Amidst the semi-final tie between India and Bangladesh in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India has announced a 15-member squad for India's upcoming West Indies tour.

West Indies did not qualify for the ICC Champions Trophy and they will be keen to take on high-flying India in the Caribbean.

The 19-year-old Pant impressed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 for Delhi Daredevils. Kumble is one of the candidates in contention, after the BCCI invited applications for the job amid reports that Virat Kohli and some senior players were unhappy with Kumble's methods. Jasprit Bumrah also not picked in the 15-man squad for five ODIs and only T20I.

The other significant development is that Anil Kumble has agreed to go to the West Indies. It is pretty clear that Indian team management wanted Rohit to play this tourney desperately and then give him rest so that there isn't too much pressure on his body. Pant and Shikhar Dhawan are expected to be the two openers for the tour. The tournament will end on the 18th and they will fly to the West Indies after it.

Kuldeep has been on coach Kumble's radar for a long time now and even chairman of selectors Prasad feels he is one for the future.

Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav, who's crucial scalps helped India win the series-clinching Test against Australia in Dharamsala, will be the third spinner in the side with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

Squad: Virat Kohli (C), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Mohd.
