India vs West Indies: Selectors to pick India T20I, ODI squads on November 21 in Kolkata
The MSK Prasad-led selection committee will announce the squads on Thursday (November 21) for the three-match T20I and ODI series against the visitors
Kolkata: Ahead of the India-Bangladesh day/night Test in Kolkata, the BCCI selectors will meet here to pick the T20I and ODI squads for the next month’s series against the West Indies.
The MSK Prasad-led selection committee will announce the squads on Thursday (November 21) for the three-match T20I and ODI series against the visitors.
India and Bangladesh will play their maiden day/night Test at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens from Friday (November 22). India have a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series after winning in Indore.
After the Kolkata Test, India will host the West Indies. The first T20I is in Mumbai on December 6.
It will be interesting to see whether the selectors recall Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the limited-overs series. Dhoni has not played for India since the ICC World Cup 2019 in England where the team lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals.
Also, there is speculation that Rohit Sharma could be rested and Mayank Agarwal could be tried as an opener in ODIs.
This selection meeting is likely to be the last for the Prasad-led panel. With the BCCI AGM scheduled for December 1, a new committee will most likely be announced on that day.
