Rishabh Pant has been named as the vice-captain for both T20I and ODI series.
Youngsters Kuldeep Sen and Umran Malik have also been given opportunities to showcase their talents.
The selectors have ignored Ruturaj Gaikwad, Prasidh Krishna and Venkatesh Iyer who were previously part of the Indian squads.
Rishabh Pant was tried as an opener before the T20 World Cup, but the left-hander did not show much promise, which gives an opportunity to the likes of Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson to shine at the top.
Shubman Gill will be one of the players to watch out for in this series, expect him to pile up the runs on this tour.
India will be looking to bounce back after the nightmare in the Semi-Finals against England, it’s a good opportunity for the youngster to stand up and cement their spot in the XI.
