Talking about the three-match T20Is, India will look forward to continuing their dominance in the shorter format of the game as well. Virat Kohli will be rested for the three-match game and in his absence, Rohit Sharma will be handling the reins of the team. Ahead of the first t20 match, Rohit addressed the press and also answered the most debatable question about MS Dhoni's exclusion from the T20 team. Rohit said, " Dhoni has been such a massive player for us, over the years. His experience in the middle will be missed but again Rishabh (Pant) and Dinesh (Karthik) have great opportunity to come and perform and show what they are capable of as well. It gives them an opportunity to express themselves." India Face T20 Test Sans Mahendra Singh Dhoni The Colossus, West Indies Seek Redemption.
