Rishabh Pant could come in as MSD’s cover

Rishabh Pant could come in as MSD’s cover

Rishabh Pant's impressive form with the bat for India in Test cricket has not gone unnoticed and he could well be rewarded with a limited-overs call up for the ODI series versus West Indies.

Skipper Virat Kohli's presence may be another key issue even though it's unlikely that he will be inclined to rest for the entire series. While MS Dhoni remains the first choice, Dinesh Karthik and Rishab Pant could be included as specialist batsmen. While Pandya had injured his lower back in the Asia Cup match against Pakistan to be ruled out of the tournament, Jadhav won India the title with an injured hamstring.

Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar have been rested for the first two ODIs while Kedar Jadhav is yet to recover from his injury. So we need to figure out the fast bowlers and that is the reason we have picked Shami. He has excelled in all formats, led from the front and India are No 1 side in all formats (only in Tests).

Egypt assistant coach provides update on Salah’s injury
Fortunately, Egypt assistant Hany Ramzy eased off fears of an injury after the game, insisting that it was not a big injury. Salah has now broken his mini-goal drought and fans have been thrilled with the way he did it.

Briefing the media persons here on Thursday, MSK Prasad, chairman of National selection committee, said Pant, who has been in the reckoning for ODIs after his explosive knocks in IPL and in the two Tests that he played so far, will also be the second wicketkeeper to veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He will be looked at as a potential third seamer option. In their absence, the team-management will have a chance to try out the likes of Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj and Khaleel Ahmed. Ravindra Jadeja is also expected to make it after his lion-hearted show as Axar Patel's replacement. The spin attack was retained, with Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal completing the trio. However, injuries to some players gave him an opportunity in the Asia Cup and he grabbed it with both the hands. He batted mainly at No. 4, but did not make own the position India have been seeking to fill ahead of the 2019 World Cup.

"It is no brainer who is our No 1 wicketkeeper". "In the search of second wicketkeeper, we have given opportunities to DK". In three T20Is, he has scored 32 runs in one innings out of the three T20Is he played for India.

Another interesting inclusion was of Mohammed Shami, who last played an ODI in September past year. "At an appropriate time, we can answer as and when he recovers from injury".
