Hungry for his first ICC T20 Championship and apart from looking to break his personal jinx of not scoring a century in a T20 Internationals, captain Virat Kohli will be looking to find the best balance in terms of selecting the best opening combination, pace attack, spinners and all-rounders to face the challenge that will come from some of the world's best T20 teams.
With Dhoni not being a part of the squad, all eyes will be on Rishabh Pant to fill the shoes of one of India's most successful and admired wicket-keeper batsman.

newer players like Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, among others to test their mettle and cement their position in the squad for the ICC T20 World Cup.
