Avesh Khan has been ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022, with Deepak Chahar replacing him for the remaining matches. The Men in Blue have a game left against Afghanistan if they don’t qualify for the finale.
In the latest game against Sri Lanka in Dubai, Avesh was not included in the Playing XI as he couldn’t recover from the fever. He had missed the last game with the Men in Green, which India lost by 5 wickets.
Chahar recently made a comeback after a long injury layoff and was impressive against Zimbabwe.
He was kept on standby for the Asia Cup. Deepak has been one of the best Indian bowlers with a new ball in the shortest format of the game.
On the other hand, Avesh was expensive in the first two contests against Pakistan and Hong Kong.
