India’s Predicted Squad For West Indies Series: Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja Likely to Return
India's Predicted Squad For West Indies Series: The big change for India would be the return of the newly-appointed captain Rohit Sharma and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.
Mumbai: After an embarrassing tour of South Africa where India lost the Test series and then was whitewashed in the ODIs, the side has now returned home and in a few days’ time – would host West Indies for a limited-overs series. There would be three ODIs and three T20Is played between the two sides.
With the series starting on February 6, the Indian board is likely to announce the squad soon. The big change for India would be the return of the newly-appointed captain Rohit Sharma and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. While the return of Rohit and Jadeja would bolster the side, Shikhar Dhawan is likely to make it to the squad after a decent tour of South Africa.

Eyes would once again be on ex-India captain Virat Kohli, who would be in search of the eluding century. Shreyas Iyer, who did not live up to expectations in South Africa, would like to get among the runs. It is likely that all-rounder Shardul Thakur gets a break after a grueling tour of South Africa. Also, with Jadeja coming back, Ravi Ashwin may be dropped. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj and Deepak Chahar would be the pacers in all probability.
While the rest of the squad remains as expected, it would be a good opportunity for the side to get back to winning ways.
The one-dayers will be played from February 6 to 12, followed by the T20Is from February 15 to 20.
India’s Squad For West Indies Series: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ishan Kishan, Washington Sundar, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj
