There is still time for the Asia Cup 2023 to start but preparations have already started. At the same time, some big players of the Indian team will not be seen in it.
Regarding the Asia Cup 2023, the host country Pakistan (Pakistan) is still unable to come out of the dilemma regarding the hybrid model. While on the other hand its event will start in the end of August. At the same time, there are some big players in the Indian team who have more chances of getting out of this tournament. Among them are Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul.
Actually, only these three players are struggling with injury. Due to which it is difficult to say how long these three players will be fit.
First of all, let’s talk about Team India’s best bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who is out of the team since last year 2022 due to a back injury. This was the reason why he was also out of the T20 World Cup, IPL 2023 season played in Australia last year. However, in April this year, he went to New Zealand and got his back surgery done, after which he has been in rehab. But despite this, his chances of being fully fit for the Asia Cup are slim. It is also being said that he may be fit before the ODI World Cup to be played later this year, but the chances for the Asia Cup are slim.
The other player is youngster Shreyas Iyer, who recently underwent back surgery. Let me tell you that Iyer was also troubled by repeated back injuries. Due to which he had to be out of IPL 2023. He had to leave midway through the last Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia played in Ahmedabad in March. Also, his chances of getting fit before the Asia Cup are looking slim. As of now, Iyer has been advised bed rest and his rehabilitation is on.
Whereas middle order batsman KL Rahul is currently in London. Where he has been seen many times walking with the help of crutches. Actually, Rahul was injured during IPL 2023. After which he was out of the league. After this he was also out of the World Test Championship, and he got his surgery done in London. Due to which there is doubt on his fitness before the Asia Cup.
Team India’s best wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is also included in this list. Late last year, he was completely out of the cricket field after sustaining injuries due to a serious car accident. After which he is slowly recovering. Currently, he is currently in rehab at the National Cricket Academy. where they fit in. However, it is not yet decided when he will be fully fit to enter the cricket field.
