Eyes will be on DK(Dinesh Karthik) too as he returned to the national team after a long time.And will be desperate to strengthen his spot at this highly competitive batting line up.
In bowling department key focus will be on newcomers like Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh.The Asia Cup will show how they can handle the pressures and earn trust of the skippers
All together the line up looks extremely potential with lots of talents and experience.Asia cup is almost a virtual Semifinal before the T20 World Cup 2022 and India will definitely like to make the most use of it.
