Cricket - India call up Siraj for Windies tests

(Reuters) - India will rest bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for next month’s two-test series against the West Indies, with selectors calling up pace bowler Mohammed Siraj to their 15-man squad announced on Saturday.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya and bowler Ishant Sharma have been ruled out due to injury.

The first test against India will be held in Rajkot from Oct. 4-8, with the second in Hyderabad from Oct. 12-16.

India squad:

Virat Kohli (captain)

Lokesh Rahul

Prithvi Shaw

Mayank Agarwal

Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain)

Hanuma Vihari

Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper)
