BCCI announces Indian cricket team for West Indies series
Led by MSK Prasad, Team India's selection committee today announced India’s squad for the upcoming tour to West Indies. Virat Kohli will lead the team in all three formats. Former captain MS Dhoni has been rested for the tour, while Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed called up in ODIs.

When asked about Dhoni, MSK Prasad said, "He (MS Dhoni) has expressed his unavailability for the West Indies tour but we have a road map for coming days and future of India cricket."

In the absence of Dhoni, Rishabh Pant will be India's first choice for wicket-keeping in all three formats. While talking about Pant, MSK Prasad asserted that "Rishabh Pant has not done anything wrong for his non-inclusion. We know he's the only wicketkeeper to get a 100 in England and then in Australia. Pant will play in all formats, we have to manage his workload."

Here're India's squads for all three formats:

India’s squad for 2 Tests: Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane (VC), Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, C Pujara, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant (WK) Wriddhiman Saha (WK), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav

India’s squad for 3 ODIs: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kedar Jadhav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini

India’s squad for 3 T20Is: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (WK), Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini
