Team India can be termed as a hot favorite to win the upcoming 2022 Asia Cup, and apart from their quest to win the tournament, the members of the squad will also look to use the opportunity at hand to boost their possibilities for the T20 World Cup 2022. In the last year or so, the Indian team has brought out some change in their batting approach in the T20Is as they have adopted the ultra-aggressive template.
Several deserving candidates are performing well in the chances they have got hence, the established players need to be on the their toes to get selected for the 2022 T20 World Cup squad. Let’s have a look at 3 Indian players who can miss the T20 World Cup 2022 if they fail to do well in the 2022 Asia Cup.
#1 Dinesh Karthik
The comeback of Dinesh Karthik as the team’s designated finisher has been a positive note for the team. However, barring a few games, he hasn’t been able to perform the role as per the as effective in the Indian team would’ve wanted. Dinesh has played 13 innings since his comeback, and with just 192 runs under his belt, he hasn’t been able to fix his spot in the Indian squad for 2022 T20 WC.
The Aussie pitches will force every team to play four pacers – something Dinesh Karthik can feed on. Regardless, Karthik hasn’t been a safe keeper so far, and if he fails to fire with the bat in the 2022 Asia Cup, he will be expected to miss the ticket to Australia.
