India will be starting their Asia Cup 2022 campaign with an opener against their arch-rivals, Pakistan. The entire country will be vociferously backing the Men in Blue to avenge their former defeat in the T20I World Cup which opened up a box of questions for Virat Kohli and company.
There have been significant developments in the Indian fold ever since the T20I World Cup with the most noteworthy change happening that of the captain that saw Rohit Sharma taking over the hem with Virat Kohli stepping down.

Here is what Salman Butt had to say about India’s chances of bagging the Asia Cup 2022
A lot will be on Rohit’s plate as they eye to produce a significant upshot in a major event involving multiple teams. This will also be Rohit Sharma’s first major tournament as the skipper of the national team and the stakes will be much higher than ever.
Former Pakistani opener and captain, Salman Butt expressed a shocking verdict that stated that the Men in Blue are actually primed and set to lift the trophy if things go according to plans. Salman Butt took to his Youtube channel to open up on India’s prospect of winning the tournament and the Indian fans would be pleased to know what the southpaw had to say.
Butt was heard quoting, “Yes, they can win the Asia Cup. Do they lack Vitamin C (laughs)? The type of cricket they are playing, the pool of players they have, people will consider them favorites. But then there is Pakistan, who can beat any team on their day. Afghanistan is the dark horse as they can get bowled out easily but can also do the same to other teams.”

The tournament was first slated to be in Sri Lanka but the current status of the nation where political unrest is blowing in full swing forced ACC to play its hand and the fray had to be moved to the UAE concerning the safety and well-being of the players.
