The BCCI has announced the 18-man squad for the 5-match T20 series against West Indies. Former captain Virat Kohli has not got a place in this team.

In such a situation, both will be available for the playing XI only when they are fully fit. The BCCI itself has given this information. However, know which other players India has included against the Windies (WI vs IND) in this report.
Actually, the captaincy of the 5-match T20 series against West Indies (WI vs IND) will be done by the host Rohit Sharma. An 18-member team has been announced under his leadership. In which veteran players like Ashwin have returned. For this series as openers, BCCI has selected Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul along with captain Hitman.
However, if KL Rahul remains fit, then only then he will be part of the playing XI (WI vs IND). But, if this does not happen, then along with the captain in his place, Ishaan is going to be seen taking charge of the opening. Because recently KL has had surgery.
