The talented Shubman Gill gets another run as an opener in absence of skipper Rohit Sharma. He would look to score big and cement his place in the squad. Youngsters like Rahul Tripathi & Ruturaj Gaikwad have been rewarded for their brilliant IPL as well as domestic performances.
Allrounder Deepak Chahar also comes back after e huge injury break. Selectors would have an eye on his fitness and form with the World Cup knocking at the door. It’s a brilliant opportunity for him to show his all-round skills and push into the T20 squad for the World Cup.
Washington Sundar is another young man whose case is exactly the same to that of Deepak Chahar, returning after e long injury gap. Kuldeep looks to be the leader of the pack.
