IND vs SL, Asia Cup Final: Washington Sundar called up as back-up for injured Axar Patel

NEW DELHI: India all-rounder Washington Sundar is set to join the India squad ahead of the Asia Cup final against Sri Lanka on Sunday. The 23-year-old Sundar has been picked as a replacement for Axar Patel, who experienced niggles during the Super Four encounter against Bangladesh, a match that India narrowly lost by six runs.
It raises the likelihood of Axar missing out on the final, which will be played at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
Sundar, who is part of India squad for the upcoming Asian Games, is currently attending a camp in Bengaluru.
He last played an ODI against New Zealand at home in January this year.
Axar scored a valiant 42 off 34 against Bangladesh in the inconsequential ‘Super 4’ match against Bangladesh, but it didn’t prove enough. He is an important all-rounder for India going into the World Cup, and the team management may not want to take any chances with his injury.
