India’s selectors will pick the squad for the Asia Cup next week. The announcement is likely to be made after the conclusion of the ongoing five-match T20I series against the West Indies. With young turks like Deepak Hooda, Arshdeep Singh and Sanju Samson proving their mettle in recent matches, the task of finalizing the 15-man squad for the tournament will not be easy for the selectors.

Senior players Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul are returning to the squad and the selectors will face a lot of problems just to make a place in the squad.

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are almost certain to get places in the batting. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are likely to be included in the squad as all-rounders. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel are likely to share the bowling responsibilities.

But the selectors for the remaining three seats will be determined. Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Yadav are eligible for selection and with players like Axar Patel, Hooda, Arshdeep and R Ashwin showing good form in recent times, the selection will not be easy.

Deepak Chahar was India’s go-to powerplay bowler in T20 matches before a hamstring injury kept him out of action. In his absence, Bhuvneshwar Kumar cemented his place in the team.

Kuldeep Yadav also announced his return to form after finishing among the leading wicket takers in IPL 2022. However, an injury to his right hand forced him out of action before the home series against South Africa.

The squad for the Asia Cup will give a fair indication of the core of the squad for the T20 World Cup in Australia. Rohit and company will play around a dozen T20I matches before the blockbuster clash against Pakistan at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. This includes the home series against South Africa and Australia.

In these 12 matches, captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid want to cover all the bases ahead of the marquee ICC tournament. The team management will be keeping a close eye on Virat Kohli’s form and will assess whether they can retain in-form youngsters like Deepak Hooda.
