Against a small team like Ireland, Team India has brought its B-team in a way, but if you look at the names, most of the players are big stars in the IPL where international cricketers play. Rahul Tripathi has been selected in Team India on the basis of his performance. While Sanju Samson has returned to Team India, a lot of questions were raised over his non-selection in the Africa series.
Apart from these, Suryakumar Yadav has also returned to Team India after injury. Because Rishabh Pant did not get rest in the series against South Africa and he was made the captain, now he has got rest. Because after this India has to play T20, Test and ODI series against England.
