Chennai, Dec 14 (UNI) The All-India Senior Selection

Committee has named Shardul Thakur as replacement for

the injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar for the upcoming ODI

series against West Indies beginning with the first match

BCCI Honorary Secretary Jay Shah in a release today

said 'Bhuvneshwar complained of pain in his right

groin after the final T20I in Mumbai on Wednesday.'

He underwent an ultrasound scan conducted by a

he said.

A specialist opinion will now be sought, and his

management plan will be decided accordingly.

Bhuvneshwar was the second player to be changed

from the original squad after Shikhar Dhawan was

ruled out due to an injury and he was replaced by

Karnataka's Mayank Agarwal.

Revised India’s squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit

Sharma (vice-captain), Mayank Agarwal, K L Rahul,

Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Shivam
