Pandey's last match for India was against Australia in the fifth and final ODI in Sydney, in which he scored a maiden century.
Skipper MS Dhoni after the win against Australia on Sunday said, "I don't know whether we should make changes but it is possible, depending on the wicket. We have to see Yuvraj's injury as well. We would definitely like to have a replacement ready if the physio says his injury is bad."
Ahead of the all important clash, Karnataka batsman Pandey has already arrived in Mumbai, while Mumbaikar Ajinkya Rahane, who had been warming the bench so far is also match fit and prepared. Even ahead of the match against Australia on Sunday, Rahane had an extended net session at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
Yuvraj, who had been dismissed for 21 against Australia, looked in pain after twisting his ankle and had to be attended by the physio in the middle.
