Rohit Sharma to lead India for West Indies series

July 13, 2019

Rohit Sharma is likely to lead the Indian side in the next series against the West Indies. Virat Kohli is taking a long break after the ICC World Cup 2019.

India, who was knocked out of the World Cup in the semi-finals afteran 18-run defeat to New Zealand, will travel to West Indies for a full series of two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is. The India vs West Indies will begin from 3 August with the T20I series. The first two T20Is will be played at Florida.

Jasprit Bumrah might be rested from series as well. Both Kohli and Bumrah have been playing all three formats of the game for the past two years and the Indian cricket board wants to give them a break so they are fresh for the second half of the year. "They are important players for the team and the team management and selection committee wants them to stay fresh for the home season ahead. They have already had a hectic season in the past one year," said some sources in the BCCI to the media.

The selectors are likely to meet to choose the teams for the West Indies series after the Indian team returns from England. There is no news about M S Dhoni's availability for the West Indies tour. There were reports that he would announce his retirement after he played his last World Cup match in the semi-final. There are rumours that Dhoni may make an announcement after he returns to his hometown Ranchi after a few days.

The Indian team is yet to leave England after the semi final as the cricket board failed to arrange return tickets for the Indian side on time,. They will get it only on or after Sunday, when England and New Zealand will play in the World Cup final at Lord's.

While a few players are set to return to India, some others are expected to stay back or leave for different destinations for a break.
