Asia Cup 2022: Virat Kohli and KL Rahul set to play, they will be out of playing XI against Pakistan



Asia Cup is starting from 27th August
6 teams including India are divided into 2 groups
Team India has a good record in the tournament

New Delhi. Rohit Sharma will be desperate to start with a win in the Asia Cup. But it will not be easy for them to choose playing-11 for the match against Pakistan (IND vs PAK) on Sunday. KL Rahul is going to play a T20 match for the first time after IPL 2022. On the other hand, Virat Kohli was rested in the last series. In such a situation, a change in the team’s playing-11 is certain. In such a situation, which 11 players get a chance, it will be a matter to be seen. The team will not have forgotten the defeat against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup last year.

Team India played the last T20 International match against West Indies in America on 7 August. The 5 players who played in that match are not even in the 15-member team selected for the Asia Cup. It includes Ishaan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav. That is, at least 5 changes are fixed. KL Rahul can open with captain Rohit Sharma.

Kohli at No.3
Virat Kohli has been performing well at number-3 for a long time. In such a situation, he can once again get a chance at this number in the big match against Pakistan. Suryakumar Yadav is set to play at number four. After this Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik can get a place in the team. That is, it is difficult for Deepak Hooda to play. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja have almost confirmed their place as all-rounders.

No doubt about Chahal
Leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal bowled brilliantly in IPL 2022. He was successful in winning the Purple Cap by taking the most wickets. He has been consistently performing well in T20 Internationals. He is also the highest wicket-taker for India in T20 Internationals. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh can get a chance as fast bowlers. Bhuvneshwar is giving the team a wicket with the new ball. On the other hand, young left-arm bowler Arshdeep Singh has impressed everyone with his performance. He is bowling effectively in the death overs as well.
