Rishab Pant in, Dinesh Karthik out for India vs Windies ODI Series
The Indian think-tank have been rigorously looking for the number 4 batter. Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey and Ambati Rayudu were the primary picks. The Asia Cup was the dress rehearsal for the 2 drop position and this for the 2019 World Cup. Karthik scored 146 runs in 6 games at 48.66. While the numbers don’t seem bad, Karthik’s application at the batting crease was disappointing. Ambati Rayudu and Manish Pandey have been selected for the first two games. Rayudu played all the games at the Asia Cup, scored 2 fifties and is likely to start against the Windies.
Rishab Pant, on the other hand, gets a look and will probably make his ODI debut. The powerful left-handed batsman will take Kedhar Jadhav’s spot. MS Dhoni will be the man behind the stumps. Virat Kohli after missing the Asia Cup will get back to leading the squad. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been rested while Khaleel Ahmed and Ravindra Jadeja have been retained.
ODI Squad for the first two India vs Windies ODIs
Virat Kohli(c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, K Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Lokesh Rahul
