Will this stupid decision cost team India today?

The incoming reports regarding the Asia Cup are suggesting that that team management is looking to rest a few key players today for the crunch clash against Afghanistan.

Apparently, the likes of Shikar Dhawan and Bumrah may not feature in the final team sheet today.

Shikar Dhawan finally found his form in the series after a forgettable England tour. Sidelining him will damage his tempo and he may not look as confident in the final match.

Also, Bumrah is a young and emerging player. He does not need much of a rest as he got plenty of it during the test series against England.

Well, the team chemistry is looking perfect and unnecessary tweaks are nothing but self-destructive moves. On top of that, a clean record in this series can push India to the top position in ICC rankings, ahead of arch-rivals Pakistan.

There is so much at stake here and any kind of unnecessary implementations can only lead to complexities for the team as a whole.
