India already has a 1-0 lead in the ongoing two-match Test series. India has rested Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and has also dropped Dinesh Karthik from the ODI set-up.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant's inclusion in India's 14-man squad announced by the BCCI on Thursday for the first two ODIs against West Indies nearly spells doom for the underperforming senior pro Dinesh Karthik.

The selectors have also recalled Mohammad Shami and have given a chance for young Rishabh Pant to cement his place in the ODI XI.

Kedar Jadhav, the game-changer at the Asia Cup, who picked up a hamstring injury in Dubai, will be available for selection for the last three ODIs.

Ambati Rayudu, after a good Asia Cup performance, will retain his place even if Kohli decides to play. Pant had hit a scintillating 114 off 146 balls in the final Test match against England at The Oval in September and smashed an 84-ball 92 in the first Test against West Indies at Rajkot.

The chief selector also said Virat Kohli, who was rested for the Asia Cup, will play the entire series. He was ruled out in between the Asia Cup after a back injury.

With 13 ODIs left for India until the World Cup next year, the chairman of selectors MSK Prasad was keen on testing India's fast-bowling bench strength.

Pacer Siddharth Kaul, who was called up as an injury replacement during the Asia Cup, was also left out.

Earlier in the day, India announced a 12-member squad for the Hyderabad Test starting tomorrow, it was a surprise that Mayank Agarwal again does not get picked.

"That's the reason why we have included Khaleel, Shardul [Thakur] and Shami in this squad now", he said. In search of second wicketkeeper, we have given opportunities to DK and right now we are giving an opportunity to Rishabh Pant. The first game will be played in Guwahati on October 21.
