Enough with the chit-chat. Let’s see what the team is.

|Axar Patel||Bowling Allrounder|
|Kuldeep Yadav||Left-arm Chinaman|
So this is what the expected playing eleven may look like. Let’s discuss different aspects, and then we will see the team’s strengths and weaknesses.
Batting line up
Batting has always been India’s strength. They are to batting what Pakistan has been too fast bowling – A country filled with world-class batters. From Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli in modern times, India has never lacked a solid batter to challenge teams on the world stage.
If we look at batting in the Asia Cup team, India’s batting depth goes deep. They have players like Ravinder Jadeja, who can bat at number 7. Any batting collapse in the middle of the 50-over game will not make India stumble.
When we look at their proper batters, we have titans like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shubham Gill, and KL Rahul. These players are stalwarts who have proved themselves on the field numerous times.
Whenever the Indian team has been in trouble, Virat Kohli has always pulled them out of that. Rohit Sharma has been a constant number one in the batting line-up for the team. He has provided a lot of strength to the foundation of their batting.
Shubham Gil has been a recent addition to the team, but he has created an impact. He has batted at an average of 65 with a strike rate 107 in his 24 ODI games. This is a serious performance, and we can consider him a future star for the team.
KL Rahul has struggled to find his form, but it doesn’t mean you can’t treat him as a threat to the bowlers.
Regarding power hitters, players like Jadeja, Hardik, and Yadav can knock every delivery out of the park.
Bowling line up
On the face, it may look like India lacks in the bowling department. But when you look closely, their all-rounders have played as proper bowlers at some points in their careers. Players like Axar Patel came into the scene as an excellent left-arm spinner. Then you have Jadeja, who can control runs when a team wants it.
Hardik Pandya has also shown his prowess in the death overs. And when you look at bowlers like Mohammad Shami, you will see a lot of experience. Shami has won India a lot of matches with his raw pace. At the same time, Kuldeep brings left-arm wrist spin, which is uncommon in cricket. So, it will be hard to read him for the batters.

India will be relying on their batting a lot. When you have players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, it is evident that your batting will hardly struggle against the opposition, no matter how strong they are. Plus, players like Shubham Gill provide a fresh perspective on the game. His batting is explosive, and he has a decent average considering the format.
When you look at the middle order, you will see that it is full of players who know how to win games in the T20 format.
Ravinder Jadeja has a lot of experience, so he knows how to handle if there is ever a batting collapse.
Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav are never afraid of hitting the ball outside the boundary line on every delivery.
You can say that the bowling department is relatively weaker than the batting. They only have players like Shami, who provide some experience. Bhuvi can bring that experience too, but he heavily relies on the swing early on. Considering that the Asia Cup will be played in batting, we can hardly consider him effective.
The spin department looks decent, but is it able to take wickets? Because this is what will help Indian bowlers in an ODI game.
Hence, we can say that the Indian team lacks in the bowling department and must work on it. This will make them even stronger if they work on it.
Right now, the ACC hasn’t announced the schedule. As soon as we get an update, we will review this article, and you will be able to find India’s fixtures here.
Regarding the Indian audience, Star Sports has broadcasting rights in India. They will be streaming all the games. But if you talk about live streaming, Jio Cinema is the best app for you. You will be able to stream the matches live in 4K quality.
The Asia Cup 2023 Schedule has already been uploaded to our website.
Overall, the Indian team seems to be pretty strong when it comes to Asian conditions. They have a strong batting line-up and power hitters to back them up. The bowling department lacks, but they can counter that with their experience in these playing conditions. They have spinners like Jadeja, Axar, and Kuldeep, who can control runs. So if they play their strengths and improve their weaknesses, I am sure that the Indian team with win the Asia Cup 2023
