The BCCI have announced the Indian squad for the upcoming tour of the West Indies. India are set to take on the West Indies in 5 ODI's and 1 T20 starting from June 23rd. More importantly, the BCCI also said that the administrative staff of the Indian Cricket Team will be the same for this tour.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee met earlier today to select the Indian Cricket Team for the upcoming India’s tour of the West Indies, 2017.

The team is as follows:

TEAM - Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Mohd. Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Dinesh Karthik.

The inclusion of Kuldeep Yadav in place of Jasprit Bumrah is what stands out among the bowlers and Kuldeep's presence means that India have opted for three frontline spinners in their side along with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

Further, Rishabh Pant's exploits in IPL 2017 has also been rewarded with a place in the Indian squad for the upcoming series, with Rohit Sharma making way for the hard-hitting Pant.

Here are the complete fixtures of India’s tour of the West Indies, 2017:
