Asia Cup 2022: Saba Karim Comments on India’s Team Selection

Asia Cup 2022: Former Indian player and national selector Saba Karim said that the Indian team made the wrong decision by replacing the injured Ravindra Jadeja with Axar Patel in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022. During a discussion on India News Sports, he stated that they should have picked Deepak Chahar instead, considering that they didn’t have a backup pacer in their lineup as well.

However, Karim suggested that the team already has enough spin bowling options and they would have benefited by adding an extra pace bowler.

Meanwhile, Axar Patel, who was added to the squad before India’s Super 4 clash against Pakistan, wasn’t a part of the playing XI for the fixture as well. Team India suffered a heartbreaking five-wicket loss in the match as well. However, Karim also added that Team India has played five frontline bowlers in their recent T20I matches, while Hardik Pandya has always been their sixth bowling option as well.
