6:26 am on 26 November 2011

India have rested captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and named opener Virender Sehwag as skipper for the five-match one-day cricket series against West Indies starting next week.

Sachin Tendulkar, who still needs one more century to complete 100 international hundreds, has been rested for the first three matches.

Cuttack hosts the first one-dayer on November the 29th, followed by matches in Visakhapatnam, Ahmedabad, Indore and Chennai.
