Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar were given the much needed rest as selectors have appointed Virender Sehwag captain of the 15-member squad for the first three ODIs against West Indies.

Another senior player Yuvraj Singh was also not in the squad as he has informed the Board that he is not fully fit, a media release issued by the BCCI stated.
