With an eye on the upcoming ODI World Cup, India’s performance in the Asia Cup holds immense significance. This year, the tournament will adopt the 50-over format. The outcome of this continental championship will greatly influence India’s prospects in the World Cup, which is set to take place later this year on home turf. A major focus rests on the fitness of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, both of whom are recuperating from thigh and back injuries respectively.
In a pleasantly surprising turn of events, pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah’s fitness has impressed during the three-match T20I series against Ireland. This strong display makes him a likely inclusion in the Asia Cup squad.
Squad: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, and Sanju Samson (back up).
