Apart from Kohli, pacers <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jasprit-bumrah/">Jasprit Bumrah</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/bhuvneshwar-kumar/">Bhuvneshwar Kumar</a>, who are not included for the two-match Test series against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/west-indies/">West Indies</a>, are also in line to be rested. <p></p> <p></p>The Indian team management will meet during the course of the West Indies series to chalk out a plan for the future as far as reducing the workload of a few players. <p></p> <p></p> Virat could be rested again if need be to ensure he is fit for the World Cup. It is a rotation policy which the team has initiated to keep the best combination for the World Cup in June 2019, a BCCI source said. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, India are set to play the second Test against West Indies on Friday at Hyderabad. The hosts won the first Test at Rajkot by <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-west-indies-1st-test-kuldeep-yadav-r-ashwin-star-in-indias-biggest-win-752888">an innings and 272 runs</a>. After the Test series, India will face West Indies in five ODIs and three T20Is.
