Asia Cup 2023 is going to start on 30 August. For which the 17-member team of Team India has been announced on Monday (August 21). In which the luck of some youths has also shone. Who will be seen playing Asia Cup for the first time? While some players have been ignored.
Especially injustice has been done to those 3 Indian players who were dropped from Asia Cup 2023 despite their brilliant performance. These three players were considered to be the big contenders of the tournament this year. Let us know about these 3 big players in this report.
1. Yashasvi Jaiswal:
Team India’s young left-handed batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal got a chance to debut against the West Indies in August this year. He played a blistering inning of 171 runs in his first test. Whereas in the second match of the T20 series, he scored 84 runs.
This young player attracted the selectors a lot with his performance. After Jaiswal’s excellent form, it was speculated that he might get a chance in the Asia Cup. But this did not happen and this young player was shown the way out of the Asia Cup 2023 squad.
2. Sanju Samson:
The second name in this list is the name of Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson. Who has been selected as the backup player in Asia Cup 2023. If any player in Ishaan Kishan and KL Rahul is out for some reason, then Sanju can be selected for keeping.
But its chances are slim to none. If you look at Sanju Samson’s ODI statistics, he has played 13 ODI matches for Team India. In whose 12 innings he has scored 390 runs at an impressive average of 55.71. These figures are calling for Sanju to play in the Asia Cup 2023.
3. Mukesh Kumar:
Finally the player we are going to talk about. He is Bihar’s fast bowler Mukesh Kumar. Who has made a place in Team India on the basis of first-class and excellent performance in IPL. He remains in discussions for his excellent bowling. He has a good pace. Due to this, he creates trouble for the batsmen.
Mukesh Kumar has the power to swing the ball. He bowls very economically in death overs. He has shown his bowling on the West Indies tour. If he was selected in the Asia Cup 2023, he could prove fatal on Indian pitches. But, he was also ignored from this tournament.
