IND vs WI: India Playing 11 for the first T20I against West Indies Prediction
IND vs WI: BCCI on Tuesday (5th July) named the Indian squad for the five-match T20I series against West Indies. As expected there were no rooms for seniors and Hardik Pandya will continue leading the young team. Some new faces too were seen in the squad and few would likely be making their debut as well.
Shubman Gill no doubt will be there at the top as he has locked his spot in all three formats of the game for India. Ishan Kishan is there in the team as well but Yashasvi Jaiswal will likely be given the nod ahead of him as he has been exceptional in the IPL opening the innings.
Suryakumar Yadav is expected to retain their place at No.3 as he has been exceptional in whatever games they have played for India. At No.4 it is expected that Tilak Varma will make their debut for India as he has been one of the finest youngsters going world cricket.
Sanju Samson will be the keeper in the team and is expected to be slotted at No.5. Skipper Hardik Pandya is expected to play a crucial role with the ball as well at No.6 whereas Axar Patel will be the second all-rounder in the team.
Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan are likely to be the pace trio in the team whereas Ravi Bishnoi is expected to be the spinner in the team as he exhibited exceptional performances in IPL and domestic circuit.
