The 27-year-old will find it difficult to make it to the playing XI with the kind of competition he has in the squad having last played a T20I against Sri Lanka at the start of this year.
He is yet to be given chances on a longer basis in the limited overs setup and he will be keen to do well if he makes it to the playing XI. However, unless an injury pops up, head coach Rahul Dravid likes to stick on the first-choice combination.
For the T20Is, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan and Harshal Patel are expected to be the combination and hence, Arshdeep might be the one to miss out on the playing XI.
In terms of opening the innings, India has four openers in the ODI squad and the only position Samson could fit in could be in the middle order. He has played just one ODI so far, where he scored 46 and there are high chances of him being benched throughout the West Indies tour.
However, with Jadeja back in the mix in both ODI and T20I squads for the West Indies tour, Patel might not be able to find a place in the playing XI.
