India have named an unchanged squad from the one playing in the Champions Trophy for the ODI tri-series in the West Indies, which begins on June 28th.
The third team of the tri-series is Sri Lanka and the matches will be played in Antigua, Jamaica and Trinidad.
The make-up of the squad indicates that the Indian selectors, in relation to the one-day team, have turned their focus firmly on World Cup 2015. India had fielded a new-look team for the Champions Trophy, dropping seniors like Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh. These players as well as others - including Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh - who had been central to India's success over the previous decade but have had form and injury issues of late, remain sidelined.
India allrounder Irfan Pathan has been ruled out of the tri-series in the West Indies due to a hamstring injury. He has been replaced by the right-arm seamer Shami Ahmed, who has already played five ODIs.
