Two days prior to the eagerly anticipated Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan, the BCCI published some surprising tweets. Many fans commented on the BCCI’s tweets, claiming that the board had already disclosed the starting XI for the match. The BCCI did not mention Ravindra Jadeja in its tweets.
In the opening game of the 2022 Asia Cup, India and Pakistan will continue their on-field rivalry. Only ICC competitions and Asia Cups still feature matches between the two sides. India and Pakistan will square off against one other for the first time since the T20 World Cup in 2021.
The BCCI posted fascinating tweeted images of 11 players in the order they bat in the final two days leading up to the much-anticipated match. In the first image, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul can be seen getting ready for the game, while Virat Kohli is shown in the second image.
India’s likely team for the Asia Cup is a topic that is receiving more and more attention as each day goes by. For diehard fans, India’s final XI for the competition is expected to represent their approach to the T20 World Cup, which will be played later in October in Australia.
Team India’s Friday net practice in Dubai was captured in a number of images that BCCI posted. The pictures are as follows – KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh.
The Instagram post has 10 pictures with the caption, “#TeamIndia train, our cameras go click-click. #AsiaCup2022 | #AsiaCup.”

The BCCI’s tweets were instantly noticed by the fans, and some claimed that the organisation had disclosed Team India’s starting lineup for the match against Pakistan. In response to BCCI’s tweets, another user asked, “Is this the playing XI for our 1st game?”
“India vs Pakistan”, One of the supporters commented, “Mujhe lagta hai ya playing x.” while another said, “BCCI tip for playing 11 with these photographs.” Others, however, made jokes, “Leaking Playing XI” and ” LOL Playing X11 Thanks in advance, Bata Diya.”
Deepak Hooda, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, and Ravi Bishnoi are among the other Indian athletes that will compete in the Asia Cup competition. Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, and Deepak Chahar were also nominated as backup players for India for the competition.
In order to get revenge after losing by 10 wickets to Babar Azam’s team at the same location in October for the 2021 T20 World Cup, India will open their campaign against Babar Azam’s team. They will play Hong Kong, a qualifier, in their ensuing Group A match.
