Asian Games event is all set to commence on September 19, where athletes from different part of Asia takes part with a common goal to be Asian Champion in their respective sports. In Asian Games history, it is happening for the first time that India is taking part in Cricket events in this multi-sport tournament.
Recently, BCCI announced the 15-member squad for the Asian Games. However, there are some players who could’ve been backed by the management for the forthcoming ODI World Cup which will be hosted by India. Let’s have a look at the players who could’ve been backed:
The left-arm medium pacer has had an extraordinary career so far in the shorter format. In the T20 World Cup 2022 he took 10 wickets in 6 appearances ending the event with being the most wicket-taker for India in the event. Although, he has only played 3 ODI matches till now, but if given more chances he could be a lethal bowler in the ODI format as well, furthermore, he could be the left-arm bowler that the team India is looking for a long time.
Although he is yet to make his ODI debut for India, but with the kind of form he is in right now he should have been given a chance. He is the 4 youngest player to smash a ton in the Indian Premier League and during the first Test match between India and West Indies he broke multiple records in his debut test match. He scored 171 runs and became the 5th youngest player to register 150+ score on Test debut. Looking at his fierce batting style he should have made to the 15 members ODI World Cup squad.
Bishnoi could have been backed as well, as he could be a great fit for India to get those crucial middle-over breakthroughs that help them in shifting the momentum. Bishnoi have not played many ODI matches which means most of the players are unaware about his variety of deliveries which could help India in taking wickets. Although in T20 he has taken 16 scalps in 10 appearances.
