The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday, announced 17 member India squad for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh. There are multiple changes in the squad such as; star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out for the tour level ODIs, with Shahbaz Ahmed coming in as his replacement. Yash Dayal, the left-arm medium-fast is out of the series, with Kuldeep Sen being picked up as his replacement.
Dayal was suffering with a lower back issue and was hence ruled out of the series while Jadeja hasn’t yet recovered from his knee injury and will continue to be under the supervision of the BCCI medical unit.
Kuldeep and Shahbaz, the two replacements, were initially named in the squad for the 3-match ODI series vs New Zealand as a part of India’s tour to New Zealand. As they have now been picked for the Bangladesh tour, they were pulled out of the ODI assignment against Kiwi. India won three-match T20Is against NZ under the leadership of Hardik Pandya. Now ODIs is scheduled to start on 25th November in Auckland.
Here, it’s pertinent to write that the BCCI hasn’t any replacement for the duo in India’s ODI squad which is currently in New Zealand.
