Varun Aaron (left) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will need to be in similar sync while bowling in tandem during the tournament.
Left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan will hope to continue his glorious touch with the bat at home in his debut year in 2013.
Virat Kohli will be the fulcrum of India's performance in the tournament. As the captain of the side, he will hope to lead from the front.
Asia Cup provides Cheteshwar Pujara an opportunity to stretch beyond limits and prove his mettle in the shorter format of the game as well.
India's fielding, which has been on the rise in the last few years, will also be a highlight during the tournament.
