The one who scored a century in the Asia Cup did not get a place in the team
BCCI did not select for Asian Games
New Delhi. The BCCI has announced the squad of Team India for the Asian Games on Friday. The surprising thing is that veteran batsman Shikhar Dhawan has not been included in this list. At the same time, the captaincy of this team has been given to Ruturaj Gaikwad. The player who scored a century in the very first match of the Emerging Asia Cup has also not been included in the squad.
Actually, we are talking about Yash Dhull, the captain of Team India in the Emerging Asia Cup. Yash scored an excellent century against UAE on Friday. After this it seemed that he has presented a strong claim for the Asian Games. But on the same day, after 6 hours, BCCI announced the score for the Asian Games. In which Yash’s name was not there. It was a bit shocking.
Runs hit at a strike rate of 128
Captain Yash Dhull scored 108 runs in 84 balls against UAE. Yash hit 20 fours and 1 six in his innings. In this way, he scored 86 runs only from the boundary. Yash Dhull has played 4 matches in IPL. But his performance there was nothing special. He has scored only 16 runs in 3 innings for Delhi so far. His highest score has been 13.
