India squad for Zimbabwe series and West Indies tour to be announced by BCCI

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selectors will hold a meeting on Monday to announce the squad for the upcoming Zimbabwe series and the West Indies tour. India are set to play three ODIs and three T20s against the African nation from June 11-22, and a four-match Test series against West Indies in July.

Stars like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan may not feature during the Zimbabwe series. Hence, young guns like Shreyas Iyer, Karun Nair and Krunal Pandya might get a chance to represent India, giving them a wonderful opportunity to shine and impress the national selectors.

However, it is not yet confirmed if India captain, MS Dhoni will be available for the Zimbabwe series. If Dhoni does not feature in the squad, Ajinkya Rahane, who also captained India in their last tour of Zimbabwe, will most likely be handed the skipper's role once again.After IPL 2016 gets over, senior cricketers will have more than a month to rest, so that they are fresh for the Test series against West Indies, where Virat Kohli will lead the team.

India have been an outstanding under Kohli in the Test arena, defeating Sri Lanka and South Africa in their last two series. Kohli will be gunning for a hat-trick of series wins when they face the West Indies. Batsmen like Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit and Rahane are set to be chosen for the series, with Rahul set to give Rohit a tough fight for a place in the playing XI. Consistent performers in the domestic circuit, like like Nair could also get the nod.
