made his debut against Zimbabwe in the year 2016. and alongside him, Tamil Nadu’s batter Shahrukh Khan is likely to

get his maiden for the three-match T20i series which is

starting from 16th of February in Kolkata. Just like Rishi Dhawan, Shahrukh played a crucial role in

helping his team in winning the domestic T20 cup Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, in the final he hit the

last ball six to seal the game for his team.

stronger for the national call-up after six years, although he is just in contention right now

Replacement of Hardik Pandya

India’s regular All-rounder Hardik Pandya isn’t fully fit and because his recovery is taking too much time, the Indian management

is looking at Rishi Dhawan to fill the void of an all-rounder in the absence of Hardik Pandya. Venkatesh Iyer another all-rounder from Madhya Pradesh is in line but management wants him to be a T20 specialist.

according to reports, Kuldeep Yadav might get his place back in the team, and Kings XI Punjab’s leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi might

get his maiden call for the Indian team for the T20i against West Indies.
