India, 2-0 up in the three-match Twenty20 International series against the Windies, have decided to rest three frontline bowlers for the final T20I in Chennai on Sunday, 11 November.
Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav, who played both the T20Is, and Umesh Yadav, who only played the first, have now been left out for the final fixture, and paceman Siddarth Kaul has been called up for the tour-ending game.
