India Squad For Asia Cup 2022: 3 Indian Players Who Will Not Be A Part Of The Next Asia Cup Squad
3. Dinesh Karthik
Dinesh Karthik is the first player on this list. After an impressive performance in IPL 2022, Karthik made a comeback to the national side in T20Is with the role of a finisher. He has also played a few crucial knocks in the previous T20I series. Hence, he was picked for Asia Cup 2022.
However, Karthik will not be part of the next year’s tournament. Karthik only plays in the T20Is for India and never gets a chance in the other formats. Since the next edition of the Asia Cup will be a 50-over format, Karthik will be absent from the squad.
