T20I series Vs WI: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar, KL Rahul, DK, Manish, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem.

With Dhoni playing only seven T20 internationals this year and India's next ODI assignment only in January against Australia, the former captain won't be getting any domestic matches with both Vijay Hazare and Deodhar Trophy tournaments already over.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been dropped from India's Twenty20 teams for the home series against West Indies and the tour of Australia, it was announced after selectors revealed the squads Friday.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma was named captain of India for the three-match series against West Indies, which begins on November 4.

The player once dubbed "Captain Cool" retired from Tests in 2014 and then relinquished the limited-overs captaincy in 2017.


Kohli, however, returns for the four-match Test series against Australia later this year with the BCCI's selection committee naming an 18-member team for the important assignment.

India brought back fast-bowling reinforcements in the form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah - who were rested for the first two ODIs - while Khaleel Ahmed returned to the side. It was a performance that earned him a man of the match award. With this win, West Indies leveled the five-match series 1-1.

Virat Kohli walked into bat in the third over after opener Rohit Sharma was dismissed by Jason Holder for just 8 runs.

The fourth ODI will be played on October 29 at Mumbai's Brabourne Stadium.
