MS Dhoni Dropped From T20I Squads For Windies, Aus Series

Windies will look to go one better after pulling off a dramatic tie in the second ODI

But Kohli failed to carry on much further and was clean bowled by Marlon Samuels in the 42nd over, with India still needing 64 more to win off 51 balls. News agency PTI quoted chief selector MSK Prasad as saying the decision did not mean that Dhoni's career is over.

Team for Four Test match series against Australia: Virat Kohli (C), M Vijay, KL Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Parthiv Patel, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The 37-year-old Dhoni has been the team's mainstay after making his mark as a wicketkeeper-batsman and later as leader in all the three formats.

While Indian captain Virat Kohli too was rested for the 3 match T20I series against West Indies, Rohit Sharma will take the charge as the captain in Kohli's absence.

The decision to drop Dhoni from the T20I squads helped raise quite a few eyebrows as the World Cup-winning India captain's name has been axed for the first time since he achieved superstar status more than a decade ago.
