Twitter explodes with different reactions as BCCI announces the official squad list for Team India for Asia Cup 2022.
Just as BCCI announced the official squad for Asia Cup 2022, Twitterati was quick to bring out their favouritism in the selection. Countless comments flew in with the selection of a few players, and the omission of a few players.
Analyzing the comments, a few people were not happy with the inclusion of Avesh Khan, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, Ashwin, and even Virat Kohli. Whereas a few people wanted the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Mohammed Shami, Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, etc.
In addition, Netizens were also bemused by the absence of India’s leading pacers, Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel. Both were supposedly confirmed starters in the playing 11, but are now missing the squad due to injury.

@ashwinravi99 doesn’t make any sense in t20? Probably the slowest player in the team, @imjadeja is overrated in t20, @deepak_chahar9 would have better option then @Avesh_6 but he hasn’t played for a while. India should have one more fast bowler for a spinner

Who deepak Hooda
Why not Sanju Samson?

Instead of Virat Kohli..I think Sanju Samson or Shreyas Iyer deserve the spot.. instead of Asia Cup Virat Kohli should be selected for Zimbabwe tour.. unfair for inform players..bad selectors

Baki sab bat side me rakho.
Aavesh ki team me hone ki wajah ab tak samaj nahi aaye.
Tere are many better right arm medium pacer in domestic circuit
Avesh neither have pace nor that swing Like Bhuvi. He is like bowling machine who just comes and bowls without any plan.

Why Ashwin,why not akshar
Akshar is far better than Ashwin (with bat +with ball)

Yaar Ye kya Squad hai 🤦🤦🤦 Aavesh Khan Kyo hai Aur Sanju Samson Kyo nahi hai.

Seriously?this is the team for Asia Cup?shami Umesh Subhmann Sikhar Shardul none??3 leg spinners?
You have chosen Avesh Khan over Umesh and shami? Moreover you don't think Kuldeep could be an option?
Seems @BCCI had taken a challenge to cut down followers of cricket in India. RIP

The fans’ frustration is understandable, but unfortunately, BCCI can only select 15 players doesn’t matter which good players miss out. Hopefully, team India are able to defend the Asia Cup 2022, which is scheduled from August 27 to September 11, 2022.
The first match for Team India, scheduled for August 28 vs Pakistan. Supposedly, this would be Virat Kohli’s 100th T20I match.
