New Delhi; News Agency: In the West Indies series, Shubman Gill will be seen playing in Test and ODI formats. But, given the upcoming Asia Cup and World Cup, Gill may be rested during the T20I series against the West Indies to ease the workload. In Gill’s absence, Rituraj Gaikwad may get a chance to open the innings. (Shubman Gill)

After facing a humiliating defeat in the final of the World Test Championship against Australia, Team India will now begin a new era with a tour of the West Indies. The Indian team has to play 2 Tests, 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is on the West Indies tour. Hardik Pandya can once again be entrusted with the captaincy in the T20 series. At the same time, the selection committee will be inclined to include young players in the team for this series. Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal were expected to open the innings in this T20 series. (Shubman Gill)

Gaikwad performed brilliantly while opening for CSK in this year’s IPL. With big tournaments like Asia Cup, World Cup and series against Australia looming, BCCI is planning to rest some key players. Which will try to test the bench strength. The selection committee is likely to announce the selection of players for the West Indies series in the first week of July.

Ishaan Kishan can also be a contender

Apart from Rituraj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan is also a strong contender to open. In limited overs cricket, Ishan has played the role of opening batsman for the team many times. On the other hand, Rituraj has not got as many opportunities as the rest of the players. In this way, everyone is paying attention to whether he will be sent out this year as well or will be given a chance. Team India faced defeat in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup last year, ever since the selectors picked Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, K.L. Big players like Rahul have been shown the way out. Youngsters have been given an opportunity to play instead of them.
