News agency PTI quoted chief selector MSK Prasad as saying the decision did not mean that Dhoni's career is over. So I think we will retain Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik.

Meanwhile skipper Virat Kohli has been rested for the three T20 matches against West Indies starting November 4 in Kolkata and will return for the Australia series.

Rohit Sharma has been included as an additional batsman in the Test squad and he makes a comeback after being dropped for indifferent form in South Africa. The allrounder has not recovered from a back injury that he suffered during the Asia Cup in September.

The player once dubbed "Captain Cool" retired from Tests in 2014 and then relinquished the limited-overs captaincy in 2017.

Dhoni, 37, despite being a sharp planner and a safe and agile hand behind the stumps, has been struggling to finish matches with the bat, something that came naturally to him at his peak and made him a modern legend.
