The Board of Control for Cricket in India has announced the Indian team for the first two ODIs of the five-match series against the West Indies. The first ODI will be played on October 21 in Guwahati at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, whereas the second game will be hosted by the YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on October 24.

"Mohammed Shami has been included precisely for that reason". The last time Shami played an ODI was in September 2017 against Australia.

"Of course Umesh Yadav is also part of our pool and as we are looking at a workload management strategy. We've chose to rotate our players so that we can avoid break downs", Prasad said.

Karthik had played all six matches in the Asia Cup and scored 146 runs at an average of 48.66 but a strike rate of 71.21, only higher than MS Dhoni's (62.09) among Indian batsmen who batted at least twice in the tournament. Prasad said the latter, who has impressed after his Test debut, will play as a batsman.

On KL Rahul, who returned to form at the fag end of the England series but failed to capitalise on a wicket in Rajkot where every other Indian batsmen made merry, Arun said the former is a "fantastic player" who should be persisted with. "We have given a few opportunities to Karthik".

It's still unclear whether skipper Virat Kohli is picked up for the squad or Rohit Sharma - who led India to Asia Cup triumph in Dubai - would be asked to lead the side.

The middle-order batting concern remains but Prasad said the team management "is very close to sorting out that problem". The second Test starts in Hyderabad on 12 October. While Pandya had injured his back, Jadhav had suffered hamstring issues. Prasad said he would be considered for the remaining ODIs against West Indies.

Pacer Siddharth Kaul, who was called up as an injury replacement during the Asia Cup, was also left out.
