Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma are the designated openers for the series in the absence of KL Rahul

KL Rahul’s absence leaves India one spot vacant in the openers. Ishan Kishan is the designated backup opener. He is ready to get consent. He warmed the bench in the entire ODI series against West Indies. But it is the number 3 spot up for grabs. India’s Shreyas Iyer and Deepak Hooda are the two players fighting for this spot. Shreyas Iyer played well against West Indies, Hooda has been in great form in T20s.

Another area of ​​concern is the bowling department. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is set to lead the line. Although Harshal Patel is the second pacer, it is the third pacer that is the biggest headache. Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh are the two pacers available. But seeing this, Arashdeep is likely to agree.

India Playing XI 1st T20 vs West Indies: What will India’s combination be?

  • Ishan Kishan is sure to open with Rohit Sharma without any last minute changes.
  • The number 3 spot is a toss up between Shreyas Iyer and Deepak Hooda. Both have done well and it will be a call that the team management will have to take.
  • Suryakumar Yadav is confirmed for the No. 4 spot while Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya are at No. 5 and 6.
  • If Ravindra Jadeja does not recover in time, Dinesh Karthik is set to take the No.7 spot.
  • But the biggest headache will be Ashwin and Akshar. With Yuzvendra Chahal rested from the T20 series, India will have to decide whether to bring Ashwin or Kuldeep into the squad.
  • Ashwin has not played a T20 for India since the New Zealand series at home in November last year.
  • With 5 spinners in the squad, India will have to choose who to field.
  • Dinesh Karthik is unlikely to get a place if Jadeja is fit to play.
  • Simply put, the competition for number 7 is between Akshar Patel, Dinesh Karthik and Ravindra Jadeja.
  • While Akshar and Jadeja are all-rounders, Karthik will only play as a finisher and this will weaken India’s bowling attack.
  • If India decide to go with two frontline seamers, Hardik Pandya will have to bowl four overs to accommodate Karthik.
  • In the spin department, considering the West Indies pitch, it is likely that India will go with three spinners.
  • With Kuldeep Yadav going to play, only one of Ashwin and Akshar can play.

For other locations, India doesn’t need to tinker too much. Shreyas Iyer and Deepak Hooda will have to fight for the third spot. The five-match series will be crucial for both of them to impress the selectors for India’s T20 World Cup squad. Whoever impresses will be India’s designated backup to Virat Kohli. Although Deepak Hooda has brought in a part-time bowler, Iyer will have to play as a specialist batsman.

India squad for 5 T20Is: Rohit Sharma (captain), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, R Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Avesh Khan , Arshdeep Singh.
