Sanju Samson, Dube & Jaiswal excluded from IND vs ZIM squad, BCCI names replacements

The BCCI named the replacements for Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube for the IND vs ZIM series.

A few days after the announcement of the Team India squad for the IND vs ZIM series, the BCCI has come up with three necessary changes. Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube and Yashasvi Jaiswal, who were all part of the T20 World Cup winning squad, have been removed from the Zimbabwe tour, and in place, Sai Sudarshan, Jitesh Sharma and Harshit Rana have been included.

Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube & Yashasvi Jaiswal OUT

The reason? The World Cup victors are still stranded in Barbados due to Hurricane Beryl, the venue for the IND vs SA T20 World Cup final, and will not be able to make it in time for the series. In fact, team is yet to reach India. So, even when Samson, Dube and Yashasvi do reach India, they would be fatigued, hence the move. The BCCI also confirmed the same. Here is the full updated India squad for the IND vs ZIM series.

Team India Squad for IND vs ZIM

Shubman Gill (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Abhishek Sharma, Rinku Singh, Dhruv Jurel (WK), Riyan Parag, Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar, Tushar Deshpande, Sai Sudharsan, Jitesh Sharma (WK), Harshit Rana.
