The second-string Indian cricket team have reached Hangzhou for the Asian Games 2023. Indian cricket is making its debut in the multi-sport event and with the World Cup clashing against the Asian Games, the management have sent a second-string team with Ruturaj Gaikwad leading the squad.

Team India have directly qualified for the quarter-finals due to their ICC rankings and they will be facing Nepal tomorrow. The Nepal team created a world record by scoring the highest total in T20I history. 

Let's look at the three players who will be having a spotlight on themselves in this knockout game:

Yashasvi Jaiswal

The southpaw, Yashasvi Jaiswal recently made his international debut on the West Indies tour. He also smashed a century in his debut innings and has announced himself on the greatest stage. On the same tour, he made his T20 debut as well. He smashed 84 in his second T20I and showed the amount of quality he brings into the squad. 

Yashasvi will be a crucial player for this Indian team considering the form he is in. He had an amazing IPL season where he scored 625 runs. He will be the one to look out for in tomorrow's game against Nepal. 

Kushal Malla

No one was familiar with Kushal's name until he smashed the fastest T20I century. Well, that's the power of one knock as it can turn you into a star overnight. He smashed 137 not out against Mongolia and helped Nepal cruise a thumping win of 273 runs. 

At just 19 years of age, Kushal has broken the record of Rohit Sharma's fastest T20I century. As Nepal lock horns with the Indian team tomorrow, Kushal Malla will be the one to look out for considering they will be facing the tough opponents. 

Rinku Singh

At this point in time, who doesn't want to see Rinku Singh play? No one. The night he smashed five sixes in the last over of Yash Dayal to win the game, he became a star. He recently made his international debut against Ireland and scored 38 off just 21 deliveries. 

Rinku has been selected to represent India at the Asian Games after smashing 474 runs in the IPL 2023. With the role of a finisher in the Indian team, Rinku can be seen hitting some long balls in tomorrow's game.
