The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Thursday announced a 15-member Indian team for the first two One-Day Internationals against West Indies. The first ODI will be played on October 21 in Guwahati at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, whereas the second game will be hosted by the YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on October 24. Mohammed Shami, who last played an ODI in 2017 against Australia, has been recalled to the squad. Also back in the mix is fast bowler Mohammad Shami, who last played an ODI over a year ago.

"Of course Umesh Yadav is also part of our pool and as we are looking at a workload management strategy". Both played the Asia Cup but were rested for the Test series against Windies.

The boost from the Nidahas Cup heroics (in Sri Lanka) has run its course for Dinesh Karthik as Rishabh Pant was named in the squad. "We have given a few opportunities to Karthik". Virat Kohli, who was rested for the Asia Cup, will resume his limited overs captaincy in the ODI series.

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.

Although there were suggestions from former Indian cricketers to try new players in the second Test against the Windies, bowling coach Bharat Arun has said the best XI will be fielded in the second match in Hyderabad from October 12.

India will have to wait for the return of Hardik Pandya, who suffered a lower back injury during the Asia Cup in the UAE and had to be stretchered out.

Virat Kohli (Capt), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni (wk), Rishabh Pant, R Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, and KL Rahul.
