New Delhi, Aug.12 (ANI): India's limited-over skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead the 14-man Indian squad for this month's two-match T20 series against West Indies in USA.

KL Rahul, who made his T20I debut against Zimbabwe this year, has been recalled in the squad while Jasprit Bumrah has also got a nod to face the Caribbean side.

Meanwhile, leg-spinner Amit Mishra, who has not featured in a T20 match since April 2014, has been retained for the upcoming series.

The two sides are slated to play two T20Is on August 27 and August 28 at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida.

India is already playing a four-match Test series in the Caribbean under skipper Virat Kohli. They are currently leading the series 1-0 following their massive win by an innings and 92 runs in the opening match at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. The second match between two sides ended in a draw.

The Men in Blue, however, last met West Indies in the shortest format of the game during the semi-finals of 2016 World T20, where the Caribbean side crushed India by seven wickets.

The Indian T20 squad is as follows:

Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, K.L Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar,
