BCCI has announced an 18-member squad for the upcoming T20Is against Windies and Australia and Shreyas Iyer, Krunal Pandya and Washington Sundar has been included in the squad. Unfortunately, Prithvi Shaw misses out after a good show in the Tests against Windies recently. But the big talking point in days to come will be the exclusion of MS Dhoni. Is this a the end of the road for the former Indian captain? Virat Kohli would be leading the side. Shahbaz Nadeem also finds a spot in the T20Is against Windies but misses the flight to Australia. Kohli has been rested for the T20Is against Windies but he will be there leading the side in Australia in the T20Is.
