Dhoni rested, Sehwag in charge for ODIs

Mumbai, India - India have rested captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and named opener Virender Sehwag as skipper for the One-Day series against West Indies starting next week.

Sachin Tendulkar, who still needs one more century to complete 100 international hundreds, has been rested for the first three matches, BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement on Friday.

“Yuvraj Singh was not considered for selection as he has informed us that he is not fully fit,” Jagdale added.

Cuttack hosts the first One-Dayer on November 29, followed by matches in Visakhapatnam (December 2), Ahmedabad (December 5), Indore (December 8) and Chennai (December 11).

Squad: Virender Sehwag (captain), Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Parthiv Patel (wicket-keeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, R Vinay Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron, Rohit Sharma, Manoj Tiwary, Rahul Sharma.
