2023 Asia Cup

The Indian squad for the highly anticipated 2023 Asia Cup is set to be revealed by the men’s selection committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday, August 20th. Unlike Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal, which have already disclosed their team rosters, both Team India and Sri Lanka have kept their squads under wraps for the tournament.

The timeline for finalizing the team for the 2023 Asia Cup remains unknown to the selection committee. As Dravid and his team have returned to India, it is expected that the selection procedure will unfold in the upcoming days. According to sources, there is speculation that the selection might occur after the initial Twenty20I match in Ireland. This match holds significance as Jasprit Bumrah is poised to make his comeback to the field after an absence of nearly 11 months, as reported by Cricbuzz.

Apart from Bumrah, the selectors are keen on evaluating the fitness levels of batsmen KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. Presently, both players are in the process of recovering from injuries while stationed at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. Recently, both Rahul and Iyer engaged in a practice match earlier in the week.

Reports from the Times of India suggest that there are discussions surrounding the potential exclusion of wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson from India’s 15-player ODI squad for the Asia Cup 2023. Samson’s recent performances have been challenging, with scores of 12, 7, and 13 in three matches, although he did achieve totals of 9 and 51 in One Day Internationals.

Scheduled to kick off on August 30 in Multan, the 2023 Asia Cup is primed to begin, featuring India’s inaugural clash against Pakistan on September 2nd.
