List of players who played in Emerging Teams Asia Cup and might also play in Asia Cup 2023

While Team India mainly selected players who were just starting out or were on the cusp of their India debut, the other teams had a different approach. Players who were out of the senior team were given a chance and in some cases, a few young capped players were also included. Some of the experienced names who played in that tournament were Chamika Karunaratne and Mohammad Haris. Someone like Haris might just not play the Asia Cup but could also be a part of the World Cup squad. Here are seven players who might play in the upcoming Asia Cup:

  • Chamika Karunaratne (Sri Lanka)
  • Dunith Wellalage (Sri Lanka)
  • Mohammad Haris (Pakistan)
  • Mohammad Wasim Jr. (Pakistan)
  • Ikram Alikhil (Afghanistan)
  • Riaz Hassan (Afghanistan)
  • Wafadar Momand (Afghanistan)

A proper preparation for teams such as India and Pakistan

Meanwhile, teams like India will be happy with the schedule of this tournament. This would give them a proper platform to test their skills. The performance in Asia Cup 2023 might also help the selectors in picking the right squad for the World Cup.

Sri Lanka won the event last year. While they will look to defend it, Pakistan is also a strong contender. The team has a brilliant bowling attack that can win consistently win games for them. Afghanistan is also a team that can cause a few upsets in this tournament.
