The Indian squad for the Asia Cup has been announced. While KL Rahul has returned to the team as the vice-captain, Virat Kohli has also made a place in the team.
At the same time, India has suffered a setback where Jasprit Bumrah is not part of the squad due to injury. Seeing the Indian T20I team in the Asia Cup, these three decisions of the selectors are incomprehensible.
Sanju Samson was once again ignored
One thing that gets questioned every now and then is to ignore Sanju Samson. Samson has not been given consecutive chances in the team since 2015. In this way, how will this star player be able to give his hundred percent for the team? Sanju Samson is a dependable player and he could have been included in the squad. This decision of the selectors is a bit incomprehensible.
Only one experienced full-time fast bowler in the team, Mohammed Shami could have been given the chance instead of Avesh Khan
India's Pace's first choice Jasprit Bumrah is not part of the team due to injury. At the same time, Harshal Patel is also out due to a rib injury.
In such a situation, the team needed that along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, another experienced fast bowler should be given a place in the squad. Arshdeep has proved himself in recent times but instead of Avesh Khan, the name of Mohammed Shami could have been considered.
Highest run-scorer for India in T20I this year as standby
Shreyas Iyer is the highest run-scorer for India in T20Is in the year 2022. He has scored 449 runs in 14 matches at an above average of 44. Including 4 fifties.
During this, his strike rate has also been above 140. In such a situation, the decision for India to keep the most successful batsman in T20I on standby in 2022 is beyond comprehension.
