Rohit Sharma will lead India in the next Asian Cup of 2018 in the absence of Virat Kohli. Rohit Sharma, also affectionately called & # 39; man of action & # 39; for his ability to hit the bowlers over the fence, he threw himself into the net when he started practicing for the Asian Cup. But surprisingly for many, including his teammate in India, the spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, Rohit was seen playing with a frontal defense on the net. Chahal did not waste time to mock the first-rate hitter in his Instagram post and said: "Defense nahi karne ka bhau udane ka hai @ rohitsharma45 bhaiya".
Both Rohit Sharma and Yuzvendra Chahal had not managed to find a place in the Indian team for the recently concluded series of tests in England. However, the duo returned to India's 16-member team for the Asian Cup.
India will begin its campaign against Hong Kong on September 18. He will later face his archrival Pakistan on September 19.
The Asia Cup 2018, in the course of a fortnight, will be played in two different venues in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), specifically, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
The tournament is divided into two different groups with India, Pakistan and Hong Kong located in Group A.
India has been the most successful team in the tournament, winning the title six times.
Group B includes Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
Sri Lanka has won the Asian Cup title five times.
