Fast bowler Shardul Thakur has been included in the Indian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup. He has been included in the main team in place of spinner all-rounder Axar Patel.
The selectors of the Indian team have announced to make these changes in the team selected for the T20 World Cup on Wednesday.
