Praveen Kumar ruled out of first three ODIs against WI
India's pace spearhead Praveen Kumar has been ruled out of the first three ODIs against the West Indies. The bowling responsibility will fall upon the young shoulders of R Vinay Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Varun Aaron, who were impressive against England in the last series.
Karnataka fast bowler Abhimanyu Mithun will replace Praveen, who is out with a chest problem. Off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will look to continue his sensational run against the West Indies, having made a dream Test debut with 22 wickets in three matches against the visitors.
Left-armer Ravindra Jadeja, who played some crucial knocks with the bat against England, will be the other spinner. Jadeja is having a good time with the bat too and scored a triple century against Orissa in the Ranji Trophy.
