The Indian team for West Indies was scheduled to be picked on Friday, July 19, but it has now been postponed and will be announced at a later date. The senior selection committee that is headed by MSK Prasad had picked Friday to announce the squad for the tour, where India will play three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests. The announcement will now be made either on Saturday or Sunday. 

The West Indies tour is attracting attention as fresh faces are expected to be included in the men's national senior team. At least three players who were not in the World Cup squad are likly to come in, with Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav and possibly MS Dhoni not being selected in the team. Youngsters like Manish Pandey, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer can get a look-in, as the team looks for newer faces ahead of the T20 World Cup in 2020. 

Virat Kohli, who was earlier expected to be rested for the series, is now likely to play all the games. Jasprit Bumrah, however, might be given a break form the T20Is and the ODIs, before he returns for the Tests. 

It is also unclear whether MS Dhoni will be selected in the squad. Reports suggest that the wicket-keeper might hang up his boots, while others state that the Indian selectors will not pick him in the team to Windies even if he does not announce his retirement, as they look to groom in younger faces.
