Subsequently, India will play three One Day Internationals against West Indies with the first match to be played on August 8. The Indian team also will play two Test match series which will part of the Test championship for the 2019-21 cycle. We take a look at India’s probable 15-man squad for the tour of West Indies.
It was earlier reported that Virat Kohli would be rested for the tour. However, latest reports suggest otherwise. MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah are expected to be rested from Carribean tour.
Here is India’s probable 15-man squad for the tour of West Indies.
Rohit Sharma had a dream World Cup as he scored 648 runs in the tournament. The right-hander was at his best as he scored five centuries in the World Cup, which is the most for any batsman in a single edition of the event. Kohli is expected to be rested and thus Rohit Sharma will lead the team in the 50-overs format. Sharma will like to continue his good form going and he has done a fine job in the leadership role of the team.
