The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the Indian squad for the upcoming 5- match T20I series against West Indies. The T20I series would start from 29th July and end on 7th August. It would be a crucial series for the Indian team to nail their preparation for T20 WC this year.

The BCCI has announced almost a full strength squad. Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah are the only two big names missing from the T20I squad against West Indies. Both of them have been rested for the T20I series. Yuzvendra Chahal too has been rested for upcoming T20I series against West Indies.

Exclusion of Sanju Samson and Umran Malik has also been surprising for various cricket fans. Cricket fans believe that Samson and Umran can be very handy for the bouncy pitches of Australia where T20 WC would be played this year.

Sanju Samson had a brilliant series against Ireland where he played a brilliant knock of 77 runs. Fans wanted selectors to give a complete series to Sanju. Umran Malik didn’t have a good outing in the 3 T20I matches he played, but his pace cam be an X Factor for T20 WC in Australia. Here are top twitter reactions of fans on exclusion of Samson and Umran:


KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav make comeback in T20I squad 

Indian opener KL Rahul and spinner Kuldeep Yadav have also been included in the T20I squad, given the condition they clear the fitness test. It would be a great chance for Arshdeep Singh to prove his worth as a T20 specialist. Rishabh Pant too would like to improve his T20I stats.

India squad: Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan, KL Rahul*, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav*, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh.
