​”Rishabh Pant & Kuldeep Yadav got maiden ODI call up for West Indies Tour”

BCCI announces 15 member squad for West Indies Tour where India will play 5 ODI & 1 T20. As Rohit Sharma & Jasprit Bumrah are rested in place of these two Rishabh Pant & Kuldeep Yadav included. This is the only change in the squad of champions Trophy.

This is the first time that young Rishabh Pant & Kuldeep Yadav included in ODI team. Pant made his T20I debut against England where Kuldeep made his Test debut against Australia at Dharamshala where he took 4 wickets in the first inning.

Pant got a gift of his form from last one year in domestic as well as in IPL. Also, he captained the Delhi side in Vijay Hazare Trophy. After a good performance in debut Test, Kuldeep continues his form in IPL also. It will be interesting that will Pant got a chance to open the inning with Dhawan in place of Rohit or he will play in the middle. Because of Ajinkya Rahane already in the squad. As Ashwin & Jadeja an experience spin combo already there so it might be difficult for Kuldeep to get a place in playing 11. Amit Mishra took 15 wickets against New Zealand in ODI series & Chahal took 8 wickets against England in T20 series even though they didn’t get a place in 15 member squad.

Squad: Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan,  Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant.
