India will continue their experimenting and this series is another chance for Virat Kohli and his men to settle the best team for the ICC’s mega event. But, India would have liked to have MS Dhoni in their T20 International set up. After the semi-final loss, MSD has not featured in any of the games for India in the blue jersey.

The experiment with Rishabh Pant hasn’t been working for Team India and now it might be right to say that Pant will be Dhoni’s successor in future. The selectors have picked Sanju Samson in the squad as Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the T20 squad for this series.

Here are the 5 Indian Players to watch out for in this series against West Indies

Sanju Samson – The wicket-keeper batsman has been selected in place of Shikhar Dhawan. He was also selected in the series against Bangladesh but he didn’t get one single game there. Sanju will be eyeing to cement his spot in this series against the Windies. He was too good in the domestic season and that’s why he has been rewarded by being called up in this T20 series. But, there will be some debateable questions before selecting Sanju. Where will Samson bat in this series? And the important one is, Can Pant be dropped out? The selectors and the team management have favored Pant in the Bangladesh series as well. Despite his flop show with the bat and behind the stumps, Pant was selected in this series too. Sanju should get a chance to showcase his talent. Otherwise, this won’t be a fair thing to the youngster.

Kuldeep Yadav – The chinaman will play the T20 International match after nine months. He last represented India in the T20 set up against New Zealand. He also had an ordinary 2019 season of the IPL where he picked up just 4 wickets in 9 matches and then he went to England for the 2019 world cup where he picked up only 6 wickets in 7 games. Now is a chance for Kuldeep to make a case for himself. This 3 match T20 series will be an ideal opportunity for him to get back in the wicket-taking groove. Kuldeep has also been selected in the 3 match One Day International series which will be played after this shortest format series.

Ravindra Jadeja – A genuine all-rounder who was ignored for the T20 series against Bangladesh but will now replace Krunal Pandya, who didn’t do that well against Bangladesh. This series will be a golden chance for Jaddu to cement his place in the T20 setup. But, Team India has multiple spinning options and his selection in the playing XI will depend on the combination that the team will go with. Even in this case, Jadeja’s batting abilities will make in the front runner for selection. His improvement in the batting has been seen and that’s why he has been promoted to number 6 in the longer version of the game. No one can forget his counter-attacking batting which drove India close to New Zealand’s total. In this series, Jaddu may play a pure batsman’s role or he might play as an all-rounder.

Mohd Shami – The pacer bowler has returned to the T20 International set up. He has been causing havoc with the red ball and will now look to replicate that form in the shortest format as well. Shami is also a prime contender of sealing the World T20 spot in Australia. He played his first T20 International game in 2014, but, till now he has played only 7 games for India in the shortest format. India is looking for another depth over bowler alongside Bumrah and there can’t be a good option for that other than Shami. His form in the ODI world cup was also good. He took a hat-trick against Afghanistan in that tournament. Shami will be watched closely along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is also making a comeback in the shortest format. This pair is expected to get rid of the top order early as West Indies will struggle against the pace of Bhuvi and Shami.

KL Rahul – The batting maestro is just 26 runs away from scoring 1000 T20 runs for India. He will be the seventh Indian to achieve this feat and if he does score those 1000 runs in Hyderabad on Friday, then, he will be the third-quickest batsman to score those many runs. KL Rahul will have to open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma, whose T20 form hasn’t been that consistent. The opening position will allow Rahul to take advantage of the fielding restrictions. He played well in the last match of the T20 International series against Bangladesh and before the start of this series, he has warmed up with his state team in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy which Karnataka won by 1 run. Rahul scored three 50 plus scores in that domestic tournament and has presented a strong case for himself. He is also in a good form and if he continues with the same, then, he will be the preferred choice as the opener against Australia in 2020 for the T20 World Cup.
