Thakur, 30, made his India debut in an ODI match against Sri Lanka in 2017. He has since played four Tests, 15 ODIs and 24 T20Is.
Meanwhile, the Indian national cricket team one Monday played out a thrilling draw with New Zealand in the first Test at Green Park, Kanpur.
The final and second Test will be played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, starting December 3.
India are scheduled to tour South Africa after the New Zealand series. Thakur, if the tour goes ahead, will be a key member of the Indian squad. The emergence of a new variant of coronavirus, Omicron, however, has put the tour in doubt.
