The match will be played at Windsor Park in Dominica from July 12 to 16. The selection of playing eleven for this match can become a headache for captain Rohit Sharma.
Mukesh Kumar’s debut fixed
Mohammed Shami has been rested in the Test series against the West Indies. At the same time, Jasprit Bumrah is not already a part of the team due to injury. In such a situation, the debut of Mukesh Kumar is being considered fixed. Mukesh played for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023 after a great performance in domestic cricket. In his first IPL season, Mukesh impressed a lot with his strong bowling.
Who will replace Cheteshwar Pujara?
Senior batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has not been selected in the Test series against the West Indies. In such a situation, the biggest question is who will take his place in the team. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad both got a place in the Test team. In such a situation, one of these two players can be seen playing at number three.
Ishaan Kishan can debut
Ishaan Kishan is going with the Indian Test team as a backup wicketkeeper since KS Bharat’s debut. In such a situation, Ishaan Kishan can make his Test debut through the West Indies tour. Ishaan Kishan’s figures are very good in first class cricket. At the same time, Ishaan adopts an aggressive attitude in batting. In such a situation, they can also prove useful for the team.
Ishaan has played 48 first class matches in his career so far, in which he has scored 2985 runs. During this, 6 centuries have come out of his bat. In such a situation, it is believed that his test debut is certain.
