New Delhi: Team India is currently playing ODI series in the West Indies tour. After the first match washed by rain, he has won two matches and has achieved a 2-0 lead in the series. Now he will play the fourth ODI on Sunday with the West Indies. At the beginning of this tour, it was believed that Captain Virat Kohli would do some experiments in the team and give young players the chance, but Virat preferred to get along with the regular team. Prior to the third ODI, Virat Kohli had also indicated signs of change in the team. Clearly, the young Rishab Pant, who is considered to be MS Dhoni’s successor, may have been excited, but he could not get the chance. Now even before the fourth ODI, Virat has given such indication. It has to be seen whether he does it or not.

Virat Kohli expressed his happiness on the team’s spectacular performance in the third one-day and indicated some changes in the playing eleven. This gives the players hope to get an opportunity, who has not played in the current series against the West Indies so far. Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik and Mohammed Shami have not got a chance to play till now.

By the way, considering the 2019 World Cup preparations, it would be good for the team to use against the weaker team like the West Indies. There are only two matches left on the tour. In such a situation, they can be given a chance. In such a situation, wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who is considered to be MS Dhoni’s successor, can also get a place.

On the indication of a change in the playing XI, Kohli said, “We will certainly look into it (if we make any changes).” We have some players who have not got the chance to play for some time now.

By the way, Virat Kohli gave young spinner Kuldeep Yadav a chance to debut, and he also left his mark. Virat had also indicated to Rishabh Pant but he did not take them in the third ODI. It is worth mentioning that Pant is also a wicketkeeper and his style is aggressive. It is believed that after Dhoni’s retirement, he will fit perfectly in the team.
