With just a few days left until the start of the 2023 Asian Cup, India has also announced its 17-man team for the tournament. It sees the return of all the key players on the team. After a long time, Team India will play to their full potential in the fast bowling division on the field where Mohammad Siraj will bowl alongside Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami.
Mohammad Siraj was given a rest due to not being fully fit during the recently concluded ODI series against West Indies. Now Siraj is ready to return to the Asian Cup and in this tournament you can see him doing a great job. It is believed that Siraj will play as the third fast bowler on the team.
In the ICC ODI Fast Bowling Rankings, Mohammad Siraj is currently ranked 5th with 670 points. At the same time, Australian speed bowler Josh Hazlewood is in first place with 705 points. There is a 35 rating point difference between the two players and Siraj has a good chance of becoming number 1.
The Indian team will play their first game against Pakistan on September 2nd in the upcoming Asian Cup. The team then plays the second game of the group against Nepal on September 4th. Team India’s entry into the Super 4 is considered almost certain. In such a situation, he gets a chance to play three more games. In such a situation, reaching the final gives India a chance to play a total of seven games. In such a situation, if Siraj is able to play great with the ball, he can reach the No. 1 position.
