Asia Cup India Squad
For perhaps the first time since being appointed ODI captain in December 2021, India skipper Rohit Sharma has a first-choice squad at his disposal for the Asia Cup beginning on August 30. The squad for the tournament was announced on Monday (August 21) after a selection meeting that was attended by Rohit and head coach Rahul Dravid. KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer have returned from surgeries while pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna will take another decisive step in their comebacks from serious back injuries by featuring in the 50-over format. The only unexpected inclusion in India's 17-member squad for the continental event is 20-year-old batter Tilak Varma, who is yet to play for India in ODIs, while another decision that triggered mixed reactions was Kuldeep Yadav over Yuzvendra Chahal.
