Since the ICC World Cup in England, the Men in Blues have won three consecutive series – West Indies, South Africa, and Bangladesh. The Bangla Tigers had India in a tricky situation winning the first match, but the host bounced back to win the series 2-1.
Virat Kohli & Co will hope to continue their winning as they prepare for the mega event. India will play West Indies at home in three T20Is starting from December 6 followed by the same number of ODIs. With most of the side looking settled, the management is likely to tinked with three-four spots to see the best available options before finalising.
We at Cricket Addictor will take a look at three cricketers who can lose their place in the squad for the upcoming series against West Indies:
The young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been the most debated topic in Indian cricket in the last few months. He has been at the hot seat ever since the World Cup when MS Dhoni went to a sabbatical. But the promising cricketer has failed to live upto the expectation.
Fitting onto the footsteps of Dhoni is not an easy job and Pant is feeling all the pressure from outside which has impacted his game. The young cricketer has lost his natural flow and the wicket-keeping has also hit an all-time low. While the management and skipper have stood by him, nothing seems to work right for Rishabh Pant.
The selectors might ponder giving Pant a break from the upcoming series against West Indies. With Sanju Samson waiting in the wings, it will be a perfect opportunity for the management to take a look at different options on offer.
Pant needs to back to his basics and put his head down and concentrate on what he does the best to regain his form back before making another comeback to Team India.
