All-rounder Krunal Pandya and left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed received their maiden T20I cap on Sunday as they made their debut for India in the first T20I against West Indies at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

Elder brother of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Krunal was part of the squad for the three T20I series in England but did not get a game. The 27-year old was named in the XII after consistent performances for Mumbai Indians, Baroda and India A in the last three years.

After grabbing headlines during Asia Cup, Khaleel ended the ODI series against West Indies as the third-highest wicket-taker with seven wickets in four matches. The 20-year was only behind spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav in the list.
