West Indies is a very unpredictable side and Indian team need to understand it as well. The combination need to be fit in perfectly and if that’s done, it would be beneficial for the future as well. India isn’t struggling with lack of options but struggling with far too many options and that’s actually a problem. Sanju Samson has waited for a long while and the ridiculous backing of Rishabh Pant might chuckle him a bit but he may very well get an opportunity down the road.
