Yesterday, the BCCI announced a 17-member squad for the upcoming Asia Cup tournament.

While there is the return of some big names to the team, one player’s selection caused a great stir on social media.

It was none other than Shubman Gill whose selection dilemma sparked a meme-fest on Twitter.

However, the confusion was quickly restored but by then, fans continued with their memes.

Meanwhile, the Asia Cup is scheduled to start on the 30th of August with Pakistan taking on Nepal at Multan Cricket Stadium.

On the other hand, India will start their campaign against Pakistan on the 2nd of September at Kandy’s Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.

The announcement of the squad was done by former cricketer, Ajit Agarkar who is now the current chairman of the selection committee.

But, the broadcaster for the series, Star Sports botched up the announcement.

However, they then quickly resolved the issue and issued a fresh statement saying that he is picked for the tournament.

Also, Agarkar stated that Sanju Samson is a traveling reserve for India in this tournament.
