It is clear from the players who have got a place for the series against West Indies that the selectors are eyeing the Twenty-Twenty World Cup to be held next year. Veteran players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are being kept out since last year’s World Cup. Young players are getting a chance in their place. It is also almost decided that the command of the team will now remain in the hands of Hardik Pandya.
If we talk about Rituraj Gaikwad, then he does not get a chance, it also shows that Shubman Gill is the first choice in the opening for Team India. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored more than 600 runs in IPL this year along with Shubman Gill, will get a chance. Jaiswal’s debut in the T20 series is believed to be confirmed. Jasalwal has also got a place in the Test team.
Jitesh Sharma also did not get a chance
Punjab Kings player Jitesh Sharma has impressed a lot as a wicket-keeper batsman. Jitesh Sharma’s performance in two consecutive seasons has been excellent. But due to Sanju Samson getting a chance, he could not make it to the team.
Ravi Bishnoi has returned to Team India after a long time. Bishnoi, however, will face a tough challenge from Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. It is not going to be easy for Bishnoi to make a place in the playing XI.
