Shikhar Dhawan returns to the Indian team for the third ODI against the West Indies

Shikhar Dhawan has returned to the team against the third ODI of West Indies. In the absence of the left-hander, the team management started with Ishan Kishan in the first game and flamboyant Rishabh Pant in the second. But now, Suryakumar Yadav will play along with pant in the middle. Rishabh has been a top scorer so far and would most likely remain in the team for longer time. Now that the batsman is back, the Indian team may be forced to make some changes to their winning combination in the third and final ODI against West Indies. Former Test captain Virat Kohli will continue to bat in the middle order along with Vice-captain KL Rahul. Virat Kohli will try to score his 71st century in this match.

Most likely, Deepak Hooda will have to sit down to make room for the left-handed batsman i.e. Shikhar Dhawan. For your information, let us tell you that Deepak Hooda is a young player living in Rohtak, a small town in Haryana. In the white ball cricket that makes him a threat is his explosive style of playing with immense calm and composed ability to reign when needed especially in the longest formats of any game. Recently, the player had expressed his desire to play under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Deepak is big time for the CSK team and he has a deep desire to play for the team. The Indian team management should take the risk of making some changes and giving opportunities to new players. So either young leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi or Kuldeep Yadav, who is making a comeback from an injury, it is more likely in such cases that the younger and less experienced player has a tendency to perform in order to stay in the team.

On the other hand, Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal also had to make sacrifices to make room for their teammates. Avesh Khan’s name is also in the queue that may play in the third ODI to showcase his skills or else Mohammad Siraj will be given a chance. Prasidh Krishna and Shardul Thakur are unlikely to be dropped as performed well with their bowling. Prasidh, was seen fetching 4 wickets in the second game against the WI.

Rohit Sharma (Captain), Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, Ruturaj Gaikwad,  Surya Kumar Yadav, Shikhar Dhawan, Ishan Kishan (WK), Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar, Deepak Hooda, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rishabh Pant (WK), Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Shardul Thakur,  Avesh Khan, Mohd.
