team india probable 15 players team for asia cup 2022 vs pakistan rohit sharma | Asia Cup: These 15 players will get a place in the Asia Cup team! Soon selectors are going to announce

Asia Cup: India’s T20 series against West Indies is going to end on Sunday. Thereafter, the selection committee is expected to announce the squad for the Asia Cup 2022. Finalizing the squad for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in October will not be easy. However, the Asia Cup is followed by a three-match home T20 series against Australia and South Africa respectively in September. It is likely that the team will be the one who will go for the T20 World Cup.

These players will get a place

Captain Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are almost firm in the batting department. With Virat Kohli and KL Rahul back in the squad for the Asia Cup, it should round out the batting order. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are undoubtedly all-rounders. Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are involved in the bowling department. If Harshal Patel is fit after recovering from injury, then he is sure to be confirmed too.

Hooda and Ishaan Kishan may get a place

With the above 13 players fixed, the focus shifts to who can be the players to complete a team of 15. Deepak Hooda and Ishan Kishan have an edge over Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer in terms of challengers or potential backup options in the batting department. In terms of fast bowling options, fast bowler Arshdeep Singh has created a huge opportunity for himself with impressive performances in the opportunities he has got, who is ahead of another youngster in Avesh Khan. With his ability to bowl yorkers in the death overs and show finesse against the batsmen, Arshdeep is definitely in the running.

Deepak Chahar may return

But Deepak Chahar has returned to the ODI squad for the series against Zimbabwe, who can compete with Arshdeep as a fast bowling back-up slot. Chahar was India’s best bowling option in the powerplays before being sidelined due to injuries. Bhuvneshwar is doing well now, Chahar may get a slight edge over Arshdeep due to his batting abilities, especially the will to hit sixes.

Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi and Kuldeep Yadav are contenders in spin. But with Akshar, Jadeja and Kuldeep having similar options as well as Bishnoi, the selection of any one of the three would indicate what the Indian selectors are thinking of as back-up options.

Probable Playing 11 for Asia Cup:

Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar.
