Asia Cup 2022: The Indian team for the Asia Cup 2022 has been announced. There will be no fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah in this team. Indian fast bowlers will not be a part of this tournament due to injury. Former cricketers and experts are constantly giving their opinion when Jasprit Bumrah is not part of the Indian team. Now former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan has given a big statement.
‘If Bumrah and Harshal Patel had been there, the team would have been stronger’
Actually, former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan said that the Indian team is good for the Asia Cup, but if Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel had been there, the team would have been stronger. He further said that it is good to see that Virat Kohli is back in the Indian team. Also, the former Indian all-rounder expressed the hope that Virat Kohli will definitely return to his form during the Asia Cup. It is worth noting that the Indian team for the Asia Cup 2022 has been announced, but veteran fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah will not be a part of this Indian team due to injury.
This is a good team just need Bumrah and Harshal back to full fitness going forward. Good to see Kohli is back. Expecting him to be back to his full form. #AsiaCup2022

‘At present there are more fast bowlers than spinners, but then…’
At the same time, former Indian cricketer Akash Chopra has also given his opinion on the Indian team for the Asia Cup by tweeting. He said in his tweet that there are only 3 fast bowlers in the Indian team … at present there are more fast bowlers than spinners, but still the selection of only 3 fast bowlers … my only concern is this.
Only three pacers in the squad…it’s DXB where there’s more for the pacers than spinners at this time of the year. That’s my only concern. #AsiaCup #India

Bumrah’s return possible in the series against Australia
However, it was believed that Jasprit Bumrah’s injury would be cured till the Asia Cup. Jasprit Bumrah’s selection in Team India for the Asia Cup was believed to be fixed. Now it is possible that Jasprit Bumrah can return to Team India only through the T20 series against Australia next month. Jasprit Bumrah’s recovery is also important because the T20 World Cup is to be organized in Australia later this year.
