The source said, ‘Ganguly has sent names to the BCB only after seeing the availability of the players. Kohli, Shami, Dhawan, and Kuldeep will represent the team of Asia XI. It has been some time since the names have sent because the Bangladesh board needed a list of players from the BCCI to prepare the team.
Initially, there was some doubt as to which players would play in it because being part of the subcontinent. Pakistan players would also play in the team and at this time India-Pakistan relationship is not good.
