Indian cricketers KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav will be undergoing final assessment tests in order to decide whether they can travel to West Indies for the white-ball series.
Rahul recently had surgery in Germany and recovered in time to hit the nets ahead of the tour. However, his fitness levels are yet to be known.
As for Kuldeep, he was included in the 5-match T20I home series against South Africa but was unfortunately ruled out after sustaining a blow on his hands during a net practice session.
“Both KL and Kuldeep will have a fitness test this week. Their recovery is going really well and we hope they return to action. Kuldeep is already 80% match fit. For KL, it is a work in progress since he recently had a surgery.”
“He has begun practice and depending on the level of fitness, we will take a call,” a member of the selection committee was quoted as saying by InsideSport.
For the upcoming tour, Jasprit Bumrah and Virat Kohli have been rested. Rohit Sharma will lead the T20I side which will play five T20Is while Shikhar Dhawan leads the ODI team which will play 3 games.
