WI vs IND: Five Indian players who should have been selected for the ODI series



Key Highlights

  • BCCI announces India’s squad against West Indies starting from July 22nd
  • Shikhar Dhawan will lead the team from the front whereas Ravindra Jadeja as Deputy
  • Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit’s Bumrah are amongst those who has been given rest

Board of cricket control in India has recently announced its Indian team squad against the Caribbeans. The match between West Indies Vs India will be a three-match affair. Veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan has been chosen to be leading the team from the front whereas former CSK captain, Ravindra Jadeja will be showcasing as the deputy for the Indian side.

In the squad against West Indies, there are some new faces too, that will be given chance in order to display their mettle and will include the likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson, Shubham Gill Arshdeep Singh and so on.

Whereas the senior players like Virat Kohli, Jasprit’s Bumrah, Rohit Sharma are yet again given rest during this series which will be along with the star batter Rishabh Pant.

Based on the post-BCCI had recently posted on Twitter, the Indian squad will remain as:

  • Shikhar Dhawan (C)
  • Ravindra Jadeja (VC)
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad
  • Shubham Gill
  • Shreyas Iyer
  • Ishan Kishan
  • Sanju Samson
  • Shardul Thakur
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Axar Patel
  • Avesh Khan
  • Prasidh Krishna
  • Mohammed Siraj
  • Arshdeep Singh


Now the question being most asked by the netizens online is that why the senior players have been given rest or excluded again and again? If one looks at the past, Virat Kohli the former skipper was made rested during the recently concluded SA series as well as the 2-match series against Ireland. He was even given rest during the Sri Lanka series which took place before the IPL this year.


The same was then noticed happening with current skipper Rohit Sharma who since his IPL hadn’t been included in the south Africa series and later on when time came for him to show some action. He got infected due to COVID just before the rescheduled fifth test against England. Well now he has been recovered and will be seen in the T20I and ODI match against England starting from Jun 7th.

Jasprit’s Bumrah is the third name which got most affected after the IPL. He was excluded against the South African series same as Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, and now the not needed rest given to him comes after his defeat as captain against England in the fifth test.

In the list comes Mohammed Shami who stands fourth. The right arm pacer had a good IPL playing for the Gujarat Titans team and was seen grabbing 20 wickets overall being one of the leading bowler. Even the T20 match against England starting from today, Mohammed Shami has been excluded without any reason. Mohammed Shami is a very mature player with calm personality and has very good swinging capabilities with the ball.

The fifth player who comes in the list is none other than the player from Gujarat Titans, Hardik Pandya. First of all, facing back injury took him approximately 1 year to make a comeback but when he did, he made sure, it was the best one.  He not only captained the Gujarat Titans team but also won the Tata IPL tournament with flying colours. He also received his maiden call for international cricket appointed as captain against 2-match series against Ireland, which he won by 2-1 straight.

Now the all-rounder finds no place in the West Indies vs India series which again poses questions like “why so much of change and happening”

Of course, change is needed, but at the expense of the in -form player looks not right at any point. We all know that this year’s IPL has added a lot of new talent in the Indian squad but neglecting the experience of senior players makes the team vulnerable especially for the upcoming world cup.
