Asia Cup 2023 Team India Squad Announcement Today
Rohit Sharma, the captain, and chief selector Ajit Agarkar hold a press conference in Delhi at 1:00 AM on Monday to officially reveal India’s 17-person travel squad for the 2023 Asia Cup.
India needs to do well in the regional tournament, which will be contested in a 50-over format this year, in order to have a shot at winning the ODI World Cup, which will be held at home later this year. KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, who have each been recuperating from a back and thigh ailment, raise serious concerns about their physical condition.
In the three-match T20I series against Ireland, Jasprit Bumrah’s health as a speed spearhead has come as a welcome surprise, and he is likely to be a part of the team’s future plans.
Squad: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya (vc), Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Sanju Samson (backup)
