Trinidad: After leading India to 14 consecutive T20I series win, Rohit Sharma is all ready to commence a novel project. His side is gearing up to fight West Indies in the 3-match T20 series win and Rohit will resume the role of leadership.
In the recently concluded ODI series, Shikhar Dhawan has got the Men in Blue 3-0 blistering win. The visitors would eye on ending the tour on high with another series trophy on their side in plane back to homeland.
This series can also be called as the start of different days for Virat Kohli as he is not part of squad. When the organizers have called it ‘rested’, others, like Kapil Dev, have chosen to call it being ‘dropped.’
Kohli hasn’t been able to put up a significant performance for a long time and his inclusion in the World Cup squad is still in questions.
Dinesh Karthik has carved-out a place for himself for the third consecutive series, after Ireland and England tour. His performance in the series can be a deciding factor for his inclusion in squad.
On the other hand, Nicholas Pooran will try to “come out and entertain the crowd” when they walk at Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba.
