Shikhar Dhawan is likely to miss the ODI leg of the West Indies series too. The veteran India opener was initially named in both T20Is and ODIs squads. But he was ruled out of the three-match T20I series after suffering a deep cut on his left knee during a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy game against Maharashtra in Surat. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) then named Sanju Samson as his replacement for the first leg. (More Cricket News)

According to a report in Bangalore Mirror, Dhawan will need more time to recover from the injury and the BCCI selection committee is likely to name a replacement before the first ODI on December 15.

Samson didn't get a game in the first two outings. But the chances are that Samson will remain with the team, even though both Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal are strong contenders to come as Dhawan's replacement.

"The BCCI Medical Team assessed him on Tuesday to review the healing of his wound. The BCCI Medical Team has suggested that Dhawan needs some more time for his stitches to come off and his wound to heal completely," a BCCI statement had said while releasing Dhawan.

India won the series opener in Hyderabad, thanks to Virat Kohli's unbeaten 94. But the hosts lost the second T20I at Thiruvananthapuram as the Windies kept the series alive. The T20I decider is scheduled for Wednesday (December 11) at Mumbai.

ODI squad: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
