Chennai: Injured pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar was on Friday ruled out the three-match ODI series against West Indies. Shardul Thakur has been drafted into the side as his replacement. As India sweated it out in the nets here on Friday, Bhuvneshwar’s absence had raised an eyebrow.
Bowling coach Bharath Arun said he was happy with the fact that India have a fast bowling pool where bowlers are ready when given an opportunity. “It augurs well for us and it gives us a varied pool of bowlers to choose. Which bowler to play depends on the conditions. We will go for horses-for-courses policy,” he said.
