Asia Cup 2023: Jasprit Bumrah set to play against Pakistan

New Delhi:

In the ongoing Asia Cup 2023, the Super-4 round match between India and Pakistan to be played on Sunday has now become clear that even if the match is washed out due to rain or the match is not completed, it will be played the next day (11 September). Overall, now that the focus of the fans has shifted to another mega match, it has become difficult for the team management to choose the final XI. KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah will be available for selection for this match. Bumrah, who missed the second innings against Pakistan due to rain and then the birth of a child, has not bowled a single ball in the Asia Cup 2023. But now along with Bumrah, KL Rahul is also returning. Bumrah is going to be a part of the XI, but the management is stuck about KL Rahul. The confusion is who should be left out for KL?

In
previous matches, where Shami was very economical despite taking one wicket, Mohammed Siraj took 3 wickets against Nepal. At the same time, Shardul Thakur, who was included as an all-rounder, could not contribute with the bat, but also appeared ineffective in bowling. In such a situation, the management may give preference to the experienced Shami over Shardul against Pakistan.

Ishaan or KL Rahul?
The biggest confusion in front of the management is about KL Rahul. Ishan Kishan scored 87 runs against Pakistan and also won number five by playing in difficult times. In such a situation, KL Rahul's playing in Eleven has taken the form of a mysterious question. Ishaan's form has been fantastic. In the last four ODIs, he has scored 52, 55, 77 and 82 runs. In such a situation, it has become an impossible task to make them sit outside. In such a situation, KL can sit outside and if he sits outside, then he should not be sitting outside for a long time. The Indian XI against Pakistan can be as follows:


1. Rohit Sharma (Captain) 2. Shubman Gill 3. Virat Kohli 4. Shreyas Iyer 5. Ishan Kishan 6. Hardik Pandya 7. Ravindra Jadeja 8. Mohammed Shami/Akshar Patel 9. Kuldeep Yadav 10. Jasprit Bumrah 11. Mohammed Siraj
