Former cricketer Aakash Chopra picked up India’s bowling attack for the upcoming Asian Games, which are scheduled to be held in September 2023 in Hangzhou, China. Aakash Chopra stated that seam bowler Deepak Chahar could be one of the seamers in the squad.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made the decision to send both the men’s and women’s teams to the Asian Games. The BCCI will send their second-string squads for the Asian Games as the tournament schedule clashes with the ODI World Cup 2023.

Deepak Chahar Is In My Side – Aakash Chopra

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra pointed out that Deepak Chahar isn’t in the selector’s scheme of things for the World Cup, which is set to be played between October and November.

“They are not even discussing Deepak Chahar when the team was selected for the West Indies tour. But he should get fit, I feel he should be fit now also. So Deepak Chahar is in my side,” Chopra said.

“I feel Umran Malik should be kept in the team. I am doubtful Umran Malik will be in the World Cup squad. So Umran Malik will be in my team. A bowler who bowls at 150 kph, you have to respect him and keep him in your team,” he added.

Ravi Bishnoi Will Be A Part Of My Team – Aakash Chopra

The cricketer-turned-commentator included Ravi Bishnoi and Varun Chakaravarthy in his team, saying that the spinners wouldn’t make it to the World Cup squad.

“I have given a place to Ravi Bishnoi in my team if he doesn’t become a part of the World Cup team. Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja are already there, so let’s be fair, he might not be there. So Ravi Bishnoi will be a part of my team,” he continued.

“Then I have kept Varun Chakaravarthy as another spinner because his performances have been good. He played in the World Cup. He was probably a little undercooked at that time but if you see the last season of the IPL, you will say Varun Chakaravarthy has arrived,” he concluded.

Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, and Ravi Bishnoi were named in India’s T20 squad for the upcoming five-match T20 series against the West Indies. Axar, Chahal, and Kuldeep were also part of the ODI squad, but Bishnoi wasn’t included.
