India rest two key players for Windies ODIs

Friday, November 25, 2011

India’s Sachin Tendulkar, who is on the verge of an unprecedented 100th international century, has been rested for the first three matches of the upcoming five-game one-day series against the West Indies.

India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, leading the side in the ongoing Test series against the tourists, has been rested for the entire series, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a statement on Friday. Hard-hitting opener Virender Sehwag will lead the team in Dhoni’s absence.

Tendulkar, with 51 hundreds in Tests and 48 in one-day internationals, came close to scoring the 100th century before falling for 94 in the ongoing third and final Test in Mumbai on Friday.

All-rounder Yuvraj Singh was not named in the 15-man squad for the opening three matches as he was not fit.

“Yuvraj was not considered for selection as he has informed that he is not fully fit,” the BCCI said.

India’s one-day squad for first three matches:

Virender Sehwag (capt), Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Parthiv Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Vinay Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron, Rohit Sharma, Manoj Tiwary, Rahul Sharma. AFP
