Posted On / /

Right-arm fast bowler Umesh Yadav will replace injured Shardul Thakur in India’s squad for the first two ODIs against Windies.

Shardul suffered with a right adductor tendon injury during the second Test in Hyderabad and has now been ruled out of the upcoming 50-over matches.

Umesh Yadav, who bagged the Man of the Match award for his 10 wicket-haul in the match at Hyderabad, last played an ODI for India during England series claiming one for 63 in his 10 overs. England won that match by 86 runs.

India squad for first two ODIs:

Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav.
