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.
