    Predict India's squad for the 2018 Asia Cup

    I am very excited for this tournament and it will be great fun to watch India play in UAE after decades. However, India might rest many of its players owing to a hectic Eng tour. Below will be India's team as per my guess:

    Openers:
    Rohit Sharma (capt)
    KL Rahul

    Middle Order:
    Ambati Rayudu
    Shreyas Iyer
    Mayank Agarwal
    Kedar Jadhav

    Wicket keepers:
    MS Dhoni
    Dinesh Karthik
    Rishabh Pant

    All rounders:
    Krunal Pandya

    Spinners:
    Axar Patel
    Yuzi Chahal
    Washington Sundar

    Seamers:
    Mohammed Siraj
    Shardul Thakur
    Deepak Chahar

    If Indians are confident they can win the Asia Cup with India A then who are we to laugh?

    It will be on similar terms to the team mentioned at OP. Dont get fooled by our test team....our ODI team is pretty unsettled and selectors will try as many options as possible.

    Now lets look out the players who misses:

    1) Kohli - Injured back and would not play before Aust series.
    2) Dhawan - He may play but I think Rahul will be given a longer run in ODIs as an opener.
    3) Bowlers - Shami dont play ODIs, Kumar will be ineffective in UAE and will be given longer rest, Bumrah after playing 3 tests dont want to risk it in Dubai heat.
    4) H.Pandya - He is playing continuous cricket and will be rested for sure.

    I imagine it would be rather difficult to recruit Aravinda.

    Not sure about the others.

    indian team is goung to focus on hard hitters in middle order
    likely pandya krunal, jadhav cheeky hitter, ishankissan , samson and anyone who showed big hitting capability will and should get a chance
    pant karthick and pandya hardick are already decent hitters

    India will never send a second string team in a tournament where it is scheduled to play Pakistan atleast twice, no matter what the chest thumpers think.



    In fact it would be in fear of the chest thumpers in India and their media that BCCI cannot even think about sending a second string side and practically "throw" the matches against Pak.

    Make it certain three matches as India vs Pakistan is basically guaranteed for the final.

    I'll take that bet. India certainly won't send a full strength side. What are you wagering?

    What if they send their second string team expecting to lose all of their matches vs Pakistan to give Pakistan hope and confidence, only for their first string team to take all that away in the WC and make it 7-0. Pretty cruel if that were the case

    So you think Kohli, Bumrah, Bhuvi, Shami and the frontline spinners all won't play? You probably know more about your team but I seriously doubtthat they are going to send a "B" team to the Asia cup.

    But unfortunately, our second string side is better than the main side. You will have to pray we don't send out A team players for your team's sake.

    Bhuvi will still be in rehab anyway. Bumrah and Kohli will likely be rested to manage workloads. It will be a good opportunity for Shreyas Iyer, Jadhav, Rayudu, DK to push for slots.

    Sending a B team will be disastrous for India. They barely beat Bangladesh to win the Nidahas Trophy, Pakistan would most probably overpower them. I donít think BCCI/CoA will risk getting a thrashing from Pakistan in even one of the matches.

    Coming to the playing 11, it would be

    Rohit *
    Shikhar
    Rahul
    Dhoni +
    Karthik / Pant (Kohli will replace in the super 4 against Pak and final )
    Raina
    Pandya
    Bhubaneshwar
    Yadav K
    Chahal
    Bumrah

    Its our full strength team . Kohli will rest for group stage against Pak and super 4 against all teams apart from Pak.

    Final Kohli will play even if it's against Bangladesh.

    Wish it was my team, I've posted what the BCCI will select and the management would play.

    That's why I've mentioned it "would" be and, not "should".

    right handed pandya is an asset in tests and one dayers. with bhuvi injured and aussie tour looming , the selectors will want to try out left pandya left .
    we will then have pandya left wright and centre !

    It is an irrelevant tournament in an irrelevant venue, and India is the only top-flight team in the competition. It will be surprising if India sends their full-strength team. At least Kohli should opt out.

    Ongoing Quadrangular A team Series performances will have a big say i think. Surely can see few of the players currently playing test matches in England getting rested especially Kohli and Bumrah. They are the backbone of the Indian Test team and both of them have just about recovered from injuries so will most probably rested keeping in mind the coming WI and Australia series. But at the same time it wouldn't be a wholesale new team given its Star Sports who's got the broadcast and its BCCI who's the host team even though its being held in UAE.
    Can at the least see Mayank and Siraj in the teams given their performances in India A setup.

    Indian ODI and T20 teams look very differently if the selectors did their jobs properly. For example, Pandey is not a T20 player and we still see him in that format.

    Letís see. I will be very surprised if India decides to rest its key players. Barring injuries, which are likely owing to the final two tests, I donít see this happening since Pakistan is involved. A heavy loss to Pakistan will lead to a thrashing of the BCCI, considering the public sentiment in India at the moment.

    I think it will bruise the ego of our fans if India doesnít send its full-strength team to the Asia Cup.

    If I was BCCI, I would have made sure of it. If the second-string Indian team beats Pakistan, the latter will feel humiliated.

    If Indiaís-second string side loses, it will be used as a learning curve for the young players and the narrative that a full-strength Indian team would have been Pakistan would be peddled.

    It is a win-win situation for India in my book.

    Even without couple of key players, India can still hold its own provided selectors do their job. Shaw, Agarwal, Rahul can easily replace the top order. We have some exciting talents coming through in the bowling division and they could be even better than the likes of Kumar, Shami.

    Given tbe very short gap between England tests and Asia Cup, we should not pick anyone playing the test series.
    No place for Dhoni and Raina either.

    Team I want - Rohit (c), KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Shreyas Iyer, Rayudu, Shubman Gill, Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Chahal, Kuldeep, Siraj, Rajpoot, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh

    Team we will get - Rohit (c), Dhawan, KL Rahul, Mayank Agrawal, DK, Raina, Rayudu, Dhoni (wk), Vijay Shankar, Chahal, Kuldeep, Sid Kaul, Shardul Thakur, Siraj

    Parwez Rasool has done well in ongoing Duleep Trophy, will be a dark horse.

    Pakistan had same core of players in Nz series for ODI and T20. In ODI, you couldn't even chase 250 but in T20s was chasing 200 pretty easily. Windies will chase anything in T20 but would struggle to cross 250 in ODI. Formats matter a lot. In T20, one good over can change the game and similarly one batsman going berserk in one over can win the game for you. Both of that happened in Nidahas final.

    We did not chase 200 in any T20 in NZ. An India-Pakistan game for a bunch of youngsters will leave India as massive underdogs going into the game, no matter how talented they are. I doubt BCCI is willing to take that risk in a tournament involving Pakistan for non-cricketing reasons.

    Sorry, I mixed your game with Australia with Nz. But I hope you got the jist. Same folks who chase well in T20 falter in ODI.
    Regarding yoingsters, I share your opinion. No way in hell, BCCI would send a depleted squad intentionally in any tournament involving Pakistan.Though I want Kohli and Bumrah to be rested.

    That he's been picked for a Duleep Trophy team shows he's very much in contention. Irfan Pathan being the new J&K Coach means he's a high profile backer now. Some good performances and you never know.

    Not our fault Indians play too much IPL.

    No excuses here. If you lot can't send your full-strength team, your players are weak. Period.

    We'll be playing AUS and NZ and then SA non-stop right after the Asia Cup, and similarly no excuses of fatigue will be used if we do lose.

    These guys are professionals. This is their life. Play otherwise retire.

    A population of 1.2 billion - if resting 1 or 2 players results in you guys losing, then that's a sad nation right there.

    I think a lot of posters here fail to realize that once you take out Kohli and Bumrah (and Dhawan in ICC competitions), India can field 2 teams which are about the same in quality.

    I hope to see Krunal and Pant in the squad.

    They have done enough to earn a call up in the main side and deserve some game time ahead of world cup. You can't always count on your best players to be fit right ahead and don't want to get caught napping then taking players with less experience.

    Rayudu's performance was never in doubt. He was selected and dropped for not being fit enough(failed the yoyo test ahead of England tour).

    Kohli's back is giving him trouble. He might power through the England series but I highly doubt he will play the Asia Cup.

    Hardik will also most probably be rested because he would have played every game on the English tour.

    Bhuvi might not even be fit to play, it seems.

    So Kohli, Hardik and Bhuvi will most definitely be rested.

    They might even decide to rest Dhawan or Rahul - one of those 2. Because they have also each played every match but one on this tour.

    Why select DK instead of Pant? We already have an experienced wk in Dhoni. Might as well start investing in the future rather than have a 34-year old back-up for a 37-year old 1st choice wk.

    And I really doubt that Ashwin and Khaleel will get picked. Chahal only plays LOI anyway. Why rest him? And Ashwin has picked up a side strain so they wouldn't him to do more damage.

    Whether anybody likes it or not dhoni is going to be in wc2019. Taking that into consideration to keep him match fit he will figure in all odi squads since he is not playing tests anyway. Pant seems better option as of today but hey bcci thinks otherwise

    In fact it would be in fear of the chest thumpers in India and their media that BCCI cannot even think about sending a second string side and practically "throw" the matches against Pak.
    Depends on what BCCI thinks is more important, Asia Cup or doing well in Australia?

    If it is the latter they definitely need to give their team solid rest after a gruelling 2 month tour of England! I think India's priority will be to retain their test ranking, especially if England beat them in the last 2 tests.

    'If' India make it to the Asia cup finals they fly to Australia after just 2 weeks! No sensible management will have their bowlers play a handful of ODI games in the Middle East of all places in between two tours. It's 35+ degrees out there!

    Rohit was never part of test team but ashwin has decent odi record and can be a bowling all rounder along with bhuvaneshwar and deepak chahar which will take our batting to 9 and chahal / kuldeep both are wrist spinners so an offie with either of them can bring variety to our attack.
    Reality is Ashwin was made scapegoat for ct loss but in reality dhoni,yuvraj,jadhav were complete failures in that tournament
    So we had to accommodate pandya to hit some runs lately but a bowling allrounder is more required than pandya who is more of a batting allrounder in odis
