The Indian team management has decided to rest Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav from the upcoming third T20 against the West Indies 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,” a press release from the BCCI said.
The All-India senior selection committee has added Siddarth Kaul to India’s squad for the final T20.
In the two games, Kuldeep picked up five wickets, including 3 for 13 at Kolkata while Bumrah took three wickets.
Umesh was left out of the playing XI in the second match after the series opener.
Kaul, who made his T20I debut against Ireland in Dublin in June, has so far figured in two matches.
India has already sealed the T20 series by winning the first two matches in Kolkata and Lucknow respectively.
India begins its tour of Australia with the opening T20I at Brisbane on November 21.
India’s squad: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keeper), Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Shahbaz Nadeem and Siddarth Kaul.
