Deepak Chahar included in the place of Hardik Pandya.
Ravindra Jadeja and Siddharth Kual replaced injured Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel in the Indian Squad.
India’s premium All-rounder Hardik Pandya ruled out from the Asia cup 2018 due to acute lower back injury. Pandya sustained injury against Pakistan while bowling his 5th overs fifth ball and suddenly fall after deleivering the ball. He wasn’t able to stand up on his feet, Physio checked him and stretchered him out of the ground for assessing his Injury.
This is a big loss for India in the initial stage of the tournament. India needed pandya’s explosion in the lower order. His absence would certenly thin India’s depth in batting. However, Deepak Chahar isn’t a bad option as an All-rounder.His batting might be not as good as Pandya, but he is much better bowler than him. If Chahar performed well with both bat and ball in the tournament than he can give India an alternative of Hardik Pandya in the prestigious 2019 world cup.
India made two more changes in the Squad as Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel were injured and they are replaced by Siddharth Kual and Ravindra Jadeja
