India have been playing young players in T20Is, but the experiment will end after the Ireland series.
Sourav Ganguly has confirmed the development. The ongoing series between India and South Africa is being played without Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul and a couple of more big names.
Even the squad for the Ireland series is filled with the newly inducted cricketers. Hardik Pandya is the team’s captain, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar as his deputy.
But with white-ball matches in England, the selectors and the team management will only include players who are likely to play in Australia.
“Rahul Dravid is planning to play a settled set of players. Probably from the England tour next month, we will start playing with players who are likely to represent the team in the ICC T20 World Cup,” Ganguly told TOI.
