Indian squad added two new members for the Twenty20 matches against Caribbeans
Indian team appended two players for the Twenty20 matches against West Indies, scheduled to play at the end of this month. Stuart Binny and Amit Mishra are the two new names added in the fourteen men squad.
A series of two Twenty20 international matches will be played between India and West Indies at Central Broward Regional Park, Fort Lauderdale, USA. August 27 and 28 are the scheduled dates for the series.
All-rounder pacer Stuart Binny replaced Hardik Pandya and leg-spinner Amit Mishra replaced Pawan Negi from the squad as their performances in World Twenty20, 2016 at home-soil did not provide high aspirations to be added again in the team as Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina will be absent.
Binny, the right-handed all-rounder played 11 ODIs scoring 91 runs and plucked 13 wickets from the same number of matches for the team.
Negi, the left-arm all-rounder was always placed at the end as a substitute but his career took a turn as he is added in India squad to show his performances against West Indies.
