Asia Cup 2022: 3 changes Team India might do for the Sri Lanka match

Asia Cup 2022

The Indian team suffered their first defeat in the Asia Cup 2022 against Pakistan and many things are also coming out about it. While some questioned the team’s playing XI, there were others who blamed the plans for the loss. In such a situation, all eyes are on the match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.


The match against Sri Lanka is important for Team India. If the Indian team has to face defeat in this match, then they will most likely be out of the race for the final of the Asia Cup 2022. In such a situation, there is also a need to make changes in the playing XI.

Dinesh Karthik back in the team for Rishabh Pant

In their match against Pakistan, Team India gave Rishabh Pant importance by dropping Dinesh Karthik without getting a proper chance in the Asia Cup. In the match against Pakistan, Pant was dismissed after playing a bad shot. It is important to use Dinesh Karthik’s experience in his place. Karthik can play the role of a great finisher. Apart from this, he is able to play according to the conditions. His work behind the wicket is also superb.


Axar Patel for Deepak Hooda

Axar Patel has been included in place of Jadeja and he can play as an all-rounder. He can be included in the playing XI in place of Deepak Hooda. Hooda mainly bats in the lower, Axar Patel also plays as a lower order batter, but he is more experienced that Hooda which can be helpful as he did the same in West Indies. In such a situation, the team will have the option of a dependable bowler.

Ashwin in for Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal’s performance has not been spectacular in the tournament so far. There is already a leg-spinner in the team in the form of Ravi Bishnoi. In such a situation, now is the time to bring Ashwin in place of Chahal. Ashwin has a lot of experience and variations. He has the ability to make a significant contribution with the bat as well. In such a situation, he can be in the playing XI of the team.
