Rohit Sharma leads India in Asia Cup 2023. India has named a 17-member squad for the tournament. Players like Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, and Jasprit Bumrah are back in the team after missing the field for a long time due to injuries.

Tilak Varma is the first name on this list. Tilak Varma’s entry in Asia Cup 2023 was a little surprising for everyone. However, Varma has also showcased marvelous form in his recent debut series to get an invite to the squad.

Although the left-handed batsman has been picked in the India squad, it is highly unlikely that he might get to play a game. In the middle-order, India has players like Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, and Suryakumar Yadav. Moreover, Tilak Varma has no experience in ODIs. Hence, management might shy away from picking him in any game.
