Amid intense speculation over his future, MS Dhoni is not travelling with the India squad to the West Indies. Chief selector MSK Prasad has said the wicketkeeper-batsman has "expressed his unavailability" for the tour.

Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya have been rested from the white-ball leg of the tour, and the latter isn't part of the Test squad either. Virat Kohli attended the selection meeting on Sunday having received a "special invite" to it.

The Test squad was largely along expected lines, with Wriddhiman Saha making his return after more than a year out injured as one of two wicketkeepers alongside Rishabh PantR Ashwin, who hasn't played international cricket since the Adelaide Test in December 2018, and missed the rest of the Australia Tests with a side strain, is part of a three-member spin contingent alongside Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav.
