Scott Styris: KL Rahul Is Prepared To Play Against Pakistan In The Asia Cup

Styris said he has no concerns about the batter’s comeback to form and that he expects the Indian opener to get further momentum and return to form soon.

On Wednesday, former New Zealand cricketer Scott Styris predicted that Indian batsman KL Rahul will be ready to go when India takes on archrivals Pakistan in a must-see Asia Cup match on August 28. Following suffering a devastating injury after the IPL 2022, Rahul had to endure an extended layoff from cricket before making his comeback in the just concluded ODI series in Zimbabwe.

India’s Asia Cup campaign will commence on the 28th of August with a tense matchup versus Pakistan.

With him back on the squad, India has a far better chance of claiming their eighth consecutive Asia Cup title. The United Arab Emirates will host the Asia Cup in 2022 from August 27 to September 11.

“When it comes to KL Rahul specifically, I wouldn’t worry either. The last innings, with its 46 deliveries, was particularly worrisome. If that’s the case, then game time in the middle must be near, and he’ll soon be speaking the language with ease. This is much more important than the nets. In light of this, I believe he will be prepared to fight Pakistan “Styris made this claim on the Sports 18 programme Sports Over The Top.

Styris said he has no concerns about the batter’s return to form and that he expects the Indian opener to regain his form and strength.

“So, how about that one now? But I agree with you; I think he’ll be fine. The absence of Shaheen Afridi, who we know is injured, is to blame; KL Rahul can only be dismissed by a bowler who uses the same kind of aggressive approach that Afridi does while bowling. Two strikes: leg before wicket and bowled. The absence of the key man who would have revealed this vulnerability. In my opinion, K.L. Rahul still has a shot at being the superstar he unquestionably is; after all, as Saba so astutely noted, the necessary pedigree is present “Additionally, he mentioned.

Six teams will compete in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the 15th annual Asia Cup (main event). India, the defending champions, also holds the record for most victories, with seven. The previous competition was played using the ODI format, but this year’s tournament will use the T20 format.

Group A consists of India, Pakistan, and a qualifying team; Group B includes Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. In the group stage, each team plays each other once; the two best teams from each group then move on to the Super 4 round. Two of the Super 4’s best teams will advance to the championship round.

Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul (vp), Virat Kohli (vc), Suryakumar Yadav (wk), Rishabh Pant (wk), Deepak Hooda (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (wk), R Ashwin (wk), Yuzvendra Chahal (wk), Ravi Bishnoi (wk), Arshdeep Singh
