The first ODI will be played on October 21 in Guwahati while the second ODI will be played on October 24 in Visakhapatnam.

The visitors will come in to the game with the return of their regular captain Jason Holder and lead pacer Kemar Roach which will add some confidence to the side after a humiliating defeat in Rajkot.

Ambati Rayudu, after a good Asia Cup performance, will retain his place even if Kohli decides to play. Notably, he had played all the matches in the Asia Cup. Chahar and Kaul had been injury replacements for Pandya and Shardul Thakur in the Asia Cup.

India's newest Test cricketer Shardul Thakur could bowl only 1.4 overs on debut, against West Indies in Hyderabad, before having to leave the field due pain in the groin region.

Axar Patel had also injured himself during the Asia Cup but his place was lost because of Ravindra Jadeja's successful comeback.

Karthik got several starts in the tournament but could not convert them into bigger scores when India lacked solidity in the middle order.

However, the primary bone of contention will be whether the selectors and the team management will at least agree on having a cover batsman for Dhoni, whose wicketkeeping remains sharp but batting form has been on the slide. Although Pant might feature for India in the ODI, it looks like for the time-being he will just be a batsman as MS Dhoni is also picked as the wicketkeeper.
