The Team India selectors led by MSK Prasad on Sunday (July 21) had announced three different squads for the upcoming bilateral series against Windies. Interestingly, following a dismal show at the ICC World Cup 2019, the selectors had backed all-rounder Kedar Jadhav in the 15-man ODI squad.

In the recently-held World Cup, Jadhav had featured in five matches. But, he managed 80 runs at an average of 40 with his strike-rate reading as 80.81.

Furthermore, the 34-year-old batting all-rounder Jadhav had bowled sparsely against Australia and Windies in Manchester. On June 22, 2019, Jadhav had managed to score 52 at the Southampton.
