Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday announced the Team India’s squad for the five-match T20I series, which will begin on 12th March in the New Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera Ahmedabad.
The squad saw the likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Rahul Tewatia, and Ishan Kishan earning their maiden call-up. While mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy was also named among the 19-member squad.
