India`s 12-member team for the 1st T20I against Windies

Chief selector MSK Prasad also said that it was not the end of the road for Dhoni in T20Is. His absence gives Rishabh Pant a chance to prove his credentials.

Pant is expected to fulfil the wicket-keeping responsibilities while Karthik could take on one of the positions in the outfield. The 31-year old has a world record score of 264 in ODIs here in 2014, a Test ton (177) and two IPL titles won on this ground. He would look to carry his fine form from the ODI series, in which he finished behind Kohli, with 389 runs, at a staggering average of 129.66.

Months earlier, the Windies had also overcome the Indians in Mumbai, in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup, and Brathwaite said he was hoping for similar results in the three-match series. India's last win against West Indies came way back on March 23, 2014 in the World T20 in Bangladesh.

Captain Brathwaite, who famously clubbed four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to win the World Cup here two years ago, will also be counted on as a match victor for the side missing the services of talisman Chris Gayle who declined selection. Andre Russell and Sunil Narine are injured at this time.

In 2018, Dhoni, who has also captained India to 50-over World Cup glory in 2011, managed only 245 runs at 27.22 in 17 matches.


West Indies, the defending T20 World champion, will have a new captain and a refurbished squad to challenge the host, which strives to maintain its sway going into the final leg of the bi-lateral series which begins here at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.

Elder brother of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Krunal was part of the squad for the three T20I series in England but did not get a game.

All-rounder Krunal Pandya and left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed received their maiden T20I cap on Sunday as they made their debut for India in the first T20I against West Indies at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

With Virat Kohli rested ahead of the bigger battles Down Under, India's stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma will have the task getting India's record better against the Windies.
