India T20I Squad announced for West Indies series: No Virat Kohli, Ashwin to return

KL Rahul recently underwent surgery. He was named in the squad but his inclusion solely depends upon his availability and fitness.

Post the England tour, the Indian team will be touring West Indies. On the India tour of West Indies 2022, a total of 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is will be played. The All India Senior Selection Committee named the squad for the ODIs recently. Now, they’ve also released the T20I squad. As there were already speculations, Virat Kohli will not be playing. India’s seasoned pacer Jasprit Bumrah is rested from the West Indies tour. Check out the announced India T20I Squad for the West Indies series.

KL Rahul who recently following a groin injury underwent surgery is also included in the squad. In addition, Kuldeep Yadav who was hit on his right hand in a net practice session was also included in the squad. However, both of their inclusion depends on fitness.

Ravichandran Ashwin was included in the Indian squad after quite some time. Yuzvendra Chahal who recently earned a place in the Indian team again misses a berth in WI T20Is.
