On Monday 8 August 2022, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selected a fifteen-member strong team for the Asia Cup 2022. In this tournament, the team will be commanded by Rohit Sharma and the vice-captain will be KL Rahul.
There was curiosity among the people about the selection of the team for the Asia Cup, and whether the name of Virat Kohli would be included in this list or not.
The former captain Virat Kohli was not in form for some time, as Kohli has now become a part of the squad for Asia Cup, will he keep the curiosity of the audience with his incredible batting? Especially people will be expected with the bat of Virat in the match between India and Pakistan.
Jasprit Bumrah will be ruled out of the 2022 Asia Cup due to a back injury, but sources have confirmed that Bumrah will have to be ruled out of the six-nation continental tournament.
How Bumrah got injured is still in doubt. He is currently in the United States, enjoying the holidays with his family and friends.
Some of the Indian pacers last played in an ODI series against England in July and have since been rested for the following series. Bumrah was not in the rubber against West Indies and was not included in the squad for the Asia Cup 2022 tour of Zimbabwe.

Jasprit Bumrah will now require an intensive rehabilitation program of a few months at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) Bangalore. He is likely to be fit for the home T20 series against Australia and South Africa in September-October.
Jasprit Bumrah’s absence from the Asia Cup 2022 will be a major disappointment for the Men in Blue. He is an important team and a vital member of the bowling unit in the Indian lineup. Also, post his recovery, he will need some practice games to get into the rhythm for the high-pressure T20 World Cup 2022.
