After the Asia Cup debacle, the Rohit Sharma-led side will want to push the reset button and get their combinations right with the 20-20 World Cup around the corner. The skipper of India at present will have an almost full squad at his disposal barring the absence of Ravindra Jadeja who is out of the 20-20 World Cup recovering from surgery and Mohammad Shami who is sidelined due to Covid.
