The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently announced the Test and the ODI squad for the upcoming Test series against West Indies. But many are still awaiting the T20I team. The governing body is likely to name the team soon. 

And as per the reports in the Times of India (TOI), it is learned that Rinku Singh is the prime candidate to make it into the T20 team. The BCCI since the last T20 World Cup has been providing opportunities to quite a few youngsters under the leadership of Hardik Pandya.

The reports also suggested that Umesh Yadav was not dropped from the team and is rather injured, which is the main reason he was not picked for the Test team. The reports also suggested that doors are not closed for Cheteshwar Pujara and that if he performs well in the domestic circuit he might get a chance back. The batter will now be a part of the Duleep Trophy and if he manages to perform well, he can eye a comeback.
