mettle in the death overs first against England and then against West Indies. His selection in the Asia Cup squad is a big sign of that trust of the selectors.
