Ravi Bishnoi, a young leg-spinner for India, will not be participating in the key Super 4 match of the Asia Cup 2022 versus Sri Lanka, which will take place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.
Team India did not have the best of fortunes recently in the ongoing edition of the T20 tournament as they went on to concede a disheartening defeat of 5 wickets at the hands of arch-rivals Pakistan in a closely fought contest.
To secure their position in the Asia Cup 2022 championship match, the Men in Blue will need to achieve victory in both of their remaining two matches, which will take place against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.
Ravi Bishnoi is not included in India’s playing XI vs Sri Lanka
After losing the toss for the second time in a row and being told to bat first, India captain Rohit Sharma broke the major news that Ravi Bishnoi would not be included in the playing XI for today’s match against Sri Lanka. Bishnoi bowled exceptionally well despite the high level of pressure that was present during the match between India and Pakistan. He finished with impressive figures of 1 for 26, which included the crucial wicket of Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam, and he also bowled an outstanding 18th over in the death overs.
On the other hand, Rohit remarked that when looking at the playing combination of Sri Lanka, they have opted to select the seasoned off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the lineup rather than the leggie. As a result of the fact that Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Danushka Gunathilaka are all left-handed batting specialists in the middle order for the Sri Lankan team, Ashwin will play a very important part in the effort to neutralize their danger.

You don't give confidence to a young spinner like Ravi Bishnoi by dropping him the next match after a great bowling performance against arch rival Pakistan.Advertisement

As a hurt Indian cricket fan, I so wish that this arrogant and stupid team selection loses this match. You have dropped Ravi Bishnoi, who was the most impressive in the previous match and you are backing players who are apparently out of form.#INDvSL #AsiaCupT20Advertisement

Remember children, after this,Vikram Rathore will have a job, Paras Mhambrey will have a job, Prithvi Shaw will continue to warm the bench, Ravi Bishnoi will get the axe.. And we will continue to play the same top 3.

Since most of the Sri Lankan batters are left handers, R Ashwin inclusion is a good move! But Ravi Bishnoi's non inclusion pinches a bit? 😐#INDvsSL
