Team India squad for Asian Cup 2023 has been announced. This tournament will be organized in Pakistan and Sri Lanka from August 30th to September 17th. We tell you that this tournament is to be played in ODI format. This tournament is very important for Team India ahead of the ODI World Championship which will be held in October. Suryakumar Yadav has been added to the Team India squad. At the same time, Sanju Samson was included as a substitute. The fans are very upset about this. According to him, Sanju was one of the contenders for the place of this team. But they were wronged.
Wrong with Sanju Samson again
Sanju Samson hasn’t been doing much with the racquet lately. However, when Team India’s Asian Cup squad was announced, Suryakumar Yadav’s name was included. Surya’s form was very poor at ODIs. Compared to him, Sanju’s numbers at ODIs are much better. The fans’ question was that Sanju Samson was a more deserving player than Surya. But the team selection didn’t make the right decision. Let’s take a look at the stats of both ODI players.
