As the impending ODI World Cup approaches, all the participating teams in the Asia Cup 2023 are set to employ this tournament as a valuable rehearsal. The India’s squad for the Asia Cup has been unveiled, setting the stage for intense action. Kicking off their campaign, India is scheduled to face their longstanding rivals, Pakistan, on September 2nd. Subsequently, they will lock horns with Nepal on September 4th. There have already been intense discussions going on among the cricket fanatics about the 17-man squad for the Asia Cup. Well, it’s quite obvious, considering most of those will definitely be part of the World Cup Squad. India didn’t have the privilege to play their strongest XI in the recent past due to injuries to players like Shreyas Iyer, Jasprit Bumrah, and KL Rahul. Fortunately, they are all fit to participate in the Asia Cup 2023.

Indian speedster Jasprit Burmah was away from the game for more than 10 months. With his absence, it felt as if fast bowling depth was being curtailed by a big margin. Well, fortunately, he is back at the right time, just before the start of the big event. Recently Bumrah made a thunderous return to international cricket with 2 wickets in 1st over against Ireland. In total of 72 matches, Jasprit Bumrah has taken 121 ODI Wickets. No one can doubt Bumrah’s abilities and skillsets. A lot will be riding on Bumrah’s shoulders in this Asia Cup 2023.

Suryakumar Yadav

Things are quite chaotic in the middle order for India and to some degree funny and frustrating. Indians have plenty of options and still are unable to find the best middle order. Most things will be decided on who bats alongside Rohit.

Suryakumar doesn’t need any introduction. He is bold, and fearless, though he can anchor the inning when needed. Surya has been amazingly successful in the shortest format. Anyways, he could be an X-factor for India and a finisher that India needs desperately. Surya is a proven finisher and this ability can aid him to gain the spot ahead of Shreyas and Tilak.

Tilak Varma

The strong batting performances in the IPL playing for Mumbai Indians have helped Tilak immensely to gain a spot in the Indian team. Tilak is very young in his career, but he could fill the void created by Suresh Raina. The bowling skills do bolster his CV for sure.

To be honest, it’s not going to be easy for Tilak to make the playing XI considering if Ishan Kishan plays alongside Rohit at the top, Gill might play at number 4 or 5. So, it’s going to be difficult, but he is surely one of the Indian players to watch out for in the Asia Cup 2023.

Kuldeep Yadav, a chinaman has seen it all. The highest highs and the lowest lows. The chinaman’s numbers dropped abruptly after the 2019 World Cup. A few months back, he was not even in consideration in the 15-men squad for the Asia Cup. But Kuldeep with extreme hard work, commendable perseverance and tremendous tenacity has almost cemented his place in the playing XI.

Kuldeep is back at his best. In the 11 ODIs this year, Kuldeep has picked 22 wickets at 17.18. With the absence of Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep’s place is almost certain for the Asia Cup 2023. The spin-friendly tracks in Sri Lanka will only make him an even more likable option.
