MS Dhoni Dropped From T20I Squads For Windies, Aus Series

Having gone through a slump with Rising Pune Supergiant, he scored 455 runs at a strike-rate of 150 for Chennai Super Kings in their title-winning run earlier this year. He played the Duleep Trophy and whatever matches that happened, he batted well.

For three T20I match series against West Indies: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, K.L. Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav and Shahbaz Nadeem. "So they will be getting a chance to keep and bat".

Hardik Pandya, who was injured during the Asia Cup, also misses out on both the series. "As of now, he won't be ready till November 15".

Rohit Sharma will lead India in the three-match T20I series against the Windies while regular captain Virat Kohli takes a deserved rest ahead of the tour Down Under. "After that, we will take a call", Prasad said.

The Indian selectors have included batsman Rohit Sharma and opener Murali Vijay for the Test matches starting December 6 in Adelaide.

The player once dubbed "Captain Cool" retired from Tests in 2014 and then relinquished the limited-overs captaincy in 2017. The Ranchi hero, who led India to glory in the inaugural edition of the premier T20I tournament, may not continue playing global cricket beyond next year's 50-over World Cup.

The blues are bolstered by the return of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, in their absence, the bowling unit clobbered for 320 plus runs in both games. The left-arm spinner picked up 8 for 10 in September and is part of five spin options that India have chosen to play West Indies, alongside the incumbents Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, and allrounders Krunal Pandya and Washington Sundar. He will be looking to go all guns blazing again in the third ODI.
