India's squad for the 3rd T20I series against Windies: 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, Siddarth Kaul.

India have already sealed the series, having won the first two T20Is, after having won the Tests 2-0 and the ODIs 3-1.

With Bumrah rested, India will depend on Bhuvneshwar and Khaleel, who has also picked three wickets in two matches, to hunt in pair.

The Indian team management has rested three key players for the 3rd T20I clash against the Windies - Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah. In a press release, the BCCI said that the decision has been taken to allow the bowling trio to be in the best physical condition ahead of India's tour to Australia, which is set to begin from November 21, 2018.

However, it would be a great chance for Siddarth Kaul to impress the selectors and press his case for the future selections as well. Umesh played only the first T20I, taking 1 for 36 in four overs, and was part of the XI for the first two ODIs.

As far as the second game is concerned, the skipper Rohit Sharma was the complete entertainer.

Punjab seamer Siddarth Kaul was included in the squad for the final T20I to be held at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here on Sunday.
