Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav picked for ODI's against Windies

Rishabh Pant

Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who has been called up in the ODI as well as T20 squad for the upcoming West Indies tour, on Thursday revealed that he was not at all demoralised when he was put in standby for the ongoing Champions Trophy, rather he was quite confident of getting a chance to represent his country anytime soon. Both players put in some really good performances in the Ranji Trophy last season and are seen as future stars of the team.

Rishabh Pant, who made his global debut against England in February, has been named in the India's squad for the West Indies tour, scheduled immediately after the ICC Champions Trophy, which ends on Sunday.

However, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah have not been included in the 15.




India will play five ODIs and one T20 global. CoA chief Vinod Rai had said that Kumble will continue for the tour, subject to his acceptance. The duo have been rewarded for their excellent showing on the domestic circuit, including impressive displays in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament. But a bigger surprise was lack of clarity on the status of Anil Kumble. It is pretty clear that Indian team management wanted Rohit to play this tourney desperately and then give him rest so that there isn't too much pressure on his body. While, Kuldeep made his mark during his lone Test appearance in Dharamshala against Australia.

Squad: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Dinesh Karthik.
