Indian pace duo Mohammed Shami and Navdeep Saini are likely to be selected in the Indian test squad for the 3rd test at Ahmedabad which will be a day and night affair . 

Since the pink ball is expected to assist swing , the selectors are likely to draft in both Shami and Saini for the 3rd test as both have recovered from injuries sustained in Australia series .

Saini fractured his arm in the Adelaide test while Saini suffered a groin injury at Brisbane . 

Saini was recuperating at NCA and is currently bowling at full tilt while Shami has already started bowling 10 days back and is on verge of full fitness

Both the players are advised by selectors not to take part in the Vijay Hazare trophy which is indicative enough that they are under active consideration to be a part of theCDtest squad. 

With the series 1-1 and the World test Championships qualification is on line , the selectors are going all out to stack up the squad with the best available fast bowling options for the pink ball test.
