In this tour, two senior players of Team India can be rested. It has not yet been decided who will be the two players who will be rested, but the senior players are almost certain to get rest.
The series, to be held from July 22 to August 7, will take place in the West Indies and the US grounds. The Indian team for the ODI and T20 series was to be announced soon, but it is being delayed. According to media reports, which players are to be rested. Due to this not being decided, the team has not been selected yet.
The head of the selection committee, Chetan Sharma is on a tour of England with the team. He can interact with Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rishabh Pant here. After this the selection of the team is possible.
Indian team coach Rahul Dravid has worked with many captains in a very short span of time. Because of this the selectors will not be in favor of resting Rohit Sharma.

The Indian team has left for Southampton for the first T20 match against England, where the first match of the series is to be played. However, team captain Rohit Sharma is staying in Birmingham, where the second T20 match is to be played. VVS Laxman, who was appointed coach of the Indian team on the Ireland tour, is also with the team.
