India’s power-packed T20I squad for the upcoming Afghanistan series

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli had not played in a T20 international since more than a year ago. They are going to return to the shorter form for a three-match series against Afghanistan. This will increase the chances of participating in the next T20 World Cup in June. The last time Rohit and Virat participated in the shortest format was during India’s quarterfinal loss in the T20 World Cup in Australia in November 2022.

During Hardik’s absence, Suryakumar managed the side in the three games played in South Africa in December as well as the five-match series conducted at home against Australia. Before selecting the squad, chief selector Ajit Agarkar traveled to South Africa for the test matches. The selection committee has also given all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja a break. The selectors decided on Shivam Dube since Pandya is still healing from his injury. So, as per the BCCI, the squad set to face Afghanistan is:

Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar.
