    Ind team for WI ODIs: Gambhir to lead


    Gautam Gambhir will captain India's limited-overs squad in the West Indies with Suresh Raina as his deputy. Vinay Kumar, S Badrinath and Wriddhiman Saha have been drafted in. MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar and Zaheer Khan have been rested while Sreesanth and Piyush Chawla are not part of the squad.
    Virender Sehwag has been ruled out of the milited-overs leg because of his shoulder injury, for which he is due to have surgery, while Ashish Nehra misses out due to a finger injury.

    India play one Twenty20 and five ODIs against the hosts beginning with the Twenty20 game on June 4.

    Squad: Gautam Gambhir (C), Suresh Raina, Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, S Badrinath, Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, R Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Munaf Patel, Vinay Kumar, Yusuf Pathan, Amit Mishra, Wriddhiman Saha (wk).
