However, India’s captain Rohit Sharma explained that the team is aware of how spin bowlers are gaining popularity on Caribbean pitches. He mentioned that there is a strategic decision taken to include 4 spin bowlers in the team. Siraj was replaced by Kuldeep Yadav, who made his World Cup T20 debut against Afghanistan.

The decision to replace Siraj Kuldeep was the team’s best as Yadav dismissed 2 Afghan batsmen in his first match. Team India still has four pace options with Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh at the top, followed by Hardik Pandya and the all-rounder Shivam Dube. However, Dube has bowled in only one match till now.
