New Delhi:

International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Haroon Lorgat said they are looking forward to a full-strength Indian side on the West Indies tour as per the commitment to the Future Tours Programme.

Lorgat was commenting on media reports that top Indian cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, skipper M.S. Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and Gautam Gambhir have asked to be rested for the One-day series that will precede the Tests.

"I think it affects the brand of cricket. Everybody want to see a full-strength side. The same applies to the IPL and any of the FTP commitments. Because of the volume of cricket, every individual player has to be managed.

"One or two stars asking for a rest is okay. If five or six stars do not want to go to the West Indies, then I think, it's not appropriate fulfillment of what has been committed to the FTP," said Lorgat during a TV news show.

India will play a T20 International in Trinidad June 4, five One-dayers and three Tests.

The Indian team is playing non-stop for sometime now and only got six days rest after the World Cup before the Indian Premier league began.
