As the selectors revealed, MS Dhoni is on leave and just like ODIs, he is also not a part of T20I squad as well.
Till then, all roads lead to the BCCI headquarters on Sunday where Prasad will address the most defining press conference of his eventful tenure.
India's squad for 3 T20Is: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (WK), Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini.
It is no secret that Dhoni had already made himself unavailable for the tour of West Indies, but he has now informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that he is joining the Parachute Regiment of the Territorial Army. I don't think we need to discuss anything more on it.
Youngsters like Navdeep Saini and Shubman Gill, who have been knocking the selectors' doors for some time, will be inducted and some seniors like Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav will be replaced by future brigade for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.

What happened next to ‘Game of Thrones’ characters? The cast explain
Plus, 'Krypton, ' 'Archer, ' 'Emergence, ' and more casts striking a pose in San Diego on Day 2 of Comic-Con. On the final scene that left his character bickering: "We set up a comedic space", says Bradley.
"He's unavailable for this series but we had certain roadmaps and plans till WC". Post World Cup, we have laid down a few more plans and we thought of giving as many opportunities as possible to Rishabh Pant and and to see, he is groomed.
"We have taken India "A" performances into consideration", said Prasad. Pacer Bumrah has been rested for the limited-overs fixture while Shikhar Dhawan makes a comeback after injury. "So that's how we have given a comeback opportunity to Wriddhiman Saha". Jasprit Bumrah, who has been rested for the ODI series, will lead India's bowling attack in the Test series.
Hardik Pandya is being rested for the entire series.
The 25-year-old Bharat, who missed out on the Test squad to Saha, has played 11 unofficial Tests against the "A" teams of West Indies, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and England Lions, scored 686 runs with three centuries and two half-centuries, held 41 catches and effected six stumpings and Prasad confirmed he had risen in the pecking order to come very close to a national call-up. By naming Pant in ODI and T20 squad the selectors have dropped a clear indication that they are looking to groom Pant as a replacement for Dhoni in the near future.
