India, after finishing runners-up in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, arrived in West Indies for five ODIs and the only T20I starting June 23. The Indian team have included chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant while opener Rohit Sharma and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah have been rested for this tour.

The Men in Blue ended as the runners-up in the recently concluded Champions Trophy after suffering a defeat by 180 runs at the hands of arch-rivals Pakistan. On the other hand, West Indies failed to qualify for Champions Trophy 2017 as they were not among the top eight ODI teams as per ICC rankings on September 30, 2015.

 

Earlier, West Indies drew the three-match ODI series against Afghanistan 1-1 at home. They lost the first match by 64 runs after Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan bagged a record 7/18 in the match. The hosts later won the second match and the third was called off due to rain.

Squad: Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Mohd. Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Dinesh Karthik
