India and Windies will be locking horns in the five-match ODI series after the conclusion of the ongoing Test series. Virat Kohli was back to lead the side after he missed the Asia Cup, but frontline quick bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah were rested.

Squad for first two ODIs: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, KL Rahul.

Pant replaces the seasoned Dinesh Karthik in the 15-man squad.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed - as widely speculated - that Eugenie's sister Princess Beatrice will serve as her Maid of Honour. Unlike other royal weddings , the day will not be broadcast on BBC, with ITV's This Morning instead taking over the coverage.

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

India will have to wait for the return of Hardik Pandya, who suffered a lower back injury during the Asia Cup in the UAE and had to be stretchered out. Pant had hit a scintillating 114 off 146 balls in the final Test match against England at The Oval in September and smashed an 84-ball 92 in the first Test against West Indies at Rajkot. Chahar and Kaul had been injury replacements for Pandya and Shardul Thakur in the Asia Cup.

"Mohammed Shami has been included precisely for that reason". Raina could have been the flawless No.6 batsman who can take up Jadhav's position for the West Indies series. Delhi wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been included in the team.

The ODI series against West Indies begins on October 21 in Guwahati before moving to Visakhapatnam on October 24.
