The India squad for West Indies T20is is all set to be announced on July 11. In such a scenario where there are questions on some senior Indian players regarding their form, it will be interesting to see if they opt for rest or play in the T20I series against West Indies.

India‘s ODI squad for the West Indies series has already been announced wherein Shikhar Dhawan will captain the team. A lot of young players have been included in the ODI squad whereas senior Indian players have been rested for the series. Ravindra Jadeja will be the vice-captain of team India in the ODI series against the West Indies.

IND vs WI: India Squad For West Indies T20Is (Predicted)

The main concern for the selectors will be around former India captain Virat Kohli, whose bad days don’t seem to be ending for the last couple of years. Virat has not scored a century in international cricket for the last 76 innings and now the pressure is really high upon him and the team management as the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is not even 100 days away.

As per some media reports, Virat had also asked for a rest in the T20I series against West Indies but with fans and former Indian cricketers waging a war of words against the former Indian captain, it will be very difficult for the selectors to sideline him from the T20I squad, knowing that he won’t be a part of the ODI squad.

India will be playing a three-match ODI series against West Indies in Trinidad, the first game of which will commence on July 22. After the conclusion of the 3-match ODI series, the Men in Blue will take on the Caribbean in a five-match T20I series which will begin on August 01.

India Squad for WI T20Is (Predicted): Rohit Sharma (Captain), Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda,  Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dinesh Karthik, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Avesh Khan, Umran Malik, Ravi Bishnoi.

India’s squad for WI ODIs: Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill,  Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan (wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (vice-captain), Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammad Siraj, Arshdeep Singh.
