IND vs WI: Ravichandran Ashwin to miss the West Indies Series?

According to a report by Cricbuzz, Ravichandran Ashwin will be unavailable for the limited-overs home series against West Indies as he will be undergoing treatment that will keep him out for three weeks. Even after a below-par performance during the three-match ODI series against South Africa recently, it is being understood that Ashwin is now a permanent member of the India squad across the three formats and is a crucial part of the national side’s vision for the T20 World Cup 2022 and the 2023 ODI World Cup. Both captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid have collectively agreed on the need of the senior off-spinner’s experience in the side.

According to some relevant reports, Rohit Sharma has completely recovered from his hamstring injury and will captain the Indian team in the upcoming limited-overs series against West Indies at home. However, India’s premier right-arm fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is very much likely to be rested for the white-ball matches against the Windies team to manage his workload after he played all the six games (3 Tests & 3 ODIs) in the recently concluded South Africa tour. The duo of Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are also likely to miss the West Indies home series as they are yet to recover from their respective injuries.
