West Indies announce squads for India series
Batsman Shai Hope and fast bowler Alzarri Joseph have been dropped from the squad which played the recently concluded T20 series against Afghanistan. The defending champions of the shorter version of cricket were defeated by Afghanistan and that forced the selectors to make these two changes before the T20 series against India.
On the other hand, Fabian Allen, who could not continue playing the series against Afghanistan after picking up a knee injury in the first match, has made a comeback to the side after recovering from the injury. Another injured cricketer Denesh Ramdin who was having an issue with hamstring also passed the fitness test.
Meanwhile, the selectors did not make any change from the ODI squad that crunched the Afghanist 3-0 in the last series in Lucknow.
T20 Squad: Kieron Pollard (c), Fabian Allen, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Brandon King, Evin Lewis, Khary Pierre, Nicholas Pooran, Denesh Ramdin, Sherfane Rutherford, Lendl Simmons, Keserick Williams, Hayden Walsh Jr.
