He feels that the comeback of Ambati Rayudu and Kedar Jadhav is a good thing for Team India. Rohit Sharma went on to add that he is happy for both the people for making a comeback in the team.

”I already did captaincy for India. Still, I am very excited to lead the team in Asia Cup 2018. This is very big tournament for me. It is a bit of nervous thing but I am quite excited for it,” Rohit Sharma quoted.

However, as Ambati Rayudu said, the comeback of the duo is important for India to get an answer for the number 4 slot. With Virat Kohli staying away from the Asia Cup 2018, a lot of things will be dependent on them.

India to start the Asia Cup 2018 against Hong Kongs:

India will enter the tournament as the defending champions. They will take on Hong Kong in their first game on September 18th in Dubai. It will be followed by the game against their arch-rivals, Pakistan on the very next day.
