Cricket is still a batsmen’s game. Until the celebration for sixers and boundaries stops, it remains the same. 

A number of batters will be in action in the Asia Cup tournament this year, proving their capabilities and showcasing their prowess once again. A plethora of stars are expected, with the likes of Virat Kohli and Babar Azam being the two top stars.

If India wants to win the Asia Cup, they will need the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to fire on all cylinders. Meanwhile, the same is the case with Pakistan, which would need the likes of Babar Azam to lead the team from the front.

However, they are not the only two batters under the limelight. Six teams are participating in the tournament, and they too will have a set of batters who are expected to do well. Let’s look at the top 5 batters to bet on in Asia Cup, this year, 

Who Are the Five Batters to Bet on In Asia Cup 2023?

We will primarily focus on India’s Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Pakistan’s Babar Azam, Sri Lanka’s Charith Asalanka and Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz.

Virat Kohli (India):

Known as King Kohli, Virat Kohli was going through a lean patch in the first half of 2022.

  • Nevertheless, he came back strong and played that blinder of a knock against Pakistan in the 2022 T20 World Cup, which reestablished his brand on the international stage.
  • As of writing this, Kohli had gotten back into the groove. He has slammed a couple of ODI centuries already in 2023 and will land in Sri Lanka with the best frame of mind possible.
  • Not to mention the number of runs he has scored in ODI cricket, slamming 12898 runs in 275 ODIs.

Rohit Sharma (India):

All eyes will also be on India’s captain, who, in all likelihood, will open for India alongside Shubman Gill, who would need Rohit as a mentor to succeed.

  • Rohit also has a point to prove. Last time around, under his leadership, the team did not do well in the Asia Cup, so he would like to go big.
  • He has led the team to a big win in the West Indies, but this is the Asia Cup, where the matches will be played under intense scrutiny.
  • Rohit has an awesome ODI record. He has 9,837 runs in 244 matches. It’s time for him to fire with the bat and that too on a consistent basis.

Babar Azam (Pakistan):

Do watch out for Pakistan skipper Babar Azam as well, who will lead the side. 

  • Under his leadership, Pakistan has done well in T20 cricket, but in ODI cricket, Pakistan will have to set the record straight, especially ahead of the ODI World Cup.
  • Babar is a wonderful timer of the ball, but pitches in Sri Lanka will test him. He has played 101 ODIs in which he has accounted for 5089 runs, including 18 hundreds.

Can he fire on all cylinders?

Charith Asalanka (Sri Lanka):

Asalanka is the new generation of Sri Lankan batters who are coming to the forefront after the departure of their big two—Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara.

  • Asalanka came to the fore alongside Pathum Nissanka in the 2021 T20 World Cup, but can they perform at that level in 50-over cricket? That needs to be seen.
  • He has played 35 ODIs, accounting for 1035 runs in the process.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Afghanistan):

Afghanistan’s opening batter-turned-wicketkeeper can also turn the game solely with the bat.

  • Gurbaz is an amazing batter who has the aura of Virender Sehwag about him. Basically, he is fearless and plays a lot in the ‘v.’
  • His cover drives are exquisite, and he is not afraid to play it ugly if it comes to that.
  • Gurbaz has played 22 matches, accounting for 797 runs with an average of 38.
  • He already has four hundreds and two fifties to his name.

Can he improve those numbers further in the Asia Cup?

Final Thoughts on Five Batters to Bet on in Asia Cup 2023

There will be an individual battle that will play out between Babar Azam and Virat Kohli. Even if that doesn’t happen, the fans will be battling it out in their names.

We have an interesting bunch of players. While we have three players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Babar Azam who will be vying for supremacy, we also have the likes of Charith Asalanka and Rahmanullah Gurbaz who would like to establish themselves on the world stage.

They can’t get a better platform than the Asia Cup.
