Saud will be facing off against Kohli during the World Cup

Saud will have the opportunity to closely observe Kohli's performance when Nepal faces India in the fifth match of the Asia Cup 2023. Kohli had been included in India's Test and ODI squads for their tour of the West Indies, but he was not selected for the T20I segment of the tour or the Ireland T20Is.

His return to competitive action is scheduled for India's opening game in the Asia Cup 2023 against Pakistan on September 2 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. Following this encounter, India will compete against Nepal on September 4.

If both the Men in Blue and Pakistan secure positions in the Super Fours stage, they are set to clash again on September 10 in Colombo. Should these arch-rivals proceed to face each other in the final, the showdown is slated to take place at the same venue on September 17.
