Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has shared a mysterious message on social media following his exclusion from the Asia Cup 2023 squad. The head of the selection committee, Ajit Agarkar, unveiled India’s roster for the upcoming tournament in a press conference held in New Delhi. The event featured Agarkar and captain Rohit Sharma.

The selection committee chose a 17-player squad, marked by the return of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. Both players had been sidelined due to injuries, preventing their participation in competitive cricket over the past several months. However, Yuzvendra Chahal’s absence was a significant talking point, as the Indian team opted to include Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, and Ravindra Jadeja as the preferred trio of spin bowlers.

The spinner utilized the microblogging platform X to post an enigmatic message accompanied by a pair of emoticons suggesting that the sun would ascend once more.

Seated next to Agarkar, Rohit Sharma elaborated on the reason for Chahal’s omission, which resulted in the team lacking a right-handed off-spinning choice,

“So fortunately we can take 17 here, it’ll be 15 at the World Cup. So when the time comes we’ll take that decision, but at the moment it, at least, gives the coach and captain an opportunity to have him with the squad.”

Following his exclusion from the Asia Cup squad, Chahal’s prospects of participating in the upcoming ODI World Cup in October-November appear considerably diminished. Nevertheless, Chief Selector Agarkar has indicated that Chahal, along with R Ashwin and Washington Sundar, might still have a chance to be considered for the ODI World Cup despite the setback.
