He has played 1 T20I for India.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav were picked Thursday for India's limited-overs tour of the West Indies comprising five one-day internationals and one Twenty20 starting June 23.

Both Rishabh and Kuldeep were in stand byes for the Champions Trophy and it was only a fair call by the selection committee led by MSK Prasad to try the two youngsters against a weaker global side. Opener Rohit Sharma and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah are the only members from the Champions Trophy squad who won't be making the trip to the Caribbean.

Pant had a brilliant performance for Delhi Daredevils in the tenth edition of Indian Premier League. While Rishabh Pant is expected to open the innings alongside Dhawan.

According to TMZ Sports , no arrests were made following the incident. "Every game is do or die, and we understand that", he said. I don't know. "When stuff gets going like that, I think sometimes it energizes the other team and takes him out of his rhythm".

Pant, 19, could not make the India team for the ongoing Champions Trophy as the selectors preferred experience over youth, but has always been identified as a prospect because of his aggressive batting. But a bigger surprise was lack of clarity on the status of Anil Kumble. The BCCI has hinted Kumble could stay on for the West Indies tour. The tournament will end on the 18th and they will fly to the West Indies after it.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Pant and spinner Kuldeep are in contention to make their one-day worldwide debuts in the Caribbean. The chairman of selection committee called them "players for the future".
