Asia Cup 2022: Team India is going to get a big relief before the Asia Cup starting at the end of this month. Star opener KL Rahul is set to return to Team India for the Asia Cup. Apart from this, fast bowler Deepak Chahar has also become completely fit and his selection is also considered almost certain. The Asia Cup will be held in T20 format in Dubai and Sharjah from August 27 to September 11.

Rahul was expected to make a comeback in the team for the ODI series against Zimbabwe at his home. But due to Kovid-19 infection, he failed to fully recover from the recent sports hernia surgery.

It will be interesting to see whether the Chetan Shurma-led selection committee picks 15 players or picks a 17-member squad keeping in mind all possible options. A BCCI source said on the condition of anonymity, “Lokesh Rahul doesn’t need to prove anything. Whenever he plays T20 he always plays as a specialist opener and the same thing will continue. In future, Suryakumar and Rishabh will play as specialist middle-order batsmen.

There is no threat to Virat Kohli’s place

Virat Kohli’s form is the biggest concern for the Indian team, but the number three position of this star batsman does not see any threat at the moment. Dinesh Karthik has almost confirmed his place in the middle order while Deepak Hooda will be the first backup option in future.

In the bowling unit, Chahar will make a comeback in the one-day international series against Zimbabwe and is likely to be picked in the squad for the Asia Cup. The source said, “Deepak was one of India’s consistent bowlers in T20Is before getting injured. He deserves a fair chance and at the same time we need an equal replacement for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Also, if he is making a comeback, he will have to play a lot of matches to get the momentum.
