2023 Asia Cup: India Reveals its Dominant 17-Man Squad Lineup
The India Squad for the Asia Cup 2023 has been unveiled, consisting of 17 members. The announcement was made by captain Rohit Sharma and chief selector Ajit Agarkar during a press conference in Delhi. The team’s performance in this year’s 50-over format continental tournament will significantly impact their prospects in the upcoming ODI World Cup. The return of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, both recovering from injuries, raises questions about their readiness. However, the positive fitness status of pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, demonstrated in the T20I series against Ireland, is expected to secure his place in the Asia Cup squad.
The selected squad includes 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 as the reserve player. Sanju Samson’s inclusion as a backup adds depth to the team. As the nation anticipates the Asia Cup’s outcome, India’s performance will be closely watched, especially with the impending ODI World Cup on home soil.
