Madhup Kumar Tewari, DCP (Security) - Delhi Police, will join the Indian team in the West Indies on March 8 and will co-ordinate the security measures during his month-long stay there, a statement from BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said.

Tewari, presently part of the Prime Minister's security wing, will be replaced by an official from the Intelligence Bureau, the BCCI statement added.
