Team India captain Rohit Sharma has landed in West Indies for the upcoming five-match T20I series, which gets underway on July 29. He was accompanied by wicketkeeper-batters Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant. The series will get underway at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad.

Incidentally, Rohit, Karthik, and Rishabh were rested from the ongoing three-match ODI series against Nicholas Pooran and Co. after a gruelling tour of England. Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Virat Kohli were also rested from the series. While Hardik is yet to join the squad, Kohli and Bumrah will miss the T20I leg as well.

Both Rohit and Pant shared pics of their arrival in Trinidad. While Pant shared a picture from the plane saying, “Hello Trinidad” on his Instagram story, Rohit shared an image from the airport.
