New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced team India for the Asia Cup starting this month. Former India captain Virat Kohli and opener KL Rahul have returned to the Indian team after a long time. Rahul has been appointed as the vice-captain of the team. In such a situation, he is considered to play almost all the matches. At the same time, the team management still has full faith in Kohli. He can also get a chance in almost every match of the Asia Cup. Let us know that India's first match in the Asia Cup is against Pakistan on August 28.
If both the batsmen get a chance against Pakistan, then it will be an international match for Rahul after 94 days and Kohli after 41 days. In such a situation, it is genuine to question whether it would be appropriate to field these players in this match without playing any practice match or any other series only on the basis of big names. The big thing in this is that Kohli has not been able to score any international half-century for the last five months and no century for two and a half years. He seems to be constantly struggling to score runs. At the same time, Rahul recently underwent surgery on his groin in Germany. He was then recuperating at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. On coming here, he was hit by Corona. However, he is fine now. But fielding them directly in the big match against Pakistan can prove to be a big risk.
Team India Squad for Asia Cup:-
Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan.
