India pick Pant, Yadav for WI tour

Rishabh Pant

The Virat Kohli-led India will leave directly for the Caribbean Islands after wrapping up their ongoing Champions Trophy campaign. Kumble is one of the candidates in contention, after the BCCI invited applications for the job amid reports that Virat Kohli and some senior players were unhappy with Kumble's methods.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today (June 15) announced a 15-man Indian squad for the limited overs tour to the West Indies. CoA chief Vinod Rai said this week that Kumble will continue for the Windies tour, subject to his acceptance.

Rishabh Pant has received his maiden ODI Team call for the tour of West Indies where Dinesh Karthik and Kuldeep Yadav have also been picked.

Opening batsman Rohit Sharma and paceman Jasprit Bumrah will not travel after playing their part in the ICC Champions Trophy.

The other significant development is that Anil Kumble has agreed to go to the West Indies.

The 19-year-old Pant impressed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 for Delhi Daredevils. However, there is still no clarity regarding team head coach. The tournament will end on the 18th and they will fly to the West Indies after it.

With Rohit not there, Pant could be a choice for an opener but as has been the norm, Ajinkya Rahane will be the top contender to open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan. While, Kuldeep made his mark during his lone Test appearance in Dharamshala against Australia.

Fast bowlers Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami are the three seamers.
