Watch: Captain Rohit Sharma Forgets India's Team Changes Against Bangladesh At Toss - Video Goes Viral
On Friday, India made wholesale changes to their starting XI for the final Super 4 match of the Asia Cup 2023. Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, and Prasidh Krishna replaced Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, and Kuldeep Yadav.
India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl against Bangladesh in the game, which led to a humorous situation. After the toss, Rohit forgot about the alterations made to the Indian lineup.
"We'll take the pitch first." We haven't done it in the tournament, and we haven't done it under lights, so it offers us a chance to bat under lights. The wicket truly has something for everyone. Pacers who bend their backs during the day have also seen movement, and spinners have received aid.
You must be courageous and play your natural game. "We have to give some game time to some other guys who haven't played," Rohit explained.
Tilak, who shined in his recent T20I debut, was given his ODI debut for their insignificant Super 4 match against Bangladesh.
Shreyas Iyer, India's middle order hitter, missed his third consecutive game, according to the BCCI, because he "has shown improvement but is not yet fully fit." Tanzib Shakib made his ODI debut for Bangladesh.
