India and Windies will be locking horns in the five-match ODI series after the conclusion of the ongoing Test series. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the 14-man squad for the first two ODIs.
Rishabh Pant will be in line to make his ODI debut against Windies after he was picked by the selectors as a replacement of Dinesh Karthik. Virat Kohli is back to lead the side after he missed the Asia Cup 2018 and frontline quick bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have been rested.
Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav have still not recovered from their injuries, though the latter could come back after the first two ODIs.
Among pacers, Mohammed Shami, who last played an ODI over a year ago, will once again be seen in the blue jersey. He had played all the five Tests in England and the first one against Windies in Rajkot after being hampered with injury issues in the first half of the year.
Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed continues to stay with the team after an impressive debut in the Asia Cup.
India’s ODI squad:
Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal
