Pune: Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was on Friday dropped from the Indian T20I squads for the three-match rubber against the West Indies and also the subsequent three T20I matches against Australia. So I think we will retain Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik.

The first of three T20 matches in Australia will be played in Brisbane on November 21 before the teams move to four Tests and four one-day internationals. "It is not the end of Dhoni in T20Is", chief selector MSK Prasad was quoted as saying. Hope top-scored for West Indies during his 113-ball knock. When someone like Hardik is not playing, who gives you both bowling and batting option, it is hard to get the balance.

India 32/1 after 6 overs, Shikhar Dhawan 12, Virat Kohli 10, India vs West Indies, 3rd ODI LIVE score: Team India is all set to take on West Indies in the 3rd ODI of five-match series at the MCA stadium of Pune. Rohit Sharma has once again earned a ticket to Australia.

After Nunez departed, Devers failed to come up with a hard grounder that cost the Red Sox a run in the fifth inning. Sources say the Dodgers also believed that Houston was stealing signs in last year's World Series.

Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel has also found a place in the Test squad. The allrounder has not recovered from a back injury that he suffered during the Asia Cup in September. The 23-year old last played a T20I in December 2017 but has since then become an important figure in the A team and also took over captaincy of the Delhi Daredevils.

Dhoni, 37, despite being a sharp planner and a safe and agile hand behind the stumps, has been struggling to finish matches with the bat, something that came naturally to him at his peak and made him a modern legend.

With more variations in their repertoire in white ball cricket compared to the profligate Umesh Yadav and an inconsistent Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah are expected to make a significant difference, especially in the first Powerplay and the death overs.
