MS Dhoni dropped from T20 squads; Virat Kohli rested for Windies T20s

He will also lead the side in the three T20 matches against Australia.

West Indies coach Stuart Law said that he his happy about the fact that his team's batsmen have fared well so far in the ODI series and have been able to "manufacture" changes in the Indian squad for the next three ODIs. Dinesh Karthik is also part of both the squads.

"The T20Is here and in Australia, he [Dhoni] is not going to play, because we are also looking at a second wicketkeeper".

As expected, skipper Virat Kohli has been rested for the series against West Indies but returns for the three T20Is in Australia. His IPL team-mate Shahbaz Nadeem earned an India call-up as well, soon after a world record performance, albeit in 50-over cricket. Nadeem, who recently finished as the highest wicket-taker in the Vijay Hazare Trophy - India's List A competition - with 24 wickets at an average of 13.04 and an economy of 3.86, however doesn't make the cut for the Australia T20Is, with his exclusion for the Australia games and Kohli's inclusion for the same being the only distinction between the two T20I squads. The left-arm spinner picked up 8 for 10 in September and is part of five spin options that India have chosen to play West Indies, alongside the incumbents Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, and allrounders Krunal Pandya and Washington Sundar.

There's also American AF , a T-shirt seller now running ads for its "Donald Pump" shirt, depicting the president lifting weights. But some big spenders on ads "related to issues of national importance " appear to be vendors chiefly interested in making money.

MS Dhoni has been dropped for the first time since he established himself as a heavyweight in Indian cricket. "He's [Hardik] not yet recovered. But when we get an opportunity, we have got to grab hold of it", Law said.

India's first T20I against the Windies is scheduled to be played on November 4 in Kolkata, followed by matches in Lucknow and Chennai on November 6 and November 11 respectively.

Team India Virat Kohli however, has been a thorn in their flesh and scored two centuries in two matches but Law is expecting the Indian captain to falter. Apparently, the swashbuckling batsman has been given rest in order to keep him fresh for the highly-anticipated Australian tour in late November. BCCI also announced the squad for four Test matches against Australia.
