Raising questions on the roadmap of the future.
Full strength squads picked for tour to West Indies. Ravindra Jadeja back in all 3 formats.Hardik Pandya rested. Would have loved to see Prithvi Shaw & Shubman Gill in T20 & ODI squads. Selecting Kedar Jadhav & Manish Pandey raises questions on the future roadmap. #INDvWI

MSK Prasad: Kedar Jadhav has done nothing wrong to be not selected in squad.
20 days ago, Kedar Jadhav was so bad that we has replaced by Dinesh Karthik for last 3 World Cup matches. So, probably Team India is not yet looking at 2023 World Cup. #INDvWI

Talking about the team selection, MS Dhoni has made himself unavailable for the series. The Chief Selector did not comment on Dhoni’s retirement and said that it was his personal decision. He further said that the team management is grooming youngsters for the further and which is why Rishabh Pant has been included in the scheme of things. Hardik Pandya has been rested for the entire series. Whereas, pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the shorter format of the game and has been picked up for the Test matches. The Windies tour will begin from August 3rd, 2019 in Florida.
