Young players are trump cards for India in Asia Cup and World Cup

Sri Lanka’s cricket legend Chaminda Vaas says India does not rely on their star batter Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma as many young players can be considered as trump cards for upcoming events Asia Cup and World Cup 2023.

India will play first in Asia Cup as they start on August 31, and up to host ICC Men’s World Cup which will start October 5. With young players proving themselves in the recent matches he thinks the young players would be ace for Team India.

Chaminda said, “If you talk about the Indian team, not only Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are trump cards, there are so many young cricketers who are trump cards, like Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav.

Yashasvi (Yashasvi Jaiswal) is playing well, Shubman Gill is playing well, and there are so many bunches of talent in India. Everybody is going to be competitive. When it comes to batting, I think India does not depend on Virat and Rohit all the time, others have also chipped in and if Virat and Rohit perform then mostly the game will be won by India.”

Chaminda is a bowling coach of the Colombo Strikers team in the Lanka Premier League. He talks about the importance of Jasprit Bumrah in the team and says it will be a huge benefit for India if he gets fit before the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023.

Jasprit Bumrah was sidelined from action since September 2022 and said to be in the final stage of rehabilitation after his injury. He has been bowling with full intensity in nets under the supervision of Phsyio from the National Cricket Academy.

“It would not be easy but we know that Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best bowlers in the world, the way he had performed, he is a very consistent player. India is really looking to get his services.

However, it happens on the rehabilitation and injury as well but I am pretty sure that the trainer and physio working in a team to get him fit. If he gets fit, then it will be a huge benefit for India in World Cup,” the former Sri Lankan cricketer added.

When asked about his favourites in the Asia Cup, Chaminda said, “I am sure that Sri Lanka also looking to defend the title and would be trying to do their best for Asia Cup. When you look into the other teams, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and Bangladesh, they all have good players and have been playing really well.

I am pretty sure that the team has a different strategy especially playing in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. And they have players according to condition, so every team has an opportunity when it comes to Asia Cup.”

“it is very difficult to predict anything, I always say that the best team will play according to the situation and surface and the balance team has the opportunity to win the world cup and Asia cup.”

According to Chaminda Vaas, the team could score 320 to 350 runs on 50 overs format they should be able to defend the run which could help win the World Cup.

“We have seen that all the 50 over game goes for 325-350 runs, so whoever can get 320-350 and defend can win the tournament.“
