Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya, still recovering from the injuries picked up during the recently concluded Asia Cup, were ruled out while pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were rested, taking into account their recent workload.

The wicketkeeper-batsman's call-up was on expected lines after he impressed in his debut Test series against England before scoring an entertaining 92 in the first Test against the West Indies in Rajkot. However, he was soon back in action during Vijay Hazare Trophy league phase for Mumbai but there were questions about his fitness status. In their place are Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur form India's bowling department. "I think we have a better idea of what we are looking to do against him". The spin attack was retained, with Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal completing the trio.

FPJ's dream XI prediction: Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Prithvi Shaw, Ravindra Jadeja, Rishabh Pant, Devendra Bishoo, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Shannon Gabriel, Shane Dowrich and R Ashwin.

Windies have started their long tour of India that includes two Tests, five ODIs and three T20Is, in a losing cause after an innings defeat against the hosts only in three days.

India would also look to address the festering middle-order woes against the touring Caribbeans.

The search for a solid No. 4 continues though with Manish Pandey and Ambati Rayudu likely to get chances to stake their claim during the West Indies series. "It's been in the debate for some time and we have really closed in on couple of names".

India will take on West Indies in a 5-match ODI series, which is scheduled to be held from October 21 to November 1.
