In­dian cricket rest se­nior bowlers

Fiji Sun - - Sport - Chen­nai: - Hin­dus­tan Times

The In­dian team man­age­ment has de­cided to rest three of their se­nior bowlers, Umesh Ya­dav, Jasprit Bum­rah and Kuldeep Ya­dav for the 3rd T20 against West Indies in Chen­nai to­day.

Fast bowler Sid­dharth Kaul has been added to the squad for the fi­nal T20. Team In­dia have al­ready won the se­ries hav­ing beaten the Windies in the first two matches quite com­pre­hen­sively. Men in Blue won the first T20 in Kolkata by five wick­ets, while Ro­hit Sharma’s master­class proved too much for the men from the Caribbean as In­dia once again cruised home by 71 runs in Lucknow. Kuldeep was the man of the match in the first T20 at Eden Gar­dens, pick­ing up three wick­ets, he also went on to pick a cou­ple more in the sec­ond T20. Bum­rah has been his nor­mal miserly self in the two matches pick­ing up three wick­ets and has an econ­omy rate of less than six runs per over. Umesh missed the sec­ond match, though picked up a soli­tary wicket in the first.

The ab­sence of key men will give a chance to play­ers like Wash­ing­ton Sun­dar, Shah­baz Nadeem and Kaul to show their wares as the 2019 World Cup gets near.
