Fans Claim BCCI Playing Musical Chair As Shikhar Dhawan Named New Skipper For West Indies ODIs

A day after losing the Edgbaston Test, BCCI announced the squad for the ODI leg of the West Indies series. Team India will play three matches which will be followed by a five-match T20I series. Nonetheless, the Indian fans were not pleased when they realized that the squad doesn’t have the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. The squad also sees a new skipper in Shikhar Dhawan. This means BCCI have named their fifth skipper in white ball game since Kohli’s departure in December after which Rohit Sharma was named his successor. Nevertheless, too much chop-and-change has made fans realise that they are in for a musical chair.

The BCCI selection committee has named a 16-man squad for the upcoming three-match ODI series against West Indies starting later this month. Shikhar Dhawan will lead the squad with allrounder Ravindra Jadeja named his deputy even as a host of senior players have been rested.

The India squad is currently gearing up for a three-match T20I series against England which will be followed by three ODIs.

India’s England tour will get over by July 17 while the West Indies tour starts five days later from July 22. All three ODIs will be played at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad.
