Shocking! MS Dhoni will not play for India in T20Is again

Since then, he travelled to England as part of the T20I squads, although he got a chance to bat in only one of the three matches.

"We want to try out other keepers for the second keeper's slot", he said.

Dhawan was pinned leg before wicket on 35 by Nurse as the left-hander went for a sweep, and Rishabh Pant lost a caught behind television referral on 24. It was a performance that earned him a man of the match award. He is all geared up for this game which could be a series victor. Definitely, we have to take the wins and losses in our way.

India have also called up Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer into their squads for both series.

"With regards to Rohit, he is a good back-foot player and his game is much suited in Australia", said Prasad. Little wonder then that the decision to keep him out of the upcoming T20Is against West Indies and Australia has left supporters absolutely fuming.

Batsman Kedar Jadhav, whose omission from ODIs came under the scanner, has been brought back for the fourth and fifth ODI.

The selectors have also picked up India A team for first Four Day game against New Zealand A.

West Indies' Ashley Nurse gained quite a bit of attention on Saturday after his unique celebration during the third ODI against India in Pune.

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.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli is in tremendous form; he scored two centuries in this series already.

Squad for the 4-Test series vs Australia: Virat Kohli (C), Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Parthiv Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
