The Indian team selection committee will now be in Mumbai in the afternoon on Sunday. The meeting scheduled to be held on Friday due to changes in the rules regarding the meeting and the fitness report of some players, till Saturday evening, was avoided. On the West Indies tour, India has to play 3 ODIs, 3 T20s and 2 Test matches. Let us now say that from now on the head of the selection committee headed by the Indian cricket team will be elected. The BCCI’s Administrators’ Committee (CoA) gave the order on Thursday. So far, the BCCI general secretary chaired the meeting of the selection committee. This is also one of the reasons behind the selection committee’s meeting.
Meanwhile, former captain MS Dhoni returned to India on Thursday. It is believed that Team India will be announced after discussing Dhoni’s future. There is speculation that there may be several changes in Team India going for the ODI and T20 on the West Indies tour. There are many other big players like Virat Kohli, Jaspreet Bumrah, Rohit Sharma, who are likely to be rested. Opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan is injured, he is rarely found anywhere. Kedar Jadhav and Dinesh Karthik can also be ignored because these two teams are not fit in India’s future plans.
If Virat is rested then Rohit can be given the captaincy of Team India for limited overs. If Rohit is given rest, Virat will lead the team. Fast bowler Navdeep Saini and Khalil Ahmed are expected to get a place in the team. The responsibility of wicketkeeping will be on the shoulders of Rishabh Pant. MS Dhoni can be given the responsibility of Pant’s guide.
The Indian team’s tour of West Indies starts on August 3. It will be played in three T20s, three ODIs, and two Test matches. The tour will begin with the T-20 series, followed by one-day series starting August 8. The first test starts on August 22, while the second Test will be played on August 30.
