BCCI has announced India's ODI squad for the first two matches of the five-match series against the Windies.

Rishabh Pant on Thursday earned a maiden call-up to the Indian ODI team, replacing Dinesh Karthik for the first two games against the West Indies. Virat Kohli, who was rested for the Asia Cup, will resume his limited overs captaincy in the ODI series.

Prithvi Shaw, 18, became India's youngest player to score a debut century and his country's second youngest in all Tests after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, notching up a sparkling 134.

Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya were dropped from the first two ODIs.

India rested Mohammed Shami and brought in fellow pacer Shardul Thakur who is making his Test debut.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also insisted that Petrov and Boshirov were "civilians" and not agents of Russia's military. The group said it would provide forensic evidence and other information it used to conclude Petrov was Mishkin on Tuesday.

West Indies captain Jason Holder won the toss and chose to bat first against Indian the second test of the two-match series on Friday.

Ambati Rayudu, after a good Asia Cup performance, will retain his place even if Kohli decides to play.

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. Right now we're giving an opportunity to Rishabh Pant.

Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, and Shardul Thakur have also been included in the Indian squad.

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.
