Dhoni dropped from T20I series against Windies, Australia

Pune: Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was on Friday dropped from the Indian T20I squads for the three-match rubber against the West Indies and also the subsequent three T20I matches against Australia.

Khaleel Ahmed, who's India's latest attempt at diversity in a right-arm-only pace attack, conceded 17 runs in his first two overs, largely undoing Bhuvneshwar's stingy opening spell of 4-0-16-0 but came back well, following a one-run over with the one that accounted for Marlon Samuels - the No. 4 batsman edging one in the off-stump channel. "So they will be getting a chance to keep and bat". When someone like Hardik is not playing, who gives you both bowling and batting option, it is hard to get the balance. "As of now, he won't be ready till November 15".

"Vijay went back and performed and, considering the intensity of the series, we have brought him back", Prasad said.

Pune: India skipper Virat Kohli's 38th ODI ton went in vain as a disciplined West Indies came back strongly to win the third One-day worldwide by 43 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium here on Saturday.
