Asia Cup 2022: Three Things Will Keep India Worried Ahead Of The Super Four Stage

Poor performance by the openers

The main concern for India is the lackluster opening line-up. KL Rahul, who returned after an injury break, could not excel even in an innings. The performance of skipper and opener Rohit Sharma is also disappointing. India could not build a big partnership in the opening. If the poor form continues in the matches where Rohit-Rahul partnership is coming, India is sure to suffer a big setback. In the Super Four match against Pakistan, there is a high possibility that India will drop Rahul and include Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik in the playing XI.

Pacers who are not stingy to concede runs

Pacers who are not stingy to concede runs

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the only senior in India’s pace line. Avesh Khan and Arshadeep Singh are the other two in the pace line. Both are young players. Hardik Pandya comes as the third pacer. Hardik bowled well in the first match against Pakistan. Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave a brilliant performance in both the matches. But Avesh Khan has no qualms about conceding runs. Avesh bowled 38 balls so far in the death over and conceded 114 runs. It is unlikely that India will enter the Super Four with enthusiasm. India are likely to rest Avesh and replace him with either R Ashwin or Ravi Bishnoi.

Spinners don't take wickets

Spinners don’t take wickets

It is disappointing that India’s spinners are not getting wickets as expected. Senior spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been stingy in conceding runs but not taking wickets consistently. Chahal failed to pick up wickets against Pakistan and Hong Kong. Ravindra Jadeja also doesn’t do much with spin. Jadeja scored 15 runs and 1 wicket in 4 overs against Hong Kong. Things will not be easy for India if the spinners do not perform better in the Super Four.
