India Rest Key Players for 3rd Windies T20I

The Indian national selectors have named India’s squad for the third and final T20I of the 3- match series against West Indies which is scheduled to be played on Sunday (Nov 11) in Chennai. Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav were rested for the final T20I while Siddarth Kaul got a call-up to the squad.


The three players are benched in a bid to provide sufficient rest to the players before the all-important tour of Australia which starts in the second half of November. Siddarth Kaul who made his debut earlier this year in Ireland might get another chance to prove his worth with the ball. In his 2 T20Is so far, Kaul picked up 3 wickets while he is yet to pick up a wicket in the ODI format (played 3 ODIs so far).

“The Indian team management has decided to rest Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav from the upcoming third Paytm T20I against the Windies in Chennai. The decision has been made to allow the trio to be in the best physical condition ahead of India’s tour to Australia. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has added Siddarth Kaul to India’s squad for the final T20I,” stated the BCCI in a press release.

In my view, India might include Yuzvendra Chahal in the absence of Kuldeep in the playing XI while Bhuvi, Khaleel and Siddarth might form the pace attack. India won the 1st T20I of the series by a margin of 5 wickets and the 2nd T20I by a margin of 71 runs to take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the 3-match series. The third and final T20I of the series will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

India’s squad for the 3rd T20I against West Indies: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Shahbaz Nadeem, Siddarth Kaul
