Meanwhile, the recent report from BCCI is that Sanju Samson has been included  in the upcoming T20 series against West Indies.

Sanju Samson may replace Shikar dhawan in WI series

Reportedly, Shikar Dhawan had to suffer left knee injury during the Syed Ali Mushtaq Trophy and only the medical report can certify his fitness to play in the West Indies series. "Samson might be included in the squad as a replacement of Dhawan. Dhawan got operated on his knee, depending upon his medical  status report, the final call will be taken," TOI quoted one BCCI source few hours ago. As per the recent report from BCCI, Shikar Dhawan has been officially ruled out of the T20 squad and Sanju Samson comes in as the replacement.

The  BCCI listed the new squad for 3 T20Is after the inclusion of Sanju Samson.
