“About Ashwin, I don’t know. It was reported that he won’t be available for 1.5 months but BCCI hasn’t released anything like that. Nothing has been spoken about Rahul Chahar or Varun Chakravarthy. We really didn’t know where these guys are,” Chopra said on his official YouTube channel.

While expressing his happiness for Ravi Bishnoi, Chopra seemed surprised as Ishan Kishan was not included in the ODI side.
He added: “Ravi Bishnoi is picked for the first time. No one is talking about Rahul Chahar, which is very very surprising. Venkatesh Iyer is dropped, I believe, because he played two ODIs (in South Africa). Deepak Hooda is getting an opportunity, who provides an off-spin option. Even Ishan Kishan is no more a part of the team. It’s very interesting because all these guys (who are not a part of the squad) were picked only a few months ago in the T20 World Cup and I thought ‘Are you going to back them?’ It doesn’t seem the case.”
India will host Windies for three ODIs and three T20Is.
