After the West Indies tour, Team India will have an Ireland tour where they will play 3 T20I matches. So for that, Indian star pacer Jasprit Bumrah who was out of the Indian setup due to a back injury will do a comeback, and give auditions of his fitness before going to the Asia Cup 2023.
The India squad for the Ireland 2023 tour mostly has the same players as the Asian Games 2023 squad. But the difference is that Jasprit Bumrah will lead the side in Ireland, and Ruturaj will lead the side in Asian Games 2023.
India Squad for Ireland 2023 – (18th Aug to 23rd Aug)
Jasprit Bumrah (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad (VC), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shivam Dube, Sanju Samson (Wk), Jitesh Sharma (Wk), Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Mukesh Kumar, and Avesh Khan.
India Squad for Asian Games 2023 – (23rd Sept to 8th Oct)
Ruturaj Gaikwad (Captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rahul Tripathi, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma (Wk), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Mukesh Kumar, Shivam Mavi, Shivam Dube, and Prabhsimran Singh (Wk).
Standby players: Yash Thakur, Sai Kishore, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Sai Sudarsan.
So, it is also clear that players who are participating in the Asian Games will not be available for the World Cup 2023 squad because of the clash of the dates and the World Cup squad has to be announced at least two weeks before the start of the tournament. We might know the actual Squad during the middle of the Asia Cup 2023 only.
Also, It is most likely that KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer won’t be part of the Asia Cup 2023 India Squad. As of now, there’s no considerable information about their fitness is available. So here is the best possible and the most likely Asia Cup 2023 India Squad:
Asia Cup 2023 India Squad – (30th Aug to 17th Sept)
Rohit Sharma (C), Hardik Pandya (VC), Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, Tilak Varma, Ishan Kishan (Wk), Sanju Samson (Wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal.
