Rohit Sharma leads as we look at the updated forecast roster for Team India for 2022 Asia Cup.
The months of August to November will be the busier months for cricket fans. Not only will we witness numerous bilateral series for various international teams, but we will also see two major T20 tournaments, Asia Cup 2022 and T20 World Cup 2022. The first of the series, Asia Cup 2022, will be played from August 27 until Sept 11, 2022.
We are just a few days away from the official announcement of Team India’s official roster for 2022 Asia Cup. Team India is currently playing their final T20 series for the upcoming 2022 Asia Cup. Even though we already have the last two matches in the situation to look at Team India confirmed playing 11 for 2022 Asian Cup.
The entire roster discussion for Team India will revolve around a few spots that have yet to be finalized. Given the situation Team India is in, 12-13 players are almost selecting for themselves. But what are the other two places Team India will be discussing for the final roster selection?
We will look at all these answers in this article. So without any delay, let’s take a look at the updated 11 forecast for Team India for Asia Cup 2022. Apart from 15 confirmed names, India will also name 3 reserves as part of COVID-19 contingency and any injuries concerns. All right, let’s go there.
Confirmed 12 players:
Speaking of 12 player confirmed batters, we have Captain Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav. These four are without a doubt the main hitters in Asia Cup 2022. While Rohit and KL are our top picks, Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli will play a key role in the mid-range.
Speaking of wicketkeepers, it looks like Ishan Kishan is out of whack with India which already has 4 opening options. Ishan may be in the top 18 probabilities but when it comes to the top 2 wicketkeepers we have Southpaw Rishabh Pant and Finisher Dinesh Karthik. These two are sure of their place for the 2022 Asian Cup.
Apart from these six, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja will be Team India’s first two all-rounders. Undoubtedly, Hardik and Jadeja are the best available all-rounders in India. They are true all-rounders when it comes to all three dimensions. Whether batting, bowling or fielding, Hardik and Jadeja are A+ levels.
Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Arshdeep Singh are confirmed starters for 2022 Asia Cup. A fit Harshal Patel will also be a confirmed starter, but as he is still recovering from a rib injury, his availability would be announced in a few days. understood.
Discussion about 3 Spots
The main discussion will revolve around 3 spots. That’s a backup batter, backup pacer, and backup spinner. There are 6 names competing for these 3 spots. This includes Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi. We each have two players for the 3 places.
From the above, it appears that Deepak Hooda has an edge over Shreyas Iyer, given the recent performances in T20Is. So expect Deepak to play the backup batter/all-rounder role. Between Deepak Chahar and Harshal Patel, Harshal earns more. But if Harshal doesn’t recover, Deepak could get the selection kink.
Finally, the conversation between Ashwin and Bishnoi will be the most difficult. Before the West Indian T20 series, Bishnoi was the front runner for the backup spinner spot. But Ashwin was played for Bishnoi in the WI T20 series. Fortunately, Ash performed well. So it clearly says that Rohit seems to like Ashwin more.
