Axar was included in the first three ODIs as well but he had to miss the games due to an ankle injury, which he sustained during a practice session ahead of the first match on September 17.
"Axar sprained his left ankle during a practice session and has been advised rest. The BCCI medical team is monitoring his recovery," the BCCI said in a statement ahead of the Chennai ODI.
Jadeja was rested for this particular series but he had to be called in as a replacement for the first three matches following Axar's injury. But it seems that Axar has fully recovered from his injury and he gets a chance in the final two ODIs, which is set to be played in Bengaluru and Nagpur on September 28 and October 1 respectively.
The rest of the squad remains the same as the first three ODIs.
India have already clinched the series with an emphatic 5-wicket win in the Indore ODI to take a 3-0 unassailable lead in the series.
Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel.
