The announcement was made by the BCCI after a meeting between secretary Jay Shah and chief selector Ajit Agarkar in Ahmedabad.

Despite his recent form, Hardik Pandya retains the vice-captaincy. Samson, performing well for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, earns a spot as the second wicketkeeper-batter.

Shivam Dube, known for his powerful hitting, secured his spot in the squad following an impressive performance in the IPL.

Leg-spinner Chahal returns to the team alongside Kuldeep Yadav. Gill and Singh are named among the standbys, with Yashasvi Jaiswal also included after a resurgence in form.

India will kick off their campaign against Ireland on June 5 in New York.
