Despite the disappointing performance against minnows Afghanistan, the same 13-man squad will be in contention to face India in Trinidad.

The Caribbean side includes one uncapped player in seamer Kesrick Williams who was drafted into the squad for the third one-dayer against Afghanistan last week, following injury to speedster Shannon Gabriel.

The upcoming series against India would be their last realistic chance to try to get those ranking points up in a bid to qualify automatically for the 2019 World Cup, where only the top eight ranked teams are guaranteed qualification.

Virat Kohli's men are set to play five ODIs and a lone T20 global against the West Indies, starting 23 June.

While Rohit Sharma, one of the best performers in the Champions Trophy, has been rested, youngsters like Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant have been included in the 15-member squad.

While the West Indies clashed with Afghanistan, India were involved in the Champions Trophy, where they made it to final before losing to Pakistan by 180 runs.

Squad: Jason Holder (capt), Alzarri Joseph, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammad, Jonathan Carter, Kieran Powell, Kesrick Williams, Miguel Cummins, Rovman Powell, Shai Hope (wk).

The West Indies' limited overs series against India will consist of five ODIs and a one-off Twenty20 worldwide, and will get underway on Friday in Trinidad.
