The Indian team is playing in the Asia Cup before the 2023 ODI World Cup. The Indian team has made it to the final of the 2023 Asia Cup. India’s B team will also take part in the Asian Games. Both the Indian women’s and men’s teams will be directly involved in the quarterfinal round of the 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou, China. Even before the Asian Games, the Indian cricket team suffered a major blow. One of his star players is injured.
This player was injured
According to Indian Express report, Indian fast bowler Shivam Mavi is injured and may miss the 2023 Asian Games. It is not yet known where he was injured. BCCI may announce his replacement in the coming days. Umran Malik could get a chance in place of Shivam Mavi. According to the report, Yash Dayal was supposed to replace Mavi earlier but he is already injured. Given the restrictions at the Asian Games Village, no reserve player will accompany the Indian team.
If Umran Malik gets a chance instead of Shivam Mavi, it would be nothing less than a gift for him. He has also played for Team India once. He has taken 13 wickets in 10 ODI matches and 11 wickets in 8 T20 matches for India.
