West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell has been named in the T20I squad for the first two games against India but his inclusion will depend on him passing a fitness test. 

Russell, who was a member of the Windies' World Cup 2019 squad, had to exit the edition midway due to a knee injury. He is now recuperating and hopes to be fit for the T20Is that start from August 3. 

The cricketer posted a video of himself batting in the nets on Instagram, and though he looked in good shape, whether he is deemed match fit remains to be seen.
