India is leading the five-match T20I series against West Indies by 2-1. The men in blue will aim to win the ongoing fourth T20I and seal the series win.
Star player Harshal Patel who missed the last two T20Is owing to an injury, was not included in the playing XI of the 4th T20I. He has been ruled out of the last match as well.
BCCI made an announcement about the exclusion of Patel from the remaining series.
" Harshal Patel has not fully recovered from his rib injury and is ruled out of the remaining two T20Is against West Indies," BCCI tweeted.
The announcement has also raised concerns about Patel's inclusion in the upcoming Asia Cup. The matches are scheduled from the 27th of August to the 11th of September.
