India Squad Asia Cup 2023 Live Updates: On Monday, India announced their 17-member traveling team for the 2023 Asia Cup, followed by a press conference in Delhi with captain Rohit Sharma and head selector Ajit Agarkar.
With the ODI World Cup on the horizon, India’s success in the regional competition – which will be contested in a 50-over format this year – will be critical to their hopes in the flagship event later this year in their home country. Major concerns have been raised over the fitness of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, who have both been recovering from thigh and back injuries, respectively. Jasprit Bumrah’s fitness has come as a pleasant surprise in the three-match T20I series against Ireland, and he is expected to be included in the Asia Cup team.
Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Yadav.

Team India 2023 Squad Announcement Live: Who Will Bat at No. 4?
That age-old question! “We have guys who can bat at No.4″, Rohit said with a smile. It’s not just one position… There have been obstacles, guys who have been placed under strain, and we have had to test others due to injury. We tried Axar at No.4 since he is a left-hander, and he batted easily.”
In other words, they haven’t made up their minds yet. What a pleasant surprise!
