New Delhi: Rohit Sharma is fit and ready to captain the team. He will lead the team for the home limited overs series against West Indies. From February 6, a series of three ODIs and as many T20 matches will be played between India and West Indies. The left-arm wrist spinner has returned to the team. Yadav has not played any competitive cricket for the last six months. The Indian team is yearning to take wickets in the middle overs and has expressed confidence in Yadav. On the other hand, when it comes to batting, India has also given place to Baroda’s swashbuckling batsman Deepak Hooda in the ODI team. Along with this, leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi, who made his mark with Under-19 cricket, has also been selected in the Indian team for the first time for the T20 series. Questions were being raised on the role of spinners after their 0-3 clean sweep in the ODI series against South Africa. Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal and Jayant Yadav were able to take only three wickets even after bowling 59 overs in total. Coach Rahul Dravid also admitted that the team was left behind in the middle overs. Now the selectors have once again returned to the wrist spinners. This strategy worked well between 2017-2019. Kuldeep and Chahal’s pair ‘Kulcha’ was doing wonders. In the middle overs, both of them kept the batsmen under control. It was not easy for the batsmen to catch him. After the poor performance of the team in the T20 World Cup, the selectors and X-factor are busy in selecting the players. In the same effort, 21-year-old young leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has also been included in the team. Bishnoi, who first joined the team of Punjab Kings and this time Lucknow Supergiants, has taken 24 wickets in 23 matches in IPL. His economy has been 6.96. Rohit has recovered from a hamstring injury in December. Rohit suffered an injury a few days before India’s departure for South Africa. After this injury to Rohit, KL Rahul captained the team in the ODI series in South Africa. Rohit is now considered to be at the forefront of the successors of Virat Kohli in Test cricket. India has to play the next Test match against Sri Lanka in March. Hardik Pandya, who last played in the T20 World Cup, is still not fit. He doesn’t seem quite fit to play the seam bowling all-rounder. He told the selectors that he would like to see in the coming IPL if his body can take up the same workload again. Hardik has been made the captain of the new IPL franchise Ahmedabad. For this they have been given Rs 15 crore. The BCCI recently changed the venues for the series against West Indies. One-day matches will be played in Ahmedabad on February 6, 9 and 11 and T20 matches will be played in Kolkata on February 16, 18 and 20.
