Chetan Sharma-led selection committee has announced the T20I squad for the upcoming five-match series against the West Indies. While Rohit Sharma will lead the side, Virat Kohli was not named in the 18-member squad.
The absence of Kohli was not liked by the fans, as the veteran batter is going through a rough patch with the bat. He had a disappointing outing in the Indian Premier League 2022 and failed to make a mark in the rescheduled fifth Test and the T20I series against England.
Here’s how the fans reacted to Kohli’s absence
Hardik Pandya will also return to the T20I squad after being rested for ODIs. Umran Malik and Sanju Samson were not considered for the series. The T20I series begins on July 29 with the first match at Trinidad.
