Deepak Chahar, Washington Sundar make comeback to ODI fold in Zimbabwe Tour.

Off-spinner Washington Sundar, who has made a stellar start to his English county career with Lancashire is back in the squad along with seamer Deepak Chahar after successful completion of his rehabilitation following hamstring and back injuries.

KL Rahul has recovered from COVID-19 but his hamstring injury seems to have resurfaced. He was supposed to be picked for Zimbabwe but now one can’t put a date on his comeback,” a senior BCCI source privy to development told PTI on Saturday.Meanwhile, Virat Kohli, skipper Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya have all been rested from the tour as ODIs aren’t top priority for the side with less than three months left for the World T20.

In case of Washington it was never about how but when would he come back as he has been India’s No. 1 finger spinner. He needed game time which he got,” the source added. Sikhar Dhavan

 will lead the side in Rohit, Rahul and Pant’s absence.

Most of the players who had been part of set-up have been picked with rookie Rahul Tripathi

, after being part of the squad in Ireland T20Is, getting maiden call up to the ODI side.
