Sourav Ganguly said that Axar Patel was preferred over Yuzvendra Chahal in India’s squad for the Asia Cup 2023 because of his batting.
He said that the selectors made the right decision by picking Axar. Ganguly said that Chahal can return to the team if someone gets injured.
“They have picked Axar Patel ahead of Yuzvendra Chahal because of his batting. I think it is a good decision. Chahal can still return if someone gets injured. This is a 17-member squad, and two players will have to move out,” he said during an event conducted by Cycle Pure Agarbathi:
Yuzi didn’t play in a single game during India’s three-match ODI series against the West Indies, with the management playing Kuldeep Yadav.
