Asia Cup 2022 India Squad : The date of Asia Cup 2022 is getting closer. Its schedule has arrived and the first match will be played on August 27. After the schedule of Asia Cup 2022 was revealed, Pakistan has first announced its team. Now the wait is that when Team India will be announced. Along with this, cricket fans are also waiting for whether the players who are resting are also going to get a place in the team or not. The biggest question is about former captain Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli is currently on rest and he has not been selected in the team even in the series against Zimbabwe. Along with this, cricket fans also want to know about Jasprit Bumrah.
Team India will be announced for Asia Cup by evening on August 8
Meanwhile, there are reports that Team India for the Asia Cup 2022 will be announced on August 8 i.e. on Monday. The Asia Cricket Council has declared this as the last date to announce the teams for the Asia Cup. The special thing is that the T20 series being played between India and West Indies will also end by then. Three matches of the series have been completed and the remaining two matches will be played on 6th and 7th August, followed by a BCCI selectors meeting on 8th August and the team will be announced. This time the Asia Cup will be played in the UAE, although the event was to be held in Sri Lanka, but the conditions are not right there, so it was transferred to the UAE. All the matches of the Asia Cup will be played in two stadiums, Dubai and Sharjah.
Two matches of the T20 series against West Indies are yet to come
In the Asia Cup 2022, Rohit Sharma will be seen captaining Team India, but the question is about former captain Virat Kohli. Will Kohli be seen making a comeback from this series? Along with this, Jasprit Bumrah will also be seen making a comeback after the rest. Meanwhile, it will also be interesting to see what the selectors decide regarding Shreyas Iyer, he is not in form and is struggling to score runs consistently. He has two more matches against West Indies to prove himself. Also, there are reports that Arshdeep Singh will also be included in Team India for the Asia Cup.
India’s first match in Asia Cup 2022 against Pakistan on 28 August
There is also a lot of discussion about KL Rahul, another player of Team India. KL Rahul has not played a single match for Team India since IPL 2021. He was named captain for the series against South Africa after the IPL, but was ruled out due to injury. Since then, he is constantly battling with some problem. In between, he also suffered from corona, although now he is fine. If he keeps well and fitness is also OK, then he is also likely to return to Team India once again. In the Asia Cup, India has to face the rest of the strong teams in Asia including Pakistan, so the Indian team would like to go to the UAE with the best players, so that the title can be captured once again.
