    New Delhi (Sputnik): Since the announcement of the team for the upcoming series against the West Indies, cricket fans have slammed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the national governing body for cricket in India, for not selecting Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

    Former Indian World Cup winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not been included in Team India for the forthcoming series against the West Indies, making cricket lovers across the globe take to social media to denounce the squad's lineup.

    Even though former Indian skipper M. S. Dhoni was not in the running to get a call-up for the forthcoming West Indies home series, fans were quick to highlight the wicketkeeper conundrum Team India is currently facing in the shorter formats.

    In India, where cricket is loved by millions of fans, no stone was left unturned on the selection of the under-fire Rishabh Pant, who has been getting endless chances, and illogical snubbing of Sanju Samson, who made it to the Indian squad after four years in the recently concluded Bangladesh T20I series. However, he failed to receive a single start in the Bangladesh series.

    Virat Kohli, the Indian captain and Co. are scheduled to play three T20Is and as many ODIs against the West Indies which will begin with the series-opener in Mumbai on 6 December.
