Indian selectors have recalled the premier pace bowling pair of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah for the remaining 3 ODIs against Windies. The Indian bowling has leaked over 300 in both the ODIs so far. The Windies batsmen have taken full toll of the weak Indian pace attack. But now they’ll have a tougher challenge against Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar.

Mohammed Shami has been removed from the ODI squad. The pacer gave away 81 runs in the first ODI from 10 overs and 59 in the 2nd. He bagged 3 wickets in 2 matches and was expensive which led to his exclusion. However, Umesh Yadav has gone for more than 7 runs an over and could pick up just 1 wicket. But Yadav manages to retain his place.

Kedar Jadhav has regained fitness and is currently involved in the Deodhar Trophy. But the selectors decided to overlook him despite his impressive show in the Asia Cup 2018. Khaleel Ahmed, who had gone for 64 runs in the first ODI for one wicket, was dropped for the second ODI. The left-arm pacer still holds on to his spot in the 15-man squad. The rest of the squad is the same as the first 2 games.

India defeated Windies in the first ODI by chasing down 322 quite comfortably on the back of centuries from Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. The visitors came back strong in the next game and almost defeated the hosts. But a thrilling game ended in a draw.

The series now moves to Pune for the 3rd ODI on Saturday. The last 2 ODIs will be hosted by Mumbai (Brabourne) and Thiruvananthapuram respectively.
