Pant replaces the seasoned Dinesh Karthik in the 15-man squad. In their place are Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur form India's bowling department. "That'll be among those people whom we are going to pick from now onwards, which also includes Umesh Yadav".

Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed continues to stay with the team after an impressive debut in the Asia Cup. Raina could have been the flawless No.6 batsman who can take up Jadhav's position for the West Indies series.

Kedar Jadhav, who suffered a hamstring injury during the Asia Cup, has also been rested.

Axar Patel had also injured himself during the Asia Cup but his place was lost because of Ravindra Jadeja's successful comeback. The spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal has been named in the Indian team.

"We all know that Dhoni will play till the World Cup but there is no harm in grooming Pant, who could be a terrific No.6 or 7 batsman, who has the ability to finish games", a senior BCCI official privy to selection matters told PTI.

"It's no brainer who is our No. 1 wicketkeeper", Prasad said. "And we can take a call at appropriate time about who is the best among the two". In his 28 match List A career so far, Pant has scored 838 runs at an average of 28.09, with one century and five half-centuries. As a result of a string of good performances, Rishabh Pant got a much-deserved call-up to the Indian side for the five-match ODI series which begins on October 21 in Guwahati. Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, and Manish Pandey complete India's batting line-up. "We've chose to rotate our players so that we can avoid break downs", Prasad said. The last three ODIs are scheduled to be played in Pune, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram.
