BCCI announced their squad for the upcoming Asia Cup 2022 on Monday. Virat Kohli and KL Rahul made comeback into the side while Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel missed out due to injury. There were some shocking decisions taken on Monday as veteran Pacer M Shami, opening batsman Ishan Kishan, middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer, wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson and spinner Kuldeep Yadav were not picked in the squad. In this article, we will take you through the top five players who missed the bus to UAE and the reason why they should have been selected.
Team India including former captain Virat Kohli, vice-captain Jasprit Bumrah, Cheteshwar Pujara, Mohammed Shami, Shubman Gill, Shardul Thakur, Ravindra Jadeja and other have left for the tour of United Kingdom. The tour will feature the fifth and final Test of the series from July 1 along with three T20 and ODIs each. In these collection of pictures, we take a look at Team India's departure pictures.
The current India pace attack is comprised of experienced and young bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Shami himself have been part of the Indian attack for many years. And with the emergence of T Natarajan, Mohammed Siraj and Deepak Chahar the pace attack only look more promising.
Shami said the success of the current group boils down to the joy they share in each other's success. Giving his own example, Shami said he was helped massively by Ishant when he made his debut and that taught him to share his wisdom with the youngsters coming into the side. Someone like a Mohammad Siraj became the leader of the attack in his debut series and injuries meant that net bowlers like Shardul Thakur, T Natarajan and Washington Sundar got unexpected opportunities which they grabbed with both hands.
India's frontline fast bowler Mohammed Shami emphasized the importance of pace in a country like Australia. Shami praised the current Indian pace attack - remarking that even their reserve pacers can bowl over 140 kph. India is scheduled to play three ODI's, three T20I's and four Tests against Australia from November 27.
