Virat Kohli and KL Rahul set for comeback: Both Kohli and KL Rahul will return to the team. Virat Kohli has already informed the selectors about his availability. Kohli has taken a break from West Indies and Zimbabwe tour.

While Virat Kohli’s form is the biggest concern for the Indian team, there is no imminent threat to his No.3 slot. He is set to continue in the same slot. There was no concrete discussion about Kohli’s future in the shortest format.

While not great at the Asia Cup, his years of experience and match-winning ability will be hard to ignore for Australia’s marquee event. Deepak Hooda will be the backup No.3 for India.

Discussion on KL Rahul: While KL Rahul has an assured place at the top, his batting style and long injury layoff will be the biggest challenge. Actually, Rahul has to go to UAE without any match practice.

He recently went under the knife in Germany with a sports hernia and the injury forced him to withdraw from the home series in South Africa. Rahul also spent time on the treatment table during the England and West Indies tours, which limited his chances in the team.

Although he has an assured place in the team, recently there have been calls for him to be dropped as vice-captain of the Indian T20 team and hand over the reins to Hardik Pandya instead. Rahul tested positive for Covid-19 during his time at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) which further hampered his progress.

Asia Cup India Squad Selection Live: Who is in contention?

  • The Asia Cup squad could be the final T20 World Cup squad barring any late injuries.
  • However, there are players who will compete for a few spots in the team.
  • Arshdeep Singh is all set to be included in the full Shakti squad. Not only will his left-arm pace be effective, but his supreme control in the death overs will be another factor.
  • But with only 15 players in the squad and two reserves, the selectors will have a big headache.
  • Arshdeep Singh will be the third pacer to be named after Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar.
  • But the real competition is in the spinners slot.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is the number one spinner. However, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Akshar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav will have to compete for the third slot.
  • Being an all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja will be in the XI.
  • Among the batters, Deepak Hooda seems to have sealed the backup No. 3 slot ahead of Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson.
  • But with Suryakumar Yadav and Hooda’s versatile talents, Ishaan Kishan finds himself in a tight spot.
  • Ishan can be the backup opening option.
