BCCI announces India squad for first 2 ODIs against Windies

Ind v WI,India vs West Indies,India vs Windies

It's still unclear whether skipper Virat Kohli is picked up for the squad or Rohit Sharma - who led India to Asia Cup triumph in Dubai - would be asked to lead the side.

India has announced its squad for the first two ODIs against West Indies and it seems MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant have both made the squad, India captain Virat Kohli has not been rested which is a big news for the fans. While Pandya had injured his lower back in the Asia Cup match against Pakistan to be ruled out of the tournament, Jadhav won India the title with an injured hamstring. The last time Shami played an ODI was in September 2017 against Australia. He had played all five Tests in England and the first one against West Indies in Rajkot, after being hampered with injury issues in the first half of the year. Chahar and Kaul had been injury replacements for Pandya and Shardul Thakur in the Asia Cup. Kohli's performance against West Indies in the first Test hinted that the Run Machine is perfectly fit and he might not be inclined to take any further rest.

Ravindra Jadeja, who had a dream comeback in the Asia Cup, retains his spot while Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are the other two spinners on the team.

Pant's explosive hitting down the order along with Dhoni's poor run with the bat, might help the 20-year-old force his way into the side when the MSK Prasad-led selection committee sit in Hyderabad to select the squad on Thursday.

However, the primary bone of contention will be whether the selectors and the team management will at least agree on having a cover batsman for Dhoni, whose wicketkeeping remains sharp but batting form has been on the slide. The first game will be played in Guwahati on October 21.

"That's the reason why we have included Khaleel, Shardul [Thakur] and Shami in this squad now", he said.
