Virat Kohli Requests not to be Considered for West Indies T20Is

Written by Abhishek Patil

A full-strength Indian team is likely to travel to the Caribbean for five T20Is, scheduled to get begin on July 29. The series will be played following the conclusion of 3 ODIs in which Shikhar Dhawan will lead the Men in Blue with all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja as his deputy.

The biggest development is about Virat Kohli who is likely to be rested for the Caribbean tour. The former Indian captain has requested the selectors, team management, and the BCCI to not consider him for the West Indies series.

The squad for the T20Is is likely to be announced after the third and final T20I against England on July 10 and will feature the likes of Rohit, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rishabh Pant. It has also been learned that the selectors might give a call-up to veteran Ravichandran Ashwin who hasn’t played a white-ball game for India in the last seven months. He returned for last year’s T20 World Cup in the UAE but has not had many chances due to several reasons including fitness.
