Asia Cup 2023: Ishaan Kishan set to leave playing 11, KL Rahul gearing up for comeback

KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan: Team India will play its next match against Pakistan on 10 September in the Asia Cup. In this match, a big change can be seen in India’s playing XI as a wicketkeeper. The team’s main wicket-keeper batsman Rahul has returned. Rahul had missed the first two matches of the Asia Cup due to swallowing. Now that he is back, it is almost certain that Ishaan Kishan will be dropped from the playing XI. In the match played against Pakistan, Ishaan played a brilliant inning of 82 runs while batting at number five. However, despite this, Ishaan may have to sit on the bench in the match against Pakistan on September 10 as KL Rahul is India’s first choice wicketkeeper.
