The Asian Games are starting from September 23.
New Delhi. The excitement of World Cup (World Cup 2023) and Asia Cup is everywhere. But on the one hand many eyes are on the future stars of the Indian team who are all set to wreak havoc in the Asian Games. The Asian Games are going to start from September 23 and just 10 days before, Team India has suffered a major setback. The BCCI had selected the Indian team for the Asian Games in July. But now there is news that one of the star bowlers of this team is injured, Team India fast bowler Umran Malik may be given a chance to replace him.
Umran Malik has been in many headlines since last year due to his speed. He also broke one record after another. But the last few months have not proved to be beneficial for Umran. Umran Malik got a chance against West Indies but he could not live up to the expectations. But now Umran has a great chance to make it to the Asian Games. Umran has been troubling the opposition batsmen with his bullet-fast delivery.
