Rishabh Pant and Kuldeep Yadav were selected while Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah missed out.

The Indian selectors have named uncapped Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant along with left-arm chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav in India's ODI squad for the upcoming West Indies tour.

In the case of Rohit, who is coming back after a hamstring surgery, the team management probably doesn't want him to play too many back to back matches as he has already played a month and a half of Indian Premier League followed by the Champions Trophy.

Interestingly, India's opener Rohit Sharma, who made a comeback to global cricket in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2017 after a long break, has not been included in the squad. It is probably because both have had a few injury problems and the board feels they need rest.

'Goonda' remark: No statements should be made against Army, says Rahul Gandhi
Gandhi further said that the Indian Army serves the nation and, therefore, no political statements should be made against them. On Sunday, Dikshit said the army chief shouldn't make statements like a " sadak ka gunda " referring to his recent statements.

Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the three pacers while Hardik Pandya continues to hold the pace-bowling all-rounder's spot. Pant and Shikhar Dhawan are expected to be the two openers for the tour.

The members of the team management will stay unchanged for the tour. It is possible - provided Kumble agrees - that he will get an extension for the West Indies series while the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of the BCCI, which comprises Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, decides on the next coach.

West Indies did not qualify for the ICC Champions Trophy and they will be keen to take on high-flying India in the Caribbean.

"I am very happy that I am selected for West Indies tour". Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Dinesh Karthik.
