Pant, Kuldeep included for Windies tour; Rohit, Bumrah rested

Rishabh Pant Kuldeep Yadav included in India’s squad for West Indies Rohit Sharma misses out

"Hope I will perform well in the tour", added Pant, who has played just one T20 worldwide for India.

Opener Rohit Sharma and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, have been given rest from the Caribbean tour to avoid fatigue.

"The administrative staff of the Indian Cricket Team will continue for the tour of West Indies", the BCCI release said. It had emerged that Virat Kohli and a few senior players were not happy with Kumble, which has necessitated the process.

The Team India cricketers have already made their way through to the semifinal of the Champions Trophy, defeating the likes of Pakistan and South Africa.

Paceman Jasprit Bumrah is another member of the Champions Trophy squad, who has been rested for the short tour comprising five ODIs and a T20 global.

Pant seemed to have been rewarded for his excellent showing on the domestic circuit, including impressive displays in the India n Premier League (IPL) tournament.




Though the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is mum over Kumble's future with the team, the coach is likely to accompany the team for this brief tour.

"I am very happy that I am selected for West Indies tour".

Both Pant and Kuldeep made their worldwide debuts earlier this year but neither has played in one-day internationals so far.

The other names are usual suspects, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami are the three seamers while R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will lead the spin attack.

Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, R Jadja, Mohd.
