Dropped From The West Indies T20I, But These 2 Batters Will Definitely Be Picked For T20I Series Against Ireland

When the T20I squad was announced on July 5, some former cricketers and fans were astonished as the names of KKR batter Rinku Singh and CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad were not there. Even with their dynamic performances, they have been overlooked for the five-match T20I series against West Indies.

However, according to a latest report, the former Gaikwad and Rinku Singh will definitely get a chance for the T20I series against Ireland. After completing their tour in the Caribbean, Men in Blue is set to visit Ireland. The matches are scheduled to take place on August 18, 20, and 23. After Ajit Agarkar has been appointed as the chairman, the selection committee has revealed a 15-member squad for the upcoming five-match T20I series against the West Indies.

Tilak Verma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Mukesh Kumar have got their first opportunity to represent the national team in T20I matches. On the other hand, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have once again been rested for the series.

A BCCI official has said that the players who are not considered for the West Indies tour will definitely get a grab in the upcoming Ireland tour.

While talking to Indian Express, a BCCI official said,”Rinku and other players who did well in the IPL will fly to Ireland as the selection committee doesn’t want to try everyone at one stage. There are seven players of the Indian ODI team who are not going to play T20 as those players are key for us going ahead as they will be playing in the Asia Cup in late August.”
