On concrete roads, expect the Rohit Sharmas, Shikar Dhawans and KL Rahuls to rule the roost..In fact, for flat tracks, the Indian cupboard is overflowing with options from 17 yr olds to 35 yr olds and just about any closed eye, random pick from the cupboard will most likely decimate the bowling..Kohli is absolutely not needed here..

Any particular reason why Kohli isn't playing though? Is it all a bit beneath him?

He has played all the Asia cups since his debut. He deserves a rest for sure due to his aggravating back pain.

After the long and tough Eng series consisting of all formats, I dont see how he could play in asia cup starting in 4 days after last test. Good that he is resting.

It will be a good Asia cup with Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan all have potential to win it all.

Hotstar coverage in the UK. So not being shown on tv, what a shame

Fair enough I suppose, guess we're just lucky that he still prioritises tests

Some ridiculously over inflated averages for Pakistan's top 3. Been minnow bashing Zimbabwe minus their best players. Fakar averaging 70+, Imam 70+ and Babar 50+.
