It was a long time demand to include Suryakumar Yadav and Ishaan Kishan in Team India. Both outperformed in domestic cricket and IPL 2020. Rahul Tewatia also played well. On the other hand, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has returned to the team after a long time injury. Left-arm wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav, Sanju Samson and injured Manish Pandey has been left out of the squad, while fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been rested.
