Avesh Khan has got a chance in the team as the third fast bowler. He has so far taken 11 wickets in 13 T20 matches for India. During this, his average has been 31.82 and the economy is 8.68. Due to injuries to Bumrah and Harshal Patel, he got a chance, but hardly got a place in the playing XI.
Young leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi may also be left out of the playing XI. The team has experienced leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Apart from these, there are also experienced spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. This is the reason why Ravi Bishnoi is finding it difficult to get a chance. This Rajasthan spinner has taken 15 wickets in 9 matches for India. In the last T20 on the West Indies tour, he took four wickets.
Deepak Hooda has played 17 matches for India so far and the team has won in all. By keeping Shreyas Iyer out, he has got a place in the Asia Cup team, but is hardly seen playing. In the top order, the team has players like KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav. Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya are in for the finishers. In such a situation, even after being a lucky charm, Deepak Hooda may have to sit on the bench during the tournament.
