Asia Cup 2022: The Asia Cup 2022 is scheduled to be held in the UAE from August 27. Meanwhile, BCCI has announced the Indian squad. Three fast bowlers have been included in the team for this tournament. Experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan have got a place in the team. A lot of eyes are going to be on Arshdeep and Avesh in this tournament. The reason for this is that India’s most important bowler Jasprit Bumrah is not in the team due to injury. At the same time, Avesh Khan has been given a chance in front of the experienced Mohammed Shami.
Former selectors furious over team selection
The squad of 15 players was announced by the BCCI on 8 August. Former Indian captain and selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth has expressed displeasure over this. Actually, the reason for Srikkanth’s displeasure is the absence of any other experienced fast bowler other than Bhuvneshwar Kumar. In such a situation, it is also being speculated whether Shami will be part of the team in the World Cup or not?

Mohammed Shami is not a part of T20 team since World Cup
The former selector said that he would have given a chance to an additional bowler Mohammad Shami in place of young spin bowler Ravi Bishnoi. Speaking in a show of Star Sports, he said that Shami would also have been in my team. Had I been the chairman of the selection committee, I think he would have been in the team. I don’t go with Ravi Bishnoi. But I still feel that Axar Patel would have been in my team. My team would have a tough fight between Axar Patel and Ashwin.
Talking about Mohammed Shami, he has not been a part of the team since the last T20 World Cup. In this year’s IPL, Shami performed brilliantly for Gujarat Titans. Shami has the ability to take wickets with the new ball. The former selector believes that if he was in the team, it would have been very beneficial for the team.
