Another twist comes in late as, Shikhar Dhawan who a few days ago got injured, was operated has now been under scanner & is likely to miss the T20I series against West Indies starting 6 December. While the Wicket-Keeper Batsman Sanju Samson who a few days ago was snubbed from spot in the squad by ridiculous reasons is now all confirmed to replace Dhawan.
“Samson might be included in the squad as a replacement of Dhawan. Dhawan got operated on his knee, depending upon his medical status report, the final call will be taken,” a BCCI Source told ANI.
India’s squad for 3 T20Is: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (WK), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sanju Samson
There is also a possibility that Rishab Pant now might lose his place in favour of Sanju Samson if he fails to deliver in the first game or in the rest of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Games.
