Asian Cup 2023 IND vs. NEP: Today the Asian Cup 2023 will host a match between India and Nepal. Although Nepal’s team is considered weak, it is also certain that Team India can win this game, but anything can happen in cricket, so keep that in mind. This win is necessary to qualify for the Asian Cup Super 4. Speaking about today’s game, captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first. At the same time, there was also a change in the playing team. In addition, Rohit Sharma played a prank that no one could have guessed.
Mohammad Shami, a change in Team India’s squad, was given a chance in place of Jasprit Bumrah
Rohit Sharma had won the toss in the first game against Pakistan and then decided to bat first. Again, he won the throw, but reversed the decision, namely bowling. Captain Rohit Sharma said at the time of the throw that there had been a change in his team. Instead of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami is admitted. Jasprit Bumrah returned on Sunday leaving the Asian Cup in the middle so Mohammed Shami got the place. But the question is why Rohit Sharma chose to bat first. While the Nepal side is considered weak, Team India’s batsmen could have put up maximum runs in front of them in such a situation, but they thought differently.
The decision to bowl first was made due to the possibility of rain.
In fact, like the first game, there is a chance in this game that it will rain. The smaller the cricket format gets, the greater each team’s ability to beat anyone. If this game is also shortened, then the Nepalese team can also show a good game. Even if it rains after the conclusion of the first inning and Team India receives a modified goal per the Duckbarth-Lewis rule, India still has a chance of winning thereafter. If a change is later made during the batting, only the Indian team will benefit.
What did Rohit Sharma say at the time of the throw?
At the time of the throw, captain Rohit Sharma also said there was no particular reason for us to bowl. We fought in the last game. We want to see what the bowlers can do for us. I don’t know anything about the weather. We just want the bowlers to get better. The way we fought under pressure. Hardik and Ishaan Kishan fought brilliantly. Ishaan showed a lot of maturity and pushed the game forward. Good signs for us. This is another important game for us. Jasprit Bumrah is not included, we included Shami.
