BCCI likely to name same squad for Team India’s Asia Cup and T20 World Cup campaigns

Written by Abhishek Patil

Team India is gearing up for the marquee events in the ongoing T20I series between the Rohit Sharma-led side and the West Indies. After the conclusion of the West Indies tour, India are also scheduled to face Zimbabwe in its away tour to the African nation. Since Rohit & Co. are set to feature in the Asia Cup before the ICC World T20 2022, the Board of Control for India (BCCI) named a second-string side for the One Day International (ODI) series against Zimbabwe.

The Indian think tank is also expected to furnish the final squad for the Asia Cup 2022 next week. August 8 is reportedly the deadline for all Asian teams to submit the final squad for the showpiece event. As per the latest developments, the BCCI will not only announce the Asia Cup squad next week but the shortlisted players will also be representing the Rohit-led side at the T20 World Cup.

The squad picked for the Asia Cup will almost be the same that is set to travel for the ICC World T20. Defending champions Australia will host the 2022 edition of the T20 World Cup this year in October-November. The report suggested that the same set of players will be named in the T20I series against Australia and South Africa in September and October.
