Star India players including the likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Shami have all been rested for the forthcoming ODI series against the West Indies.

Veteran India left-handed opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been named as India’s captain for the ODI series and senior all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been appointed as Dhawan’s deputy.

Jadeja has made huge improvements in the batting department and has been highly impressive with the bat across all three formats in recent times. However, there has been a dip in his bowling form.

The 33-year-old will be looking forward to gaining back his bowling form in the ODI series against West Indies. If Jadeja manages to get back to his old touch with the ball and picks up three wickets in the West Indies ODI series, he will break a massive record of legendary India player Kapil Dev.

The World Cup-winning captain Dev picked up 43 wickets against West Indies in ODI cricket during his enormously successful career.

Jadeja has currently picked up 41 ODI wickets against West Indies in 29 innings at an average of 29.87, an economy of 4.87, and a strike rate of 36.7, including a four-wicket haul and a five-wicket haul. If Jadeja picks up 3 more wickets in the ODI series against West Indies he will become India’s highest wicket-taker in the ODIs against West Indies.
