It's still unclear whether skipper Virat Kohli is picked up for the squad or Rohit Sharma - who led India to Asia Cup triumph in Dubai - would be asked to lead the side.
Rishabh Pant's impressive form with the bat for India in Test cricket has not gone unnoticed and he could well be rewarded with a limited-overs call up for the ODI series versus West Indies. "I have been telling this for a quite some time that we are just 18 ODIs away from now before we play first game of the World Cup and so we need to figure out our fast bowlers and so we have picked Shami", said Prasad. Thakur returned to the squad after recovering and playing a domestic one-day match for Mumbai against Punjab in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, taking 3 for 53 and scoring 30 off 14 balls in the match.
"Of course Umesh Yadav is also part of our pool and as we are looking at a workload management strategy". Ravindra Jadeja is also expected to make it after his lion-hearted show as Axar Patel's replacement. The spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal has been named in the Indian team.

West's "terrific" wife opened his eyes, Trump said. "I didn't mean to put you on blast like that, bro". "Oh, that don't stop me". Rapper Kanye West had a few things to say when he stopped by the White House for a visit with President Donald Trump Thursday.
"It's no brainer who is our No. 1 wicketkeeper", Prasad said. "We have given a few opportunities to Karthik".
Rishabh Pant has also been included in the 14-member Indian squad. While there have plenty of exclusions and inclusions, we take a look at the players who failed to make it to the squad. India thrashed West Indies by an innings and 272 runs to win the Test. In Pant, India have a chance to not only trial a new wicketkeeper in ODIs but also an explosive batsman in the middle order.
The ODI series against West Indies begins on October 21 in Guwahati before moving to Visakhapatnam on October 24. "We've made a decision to rotate our players so that we can avoid break downs", Prasad said. The last three ODIs are scheduled to be played in Pune, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram.
