India Playing XI vs Pakistan – Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 Live: Picking the XI in Round 2 of the India vs Pakistan clash is turning out to be a huge headache for Team India. Ravindra Jadeja ruled out of Asia Cup 2022. New recruit Akshar Patel joined the squad in Dubai apparently preferring to like the replacement. But his inclusion in the XI means that Rishabh Pant will once again sit out of the XI. Deepak Hooda is another option that the team management can look at: Follow IND vs PAK live updates on InsideSport.IN.

Ravindra Jadeja scored a crucial 35 against Pakistan and was frugal in both matches in the Asia Cup. His left-arm option was effective for Team India as well. But in his absence, India will have to think about three adjustments.

Option 1: Akshar Patel for Ravindra Jadeja

  • This seems like the logical choice.
  • Akshar Jadeja is the best replacement for left arm spinner and arm batsman.
  • He is also a left-armer, who can be a good option against Pakistan’s left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz.

Option 2: Rishabh Pant for Jadeja

  • Rishabh Pant can be a good option for Ravindra Jadeja.
  • But pants pose a problem for Jadeja as India go down to 5 bowlers.
  • India will not have a 6th bowling option against Pakistan.
  • Additionally, India will be short of a spinner.
  • As the Dubai pitch slows down, spinners will be needed.

Option 3: Deepak Hooda for Jadeja

  • With Jadeja out, India need an all-rounder.
  • The right choice for the kind of form Deepak Hooda is in.
  • But with Hooda, India will miss a left-hander.
  • If Rishabh Pant is also not promoted, India will have no left-arm options in the top order against Nawaz.

Option 4: Akshar for Jadeja, Pant for Karthik

  • Having Akshar Patel for Ravindra Jadeja, India may also go for left-arm option Rishabh Pant.
  • However, Dinesh Karthik has been given a special role in Mrityu.
  • Although he has played only 1 ball in the first two matches, there may be situations where India will need such a player.
  • So, Karthik can stay while Rishabh Pant has to warm the bench again.

Option 5: Akshar for Jadeja, Ashwin for Avesh

  • While Akshar Patel is the right choice to replace Jadeja, India may need an extra spinner.
  • Dubai’s pitch is slowing down and India need an extra spinner.
  • Avesh Khan was poor against Hong Kong, conceding 53 runs in his 4 overs.
  • So India can take an experienced Ravichandran Ashwin in place of Avesh.

Focus on KL Rahul: However, more than anything, the focus will once again be on vice-captain KL Rahul. After the golden duck against Pakistan, Rahul scored 36 off 39 balls against Hong Kong. That won’t cut it. A clear lack of purpose was evident and the team management must have a word with him.

Although he plays an important role in India’s plans, he needs to get his rhythm back as soon as possible. A 3-month layoff with injuries didn’t help his cause either. With three matches in the Super 4 phase, he will have plenty of time to go.

They also had problems with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. While Rohit hasn’t been able to convert his starts into big innings, Kohli is struggling with form. His 50 against Hong Kong came off 40 balls, not the greatest strike rate. But it is a confidence booster for Kohli.

In the bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the attack with Arashdeep. But Hardik Pandya will be the second in command. He was exceptional against Pakistan and India will hope he continues that form.
