Tomorrow is the clash with Afghanistan in the last match
New Delhi. Team India has come under the target of giants after 2 consecutive defeats in the Asia Cup. Fans are also disappointed. In the Super-4 of the T20 Asia Cup 2022, the team was defeated by Sri Lanka by 6 wickets. Earlier, Pakistan had also defeated him by 5 wickets while chasing the target.

The fast bowlers could not take a single wicket.
Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh wrote on social media, Where is Umran Malik (speed of 150 km)? Why was Deepak Chahar (top quality swing bowler) not there? Tell me don’t these guys deserve the chance? Why doesn’t Dinesh Karthik get frequent opportunities?? gloomy. With this message, he has asked many questions to the team management. Apart from them, many others including Gautam Gambhir, Ravi Shastri have also raised questions on the selection of the team.
Karthik played 2 matches
Dinesh Karthik did well in IPL 2022. After this he got a place in Team India. He was given a chance in both the matches of the group round of the current Asia Cup. He was included in place of Pant against Pakistan. He remained unbeaten on one run. He did not get a chance to bat against Hong Kong. Pant landed in both the matches of Super-4. He could not contribute at crucial times with the bat. He was dismissed for 14 against Pakistan and 17 against Sri Lanka. Due to this the team could not score big. While Karthik kept waiting for his turn.
Chahar as standby
Deepak Chahar got injured before IPL 2022. Because of this he was out of the team for a long time. Recently, he made a comeback from the Zimbabwe series. In the very first match, he became the player of the match by taking 3 wickets. He was rested in the second match. He again took 2 wickets in the third and final match. He was included as a standby for the Asia Cup. However, on Tuesday itself, Avesh Khan was ruled out of the tournament due to ill health. Chahar has been included in his place.

22-year-old Jammu and Kashmir fast bowler Umran Malik impressed everyone with his speed in the IPL and also took more than 15 wickets. He consistently bowls at a speed of 150 kmph. After this he also got a place in the T20 team from India. He got a chance in two matches against Ireland and one against England. During this he took 2 wickets and the economy was above 12. Because of this he was dropped from the team. But after the defeat of the Asia Cup, questions are being raised on the team management along with the players before the T20 World Cup starting in October.
