"The All-India Senior Selection Committee met earlier today to select the India Cricket Team for the upcoming India's tour of the West Indies, 2017," BCCI's acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a media advisory on Thursday.

"The administrative staff of the Indian Cricket Team will continue for the tour of West Indies," he added.

The 19-year-old Pant impressed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 for Delhi Daredevils. He has played 1 T20I for India.

Yadav, the 22-year-old left-arm chinaman bowler, last season, made his Test debut against Australia. He is yet to play ODIs or T20Is.

BCCI did not mention about the coaching staff. Recently, BCCI's Committee of Administrators' (COA) head Vinod Rai had said Anil Kumble will continue as the coach subject to his availability. Kumble's contract ends with the Champions Trophy, on June 18.

The Indian cricket board has received 6 applications for the coach's job, for which they had advertised. Kumble too has applied. Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput, Dodda Ganesh and Richard Pybus are the other five in the fray.
