India has bounced back pretty strong after a poor outing at the T20 World Cup 2021. Out of the 7 T20I series India has played after the T20 World Cup 2021, they have won 6 and drawn 1.
The team is on a brilliant run under skipper Rohit Sharma who was appointed as captain after Virat Kohli stepped down after last year’s T20 World Cup.
India has abundance of talent when it comes to T20 cricket and with the presence of IPL, more and more quality T20 players emerge everyday.
The selectors must’ve had a hard time choosing the perfect squad for the Asia Cup 2022 which they can try to carry forward to the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in October-November.
In a big blow to the Indian side, the leading pacer Jasprit Bumrah and another T20 bowler Harshal Patel have been ruled out of Asia Cup 2022 due to injuries. On the other hand, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul are back in the squad and Rahul is appointed as vice-captain.
Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan

Pakistan was pretty strong at the 2021 T20 World Cup. They reached the semi-finals but were knocked out by the cup winners Australia.
After the T20 World Cup, Pakistan didn’t get much of the T20I exposure. They played 2 T20I series, against Bangladesh and West Indies and played a one-off T20I against Australia at home. They won both the series with a clean sweep 3-0 but lost the single T20I match against Australia.
Pakistan defeated their arch-rivals India in the last year’s T20 World Cup in a clinical win by 10 wickets. They will face India again on 28 August and they have to brace themselves harder this time seeing India’s current form.
The leading run-scorer in T20Is for Pakistan, Babar Azam will lead the Pakistan squad in the Asia Cup 2022.
Pakistan has won the Asia Cup twice before, in 2000 and 2012.

It won't be wrong to say that Sri Lanka has levelled up their game quite quickly. After the T20 World Cup 2021, Sri Lanka has played two T20I series against Australia and one against India.
They have found some fine quality T20 players like Wanindu Hasaranga, Pathum Nissanka, Maheesh Theekshana, Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa.
The biggest T20I moment for Sri Lanka this year was their victory over Australia at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
As far as the Asia Cup is concerned, Sri Lanka is the 2nd most successful team of the tournament winning the trophy 5 times and the last one came in the 2014 edition.
