After the Semi-Final defeat against New Zealand at Manchester, the Indian team is all set to return home. Everyone’s eyes are on the former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni as it is believed that he may announce his retirement soon.
Shortly after the conclusion of ICC World Cup 2019, the Indian team will head to West Indies for their scheduled tour where they will be playing three T20s, three One-Day Internationals and two Test matches against West Indies for which the team selection is yet to follow.
The National Selection Committee will meet in Mumbai on 17 or 18 July for the team selection for the tour. The big question remains is whether MS Dhoni will continue to be part of Team India’s white ball plans or head towards the next phase of life. If Dhoni decides to stay then he is expected to join the team on their West Indies tour. The tour will begin on 3 August.
It is also expected that skipper Virat Kohli will take a break from the short formats and will join the team for the Tests in Antigua and Jamaica, Rohit Sharma will lead the team in T20s and ODIs. It is also expected that the cricketers who have been playing non-stop cricket will also be rest.
