  • Windies will look to go one better after pulling off a dramatic tie in the second ODI

Virat Kohli's 38th ODI century was not enough for India to pull through as West Indies notched a 43-run win in Pune and leveled the five-match series 1-1.

The committee said Dhoni, the 2007 World T20-winning skipper, has been "rested" and India are now looking to fill in the second wicket-keeper's slot.

Aakash, who has been following the game from close quarters, questioned for curtains being raised over Dhoni's career in the T20I format.

A big score is expected from young Rishabh Pant, who has got the ability to go all guns blazing. While he has continued to excel behind the stumps, critics observe that the former India captain's batting is but a mere shadow of his attacking past. It was a performance that earned him a man of the match award. He is all geared up for this game which could be a series victor. We did not get the partnerships going.

West Indies were in trouble early when Bumrah snatched two cheap wickets to leave the innings in turmoil at 55 for three in the 14th over.

The selectors have also picked up India A team for first Four Day game against New Zealand A.

The third ODI between India and West Indies is being telecast on Star Sports 1 and 1 HD, Hindi 1 and Hindi 1 HD and Tamil 1.

Virat Kohli (C), M Vijay, KL Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Parthiv Patel, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Rohit Sharma will lead the team in Kohli's absence.
