Rohit Sharma will be continuing his captaincy in this tour and will be leading team India on the tour of West Indies starting on 22nd July shortly after India finishes touring England, the former world cup champion.
Virat Kohli, the former captain, and Bumrah, the in-form bowler who has been spectacular, will not be included in the squad this time, whereas we will see Ashwin and KL Rahul return to the team.
Rohit Sharma will be showcasing his leadership once again with the likes of Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah missing out. Although this will make space for the returning KL Rahul, who has previously been spectacular for Team India and showed his batting prowess, he is returning from an injury after a month, and therefore his inclusion will be subject to his fitness. Ravichandran Ashwin, the veteran, has also earned his spot back in the team and we could see Yuzvendra Chahal, the leg spinner, missing out. News agency PTI reported that Kohli and Bumrah had both been rested for the series, although there was no mention of the same in the BCCI release and tweet.
