IND vs WI 2022: India to field full-strength squad for WI T20Is, kohli likely to be rested

IND vs WI 2022: The Indian selectors are planning to field a full-fledged Indian team for their upcoming T20I series against West Indies with all senior players of the white ball team returning to the T20I squad. However, there are chances for Virat Kohli to be rested for the five-match T20I series. The squad could even feature R Ashwin who has not featured in any international white-ball fixture for over seven months.

After resting all the senior players for West Indies ODIs that precede the T20Is, the selection committee will make sure of including all the T20I regulars in the West Indies T20I series, two of which would be played in the US. Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant, and Hardik Pandya will be included in the squad expected to be announced after the third and final T20I against England on July 10.

The decision of announcing different squads for the England & West Indies T20I series has been taken as India’s team management under Head Caoch Rahul Dravid and skipper Rohit wants to try out different combinations before finalizing the line-up for the World Cup 2022 to be held in Australia in October-November window & the selection committee under Chetan Sharma is also on the same page. Both the groups of management & selectors will select the players whom they want to pick or leave out for the World Cup – only after given sufficient opportunities to prove themselves.

Meanwhile, the absence of Kohli from the West Indies T20I squad doesn’t mean that he is out of the World Cup picture as he is very much involved in the plans of decision-makers for the T20 World Cup 2022. According to reports, he has requested the selectors, team management, and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to not consider him for the West Indies series.

The management & the selectors want to test Ashwin who was recalled for last year’s T20 World Cup in the UAE but since then he failed to feature in any International white ball fixture due to a variety of reasons, including fitness. However, after Dravid & Rohit took over the reins of the Indian team last November, Ashwin was told that his experience & expertise are a plan of their planning for the T20 World Cup 2022. It would be a surprise for all if he doesn’t get a recall to the T20I set up for the West Indies T20I series.
