Pant has been in good form off late and hence he has got the opportunity to get in the squad. It was also because former India captain MS Dhoni has been in poor form and it is believed that it was Dhoni who asked Virat Kohli to give a chance to the next generation.
Meanwhile, both the captains also posed with the T20I trophy on the eve of the 1st T20I.
India will play three T20Is, followed by four Test matches starting December 6 and the series will end with three ODIs.
