Just In: The selected Team India squad for Asia Cup 2022 was seen at the Airport while leaving for Dubai. The cameras captured the skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, his wife, Anushka Sharma, and other members at Airport.
However, the complete Indian Squad will touch down in Dubai in patches as some of their cricketers are currently on a Zimbabwe tour. KL Rahul, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, and Deepak Hooda will be landing in Dubai today late in the night.
Meanwhile, the scattered Pakistani Squad has also reached Dubai ahead of Asia Cup 2022. The skipper Baber Azam alongside a few members took a direct flight from the Netherlands for Dubai. Mohammad Husnain, who replaced Shaheen Afridi, will fly from the UK, while Asif Ali and four other squad members will fly to the host country from Pakistan.
