Rahane wasn’t in the scheme of things for the one-day squad. It was last in January 2018 that he played an ODI on the tour of South Africa. He was later dropped from the squad and has not been in the frame to make a comeback.
Although he was tipped to be team India’s number four batsman last year by skipper Virat Kohli. Ambati Rayudu had replaced him in the squad for England tour but was himself replaced by Suresh Raina after he could not clear the yo-yo test.
As far as Shubman Gill is concerned, he was in the scheme of things and is in the waiting list. Chief selector MSK Prasad had talked about Gill after the squad announcement.
Also, there was no spot left as India recalled Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey. None of the regular batsmen took a rest and hence, there was no place for Gill. He will definitely be in the squad in the home season when few of the regulars will take rest.
He will remain in West Indies as Gill is a part of India A squad for the unofficial Tests against the hosts. He recently shone in the one-day series that India A won 4-1.
India tour of West Indies kicks off next month with Florida hosting he first two T20Is of the series. The action will return to Caribbean islands when Guyana will host 3rd T20I and 1st ODI of the series.
Later, India will play two more ODIs and two Test matches against the hosts.
West Indes have also announced their squad for the USA leg of the series. Carlos Brathwaite will take over the captaincy back in the shortest format of the game.
