Meanwhile, according to a source from Cricbuzz, it has been learnt that Team India will be playing 10 game series in West Indies from July to August 2023. India will play two Tests and after which, they will play three ODIs and five T20Is.

The fans are indeed confused as to why the team is playing so many T20Is when the ODI World Cup is slated to be held later this year. After locking horns with the West Indies cricket team, India will jet off to the Ireland cricket team to play the three-match T20I series.

Earlier, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) made its stance quite clear about not letting Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli take part in the T20I series. As things stand, Hardik Pandya is the T20I captain.

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been instructed to play only Tests and ODIs, keeping the WTC Final and the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 in mind.
