India’s squad for ODI series vs WI

Rohit Sharma (Capt), KL Rahul (vc), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shikhar, Virat Kohli, Surya Kumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (wk), D Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Y Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohd. Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan

So, they have got Deepak Hooda now in place of Venkatesh Iyer to fill that spot?

Bishnoi, Gaikwad, Hooda, Sundar, Kuldeep are good selection. There was no way we were going to get rid of top 3. Rohit can't be dropped as he is captain. Rahul cannot be dropped as he is vice captian. Kohli after all the drama won't be rested/dropped and Dhawan (in odis) still keeps performing so cannot give reason to drop him from only format he plays. Should have dropped bhuvi though. Looks like they have moved away from shami in limited overs now.

I think their T20 XI is pretty clear.

 

Rohit

KL

Kohli

SKY

Pant(wkt)

Venky Iyer

Axar Patel

Deepak Chahar

Bhuvi

Siraj

Yuzi

 

So, two trundlers in that team. Looks like they want a T20 whitewash too to drop Bhuvi. Someone should have reminded them of his performance in T20 World Cup.

 

ODIs is where it is a bit tricky on what 11 they go for.

 

Rohit

Dhawan

Kohli

Rahul

Pant(wkt)

Sundar ?

Shardul

D Chahar

Siraj

Yuzi

Prasidh

Chahal
Prasidh
 
 
 
 
 
 
If Ishaan Kishan opens with Dhawan, it will be a good combination as Dhawan is a grafter(needed) and Kishan goes for big shots from the word go. Ruturaj starts hitting only when he is well set. Yes, Rohit- Dhawan combo is a bit old-fashioned.
