India are keeping faith with their players for the third Test which gets under way in Kolkata on Wednesday December 5.

The only change from the squad in Mumbai - where they lost by 10 wickets as England levelled the series at 1-1 - is the introduction Kolkata Knight Riders' paceman Ashok Dinda for the injured Umesh Yadav.

Dinda's familiarity with the Eden Gardens pitch is understood to be one of the key reasons behind his selection.

The final Test will take place in Nagpur between December 13 and 17.

India squad: MS Dhoni (Captain, wkt), G Gambhir, V Sehwag, S Tendulkar, V Kohli, Y Singh, C Pujara, R Ashwin, A Dinda, P Ojha, A Rahane, H Singh, I Sharma, M Vijay, Z Khan.
