Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday said Dhawan needs some time before he regains full fitness.

“The BCCI Medical Team feels that while Dhawan’s stitches are off and his wound is healing gradually, he still needs some more time before he regains full match fitness,” BCCI said in a statement.

India is currently playing a three-match T20I series against West Indies which will be followed by a three-match ODI series.

India’s squad for ODI series: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma (VC), Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (WK), Shivam Dube, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

India won the first T20I while faced a defeat in the second match against West Indies. The series-decider will be played on Wednesday at the Wankhede Stadium.
