IND vs BAN 3rd ODI: Ace Indian Left-Arm Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav has been added to India’s 14-member squad for the third and final ODI of the series. Bangladesh has already conquered the series by 2-0 and India will be aiming to regain their lost prestige and avoid a humiliating whitewash.

Injury threat is looming over the Indian contingent as three players have already been ruled out of the penultimate fixture. Skipper Rohit Sharma crippled his thumb and underwent preliminary scans at a hospital in Dhaka and has now flown to Mumbai for specialist consultation from the medical team.

On the other hand, frontline pacer Deepak Chahar and emerging bowler Kuldeep Sen have also sustained injuries to remain unavailable for selection in the third ODI. Chahar suffered a left hamstring strain whereas Kuldeep had complained of back stiffness and is now undergoing treatment and rehabilitation.

The senior selection committee under the BCCI had a brief consultation before announcing Yadav’s inclusion. Yadav has been decisive with the white ball in recent times and he is truly a reliable and bankable spinner in dusty subcontinent conditions. Though the selection committee had a number of options available through India A team in the shadow tour, they have expressed confidence in the Delhi Capitals athlete.

IND vs BAN 3rd ODI (India’s Squad):

KL Rahul (C) (WK), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Rajat Patidar, Shreyas Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan (WK), Shahbaz Ahmed, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Umran Malik, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav

KL Rahul will lead the Indian contingent in absence of regular captain Rohit Sharma. The third ODI between India and Bangladesh will take place on December 10 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong.
