Asia Cup 2022: India’s Women’s Great Says No to KL Rahul, But This Player Should Start Against Pakistan. Anjum believes that the Indian team should field six bowlers against Pakistan to add depth to the bowling and batting departments.
Former Indian women’s team captain Anjum Chopra did not name star batter KL Rahul to Rohit Sharma’s playing XI for Sunday’s Asia Cup match against Pakistan. Anjum believes that the Indian team should field six bowlers against Pakistan to add depth to the bowling and batting departments. The 45-year-old also proposed that wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant open the batting with captain Rohit Sharma.
“I believe India should send six specialist bowlers. The bowling line-up can thus be adequately covered with seam, off-spin, and leg-spin. It also expands the batting order. It is up to the coach to decide who will bat first and who will bat in the middle “Anjum stated this in a video posted to her YouTube channel.
Anjum also mentioned the absence of pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel from the tournament due to injuries.
Asia Cup 2022: Anjum believes that the team management has numerous options for completing the task.
“India has numerous options. The selectors have a bench strength of at least 25 players, if not more. Anyone can benefit from them. It makes no difference if key players like Bumrah and Harshal are unavailable. India appears to be a very strong team in both batting and bowling. They are an excellent all-around team “she continued
Anjum Chopra’s probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Hooda/ Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar
