Two wickets in the team announced on Friday are Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik. Australia will play three T20 matches from November 21. After that, the four Test matches and three one-day matches have to be played.
Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not been included in the squad selected for the T20 World Cup in India with the West Indies. In the team’s announcement on Friday (October 26, 2018), Dhoni has not been given the place in the Indian team’s Twenty20 match against the West Indies at home and against Australia. In another big decision, captain Virat Kohli has been rested in T20 matches against the West Indies. Rohit Sharma will captain his team instead. These decisions were taken at a meeting of the selection committee headed by MSK Prasad on Friday late evening.
The committee said that Dhoni has been given “rest” and India is now focusing on replacing the other wicketkeeper. India won the T20 World Cup in 2007 under Dhoni’s captaincy. But when it was asked if Dhoni’s T20 career has ended, Prasad said, “Not now.” Prasad said, “We want to test other keepers for the place of another wicketkeeper.” There are two wicketkeepers in the team announced by Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik. Australia will play three T20 matches from November 21. After that, the four Test matches and three one-day matches have to be played. Let us know here that former captain Dhoni, who has played 93 T20 matches for India, without them, the Indian team has only played 11 times for the T-20 playing field. During this time, he also won the World Cup in T-20 in 2007.
