On the announcement of the squad Head Coach Grant Bradburn said, “It is great to be announcing an extremely strong and well balanced T20 squad for India. We have an excellent mix of youth and experience across the squad, with every player offering dynamic specific skills in this format.” The side has five warm up fixtures in India to adapt to conditions and to complete team preparation.
