Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rinku Singh: The new faces of India’s Tsquad for WI tour

India’s cricket team management is planning major changes to its T20I squad ahead of the highly anticipated India tour of West Indies 2023, set to commence on July 12. Young batsmen Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rinku Singh are the new faces of India’s Tsquad for WI tour .

 Yashasvi Jaiswal, being the opening batter for the Rajasthan Royals, had a stellar IPL 2023 season, scoring 625 runs in 14 matches at an average of 48.08 and a strike rate of 163.61. His notable century against the Mumbai Indians showcased his exceptional talent. Jaiswal’s impressive performances earned him a place in India’s Test squad as a reserve opener for the World Test Championship final against Australia.

Rinku Singh, Kolkata Knight Riders’ middle-order batter, had an impressive debut season in IPL 2023. He scored 474 runs in the 2023 edition, with an average of 59.25 and a strike rate of 149.53, including four fifties. In a thrilling match against Gujarat Titans, he hit five sixes in the last five balls bowled by Yash Dayal. Rinku and Yashasvi Jaiswal are expected to make their international debut on the West Indies tour and could also be part of the T20 World Cup 2024 squad.

 Furthermore, Mohit Sharma, who impressed with his performance in IPL 2023 by taking 27 wickets, is also in line for a return to the national team after a seven-year break. It is anticipated that Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj will be given a rest during the West Indies tour, creating an opportunity for Mohit to make his comeback.

 With the series encompassing Tests, ODIs, and T20Is, starting from July 12, it promises to be an exciting showcase of cricket in the Caribbean. The selectors will likely base their choices for the T20I team on the performances witnessed during the IPL, providing deserving players like Rinku, Mohit, and Yashasvi an opportunity to shine on the international stage. As the tour approaches, all eyes are on the new crop of talent that will don the Indian jersey and contribute to the team’s success.
