Fast bowler Navdeep Saini has been named as replacement for Deepak Chahar for the third One-Day International (ODI) against West Indies, which is scheduled to be played in Cuttack on Sunday. India levelled the series at Visakhapatnam beating the Windies by 107 runs, thanks to centuries from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. 

According to the BCCI website, "The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Navdeep Saini as replacement for the injured Deepak Chahar for the third match of the ongoing Paytm ODI series against West Indies." 

"Deepak felt mild pain in his lower back following the second ODI played in Vizag on Wednesday. The BCCI medical team examined him and has suggested that the fast bowler needs some rest in order to fully recover. He has thus been thus ruled out of the final ODI."

West Indies took the lead in the three-match series, defeating the hosts by a comfortable eight-wicket margin. If West Indies win at Cuttack, it will be their first ever ODI series win over India since 2006. Previously, India had won the T20I series 2-1 on this tour.

India’s squad for third ODI: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini
