Pant Left Out Of Limited Overs Squads
Rishabh Pant has been left out of the limited overs squads and only features in the test squad. This has come after the left-hander continuously failed to capitalise on loads of opportunities given to him. He averages just 26 and 20 in the ODI and T20I formats respectively.
KL RAHUL BACK IN TEST SQUAD
Another big news is the return of KL Rahul in the test squad . His test career took a toll after the last tour of Australia where he managed to score just 57 runs in 5 innings. He has also been nominated as the vice-captain and wicket-keeper in the limited overs sides.
OTHER INTERESTING PICKS
There are few interesting calls made by the selection committee.
1) Siraj and Saini’s inclusion in the test side.
2) Varun Chakravarthy picked in T20 side.
3) Mayank Agarwal in T20 side.
Four additional bowlers – Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kartik Tyagi, Ishan Porel and T. Natarajan – will travel with the Indian Team.
