New Delhi: Winning and losing is a part of sport and the Indian boys have already put the loss in the final of the Champions Trophy behind them as they embark on the short tour of West Indies. Virat Kohli and his boys are set to play a five-match ODI series in the Caribbean Islands and a T20 International.

The squad wears almost the same look with the selectors deciding to only rest opener Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. The two have been replaced by Rishabh Pant and Kuldeep Yadav. Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya took to Instagram to post photos as the team left for the Caribbean shores.

Dhawan’s post read: “Off to Caribbean @hardikpandya93 ”
