Team India predicted playing XI for IND vs BAN Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match: Rohit Sharma-led Indian Cricket Team has already reached the Asia Cup 2023 Final after back-to-back wins over Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super-4 stage 2023. Ahead of Sunday’s blockbuster Asia Cup Final showdown, the Men in Blue will square off against Shakib Al Hasan’s Bangladesh (IND vs BAN) at the R Premadasa cricket stadium in Colombo on Friday. IND vs BAN match – the final match of Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 round between India and Bangladesh is scheduled to kickstart from 3 pm Indian standard time (IST). Many changes are expected in India’s playing XI for this match. Most likely, senior players will be rested as today’s IND vs BAN match is a dead rubber. 

India’s Predicted Playing XI for IND vs BAN Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match

As per reported by Cricbuzz, it is highly likely that India’s playing XI from their previous match against Sri Lanka will see quite a few changes. It is being predicted that star pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj, who have played all four India’s matches so far in the Asia Cup, may be rested for today’s IND vs BAN Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match.

With Asia Cup 2023, Bumrah made his comeback to the national team after a long gap of 10 months. He even suffered a massive injury scare during India’s Super 4 match against Sri Lanka where he almost sustained a serious injury to his ankle. The star speedster is important for team India’s ODI World Cup 2023 plans and the team management won’t consider risking playing Bumrah in a dead rubber.

Mohammed Shami and Prasidh Krishna, who haven’t played a single match in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 tournament so far, are expected to come in as replacements for Bumrah and Siraj. There is also a possibility that the team management may consider dropping star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, bring in Shardul Thakur as his replacement in India XI. Also, either Suryakumar Yadav or Tilak Verma may get a chance.
