Mithun has played three Tests for his country, all against Sri Lanka last year, while Kumar has yet to make his debut in the longer form of the game, despite being a regular in limited-overs cricket.

The tourists were already without a number of players for the three-match series in the Caribbean.

Openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir are both sidelined with shoulder injuries while while Yuvraj Singh was ruled out due to a lung infection.

Veteran batsman Sachin Tendulkar, meanwhile, opted not to play in the Tests to spend time with his family.

The first Test gets underway on June 20 at Kingston, Jamaica and can be seen live on Sky Sports 1.
