Raina and Yuvraj get T20 axe

India have announced their 14-man squad to face the West Indies in two T20Is in the United States at the end of August.

There is no room in the squad for Suresh Raina or Yuvraj Singh, while nine members of India's World T20 squad have held onto their places.

Coming in to the squad are KL Rahul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Amit Mishra and Stuart Binny.

KL Rahul was a stand-out performer in both the IPL and India's tour of Zimbabwe while Bhuvneshwar Kumar equally impressed in the brief African safari.

MS Dhoni retains the captaincy and will jet out to join the rest of the squad, who are already in the Caribbean, along with Jasprit Bumrah.

India T20 squad: MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Amit Mishra, Stuart Binny
