New Delhi. Team India is ahead 2-1 in the T20 series against West Indies. The remaining 2 matches are to be played on 6 and 7 August. After this the team has to go on a tour of Zimbabwe. But only ODI matches are to be held there. Young players have been given a chance for the series. Now the remaining 2 T20 matches against the Windies are going to be very important, because the T20 Asia Cup is to be held in the UAE from October 27. For this the team is to be selected on August 8. Players who perform well in the Asia Cup can also get a place in the team for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October-November.
First thing Shreyas Iyer. He got a chance in the first three matches of the series against West Indies. But they failed miserably. His highest score was 24 runs. He could only score 33 runs at an average of 11. Now Sanju Samson can get his place in the remaining 2 matches. Samson has got a place in the team after KL Rahul withdrew due to injury.

Huda would also like to do amazing
Deepak Hooda did not get a chance in the first two matches of the series. In the third match, he landed and remained unbeaten on 10 runs. They are running in good form.

At the same time, Rishabh Pant has also not been able to show any special game in the first 3 matches. Has scored 71 runs with the biggest innings of 33 not out. In such a situation, they would like to gain momentum in the remaining match.
