The challenging assignment for the Indian selection committee will come in a week when the selectors gather once more to choose the team for the Asia Cup. They picked the team for Zimbabwe on the 30th of June. The announcement of the Asia Cup team must be made before August 8th.

With the exception of injury-related unforeseen circumstances, it is possible to say with some degree of certainty that the side selected for the Asia Cup will be nearly the same as the one that will fly to Australia for the Twenty20 World Cup in October-November.

The six T20I matches against Australia and South Africa in September and October will also feature the same group of players. Prior to the World Cup, the selectors seek to provide the team management with a suitable number of games to work with.

KL Rahul Is Expected To Return Through Asia Cup 2022

It goes without saying that Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and KL Rahul will all be available for the Asia Cup. Due to family and medical obligations, the three are presently absent from the T20I team playing in the West Indies.

The contenders for the Twenty20 World Cup currently have exactly four more games left against the West Indies until the selectors decide their team for the Asia Cup on August 8. The five-match series, which concludes on August 7 in Florida, US, has India up 1-0.

The likes of Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Arshdeep Singh and others players on the fringe will be looking to make it count against the West Indies.

As far as the Zimbabwe series is concerned, Shikhar is going to lead again while no vice-captain has been announced.

India’s ODI Squad For Zimbabwe Series:

Shikhar Dhawan (Capt), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan (wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj, Deepak Chahar.
