Asia Cup 2023: Rohit Sharma’s team India will become the winner, 5 important things have to be kept in mind

Rohit Sharma-led Team India has a chance to win the Asia Cup title for the record 8th time by defeating Sri Lanka. Defeating host Sri Lanka is not going to be an easy task for Team India. However, if Team India takes care of 5 things then it can achieve success in defeating Sri Lanka in its own home.

Rohit-Virat will have to play big innings

The biggest reason for the success of Team India in the last decade has been the bat of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Even during the Asia Cup, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have shown excellent form. Virat Kohli managed to score a brilliant century against Pakistan. Whereas Rohit Sharma has scored half-centuries in three consecutive matches. If these two bat well in the final match, then it is not impossible for Team India to achieve any target.

Hardik Pandya will be the X factor

India will have the most hope from Hardik Pandya in the final. Since Team India can take the field with only two fast bowlers, Hardik Pandya will have to play the role of the third fast bowler. Hardik Pandya has taken important wickets for India on many occasions. India will have the same expectations from Hardik Pandya in the final also. Hardik Pandya also showed good form with the bat and played an inning of 89 runs against Pakistan. Team India will expect another excellent innings from Hardik Pandya in the role of finisher.

Ravindra Jadeja’s all-round performance

The most disappointing performance for India so far in the Asia Cup has been that of Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja has managed to take only 6 wickets. Jadeja has disappointed so much with the bat that he has been able to score only 25 runs in the tournament. If Team India wants to win the title, then Ravindra Jadeja will have to do wonders with the bat as well as the ball. Jadeja’s importance has increased even more due to Akshar Patel’s exclusion.

Eyes will be on Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah has made a great comeback in ODI cricket after a long gap of one year. Bumrah looks absolutely fit and his bowling has the same rhythm as before. If Bumrah is successful in getting two or three wickets for India in the beginning, then the difficulty for the Sri Lankan team will increase significantly.

Kuldeep Yadav will have to give another strong performance

Kuldeep Yadav has proved to be the most successful player for India in the Asia Cup. Kuldeep has taken 9 wickets, leaving the batsmen stunned. Another strong performance by Kuldeep can crown him the winner. Not only this, Kuldeep Yadav is also in the race to become the bowler taking the most wickets in the tournament.
