After whitewashing them in the ODI series, India will be taking on West Indies in the three-match T20I series. The Men in Blue had last played a T20I series against New Zealand last year and had defeated them 3-0.
However, before the series began, India faced a blow as the side would be missing the services of Washington Sundar, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel.
Sundar sustained a left hamstring muscle strain while fielding in the third ODI and has been ruled out. Kuldeep Yadav would be replacing Sundar in the squad. As for Rahul, he also sustained an upper left hamstring strain while fielding in the 2nd ODI.
Talking about Axar, he recently tested positive for Covid-19 and has undergone the final stage of rehabilitation. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Deepak Hooda have replaced the two players in the Indian team.
