The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the T20 squad for the West Indies tour. Virat Kohli has been dropped from the T20 team. At the same time, KL Rahul has returned to the team. Rahul was out of the team due to injury.

Apart from this, Ravichandran Ashwin has also returned to the T20 team. Ashwin has not played a T20 match since the home T20I series against New Zealand last year. The Indian team will be on the West Indies tour from July 22 to August 7. During this, the team will play three ODIs and five T20s.
