The national selectors on Thursday announced squad for the final three One-day internationals against the Windies and recalled white ball specialists Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar while resting pacer Mohammed Shami.

The visitors on Wednesday pulled off a heart-stopping last ball draw in the second ODI after India comprehensively won the first ODI in Guwahati on Sunday.

Both Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar were rested for the opening two ODIs after impressing for India during the Asia Cup 2018 in the Dubai last month.

Shami and Umesh both underperformed in the first two ODIs against the Windies but the former got the selectors' axe.
