“I worry about the selection with this niggle,” Sanjay Manjrekar’s big statement on KL Rahul’s Asia Cup selection.

The BCCI recently announced India’s Asia Cup squad, and the rationale behind the selection of some players is constantly being questioned by cricket experts and fans on social media. One of them is KL Rahul, who is supposed to be opening the Indian innings in the Asia Cup 2023, but so far there has been no update from KL Rahul’s side on his injury, which he sustained during the IPL while fielding. It was a calf injury, due to which he had to skip playing for the rest of the IPL season. The Indian squad has a backup, Sanju Samson, who is included in case KL Rahul doesn’t play.

India will be kickstarting their journey in the Asia Cup with arch rivals Pakistan as the two teams will face each other on September 2nd, and there are still questions on KL Rahul’s fitness and form as the batter flopped against Pakistan when they encountered him last year during the ICC T20 World Cup, and since then he has been out of form, but Indian selectors have shown confidence in him and are sure that it is just a niggle and he can play in the ODI matches as this time the Asia Cup is going to be conducted in ODI format.

Ex-India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar said these things about Indian players batting line-up and what type of flexibility they should maintain during the match.

I think with the starting template or with the plan at the start of the game switching an important position. The whole debate really is about how your 4, 5, 6 are going to look. KL Rahul, I worry about the selection with this niggle; Shreyas Iyer more optimistic and both Ravi (Shastri) and myself when we talked about Virat Kohli at number 4, that’s the kind of flexibility I’m talking about, not while the match is happening and just for a short time where somebody can tackle a particular bowler,”
