The team management had rested some key players against Afghanistan and when they return to the team, there will not be much scope for changes in the team.

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Ashwin said that Dubey can provide India with another seam-bowling all-round option in the team. Apart from this, he also says that the conditions in West Indies and America will help Dubey the most and he can prove useful with the ball.
Ashwin said, “I can proudly call him the ‘Yuvraj Singh Lite’ package. There are a lot of things about Yuvraj Singh that I can see in his game – the downswing, the height and the reach. This all-rounder has also won the title of Man of the Series against Afghanistan.”
Shivam Dubey scored two half-centuries in the first two matches against Afghanistan and also took two wickets with the ball. If Hardik Pandya is not fit before the start of the tournament, Dubey can be useful.
