IND vs WI Series: Team India's next mission will be West Indies. The Indian team will play two Tests, three ODIs and five T20 matches in the West Indies. Team India is yet to be announced for this series. It is believed that the team will be announced by June 26. Since the first Test matches will be played in the series, it is possible that the team for this will be announced first and after that the ODI and T20 team will be announced. Meanwhile, speculations are being made as to how Team India will be for this series. Now there is a possibility that there may be a return of a player in India's T20, who has been out of the T20 team for more than a year.

Ruturaj Gaikwad may return to T20 team

In IPL 2023, Ruturaj Gaikwad, playing for Chennai Super Kings, captained by MS Dhoni, has performed brilliantly. Not only this, he has made his debut for Team India, but after that he is out. Gaikwad played his first international match in July 2021, after which the last match was played on 26 June 2022. During this, nine T20 International matches came in his account. He batted in its eight innings and scored a total of 135 runs. His average is a little over 16, while the strike rate is above 123. He does not have any very unexpected record, but he has definitely scored a half-century. It is almost a year since he played his last match. The last match was played in June. If he joins the T20 team again, it will be more than a year.

T20 team can be made keeping in mind T20 World Cup 2024

For Ruturaj Gaikwad to join the team, it also seems possible because the BCCI has now started preparing for next year's World Cup in T20 International. For this, while another senior and aging players are being sidelined, opportunities are being given to the young and the players who have done well in the IPL. The team needs at least three to four such openers who are ready to play in any kind of conditions. Rutraj's number can come in this. His claim is also strong because he may not have become the highest run-scorer in IPL 2023, but he has played a big role in helping CSK win the title. He recently played a blistering inning of 79 off 50 balls. Earlier in the IPL qualifiers too, he had scored 60 off 44 balls.
