How should the team start fuming for the World Cup?
Let us tell you that before the ICC T20 World Cup, the Indian team will get a good opportunity to try their players in the Asia Cup. Whereas from now on, the discussions about which players will get a place in the team regarding these two tournaments have started gaining momentum.
In such a situation, former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer has selected his teams for the Asia Cup and ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Know everything about Wasim Jaffer's teams here…
For the Asia Cup, the selectors should include only those players in the team who are in the frame of T20.
Former veteran cricketer Wasim Jaffer said, "The selectors in the Asia Cup will not want to pick players who are not in the frame for the T20 World Cup. You need to support them without any change. The team will have a choice between Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar.
It remains to be seen whether he regains match fitness ahead of the tournament. You can choose Prithvi Shaw as a backup option. Rahul Tripathi can be a wild card entry in this team. Then Natarajan will also be one of the contenders."
Expressed confidence in Hardik and Jadeja as all-rounders
Wasim Jaffer has included both Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya players in the team while choosing his playing XI. On the other hand, he has also given place to Jaspreet Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the team.
While Yuzvendra Chahal has also been included in the team. KL Rahul will go to open the innings with Rohit in Wasim Jaffer's team.
These young players were not given a place in their team
Wasim Jaffer has not included middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer and opener batsman Ishan Kishan in his playing XI. Shreyas Iyer has performed brilliantly against the Windies, on the other hand, Ishan Kishan has also been seen making excellent openings during the last few matches.
