Following a lackluster performance in the West Indies tour, Sanju Samson finds himself in a struggle to retain his position within the Indian cricket team. Throughout the ODI and T20I series, Samson could only muster a single half-century across five innings. The BCCI selection committee, led by Ajit Agarkar, is anticipated to announce the Indian squad for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023 later this week. There is a strong possibility that Sanju Samson might not make the cut in  the 2023 Asia Cup squad.

As per a report, the wicketkeeper-batsman’s spot is at risk due to the expected return of KL Rahul. Notably, the Asia Cup is scheduled to commence on August 30, with India launching their campaign against Pakistan on September 2.

The upcoming competition might witness the return of several players to the One Day International format, notably Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul, and Prasidh Krishna. Jasprit Bumrah is scheduled to make his comeback to international cricket in the Ireland T20Is commencing this Friday, while Prasidh Krishna, a member of the Indian squad, will also mark his return during the same series. In a parallel development, KL Rahul has begun his practice sessions at the NCA, training alongside Shreyas Iyer.

A source stated,

“Prasidh can generate pace and bounce and will give a new dimension to our pace attack. Before they pick the team for the Asia Cup, it will be nice if the selectors get to watch both Bumrah and Prasidh bowl in the opening T20I against Ireland on August 18.”

While there are reports of KL Rahul having achieved fitness, Iyer’s condition remains below full recovery. As a result, the announcement of India’s squad for the Asia Cup is pending.
