Sri Lanka vs India: BCCI announce squad for ODI series, Shardul Thakur earn call-up

Mahendra Singh Dhoni will continue as the wicket-keeper of Team India.

However, this news will send a strong message across to Yuvraj and Raina that they need to keep fighting hard to get a place in the squad.

Bumrah and Rohit, who has also been named the vice-captain of the team, return to the squad after being rested for the series against West Indies.

Manish Pandey was chosen for the ICCChampions Trophy, which was held in England and Wales in June, but could not go due to injury. Dinesh Karthik, who earned a recall to the side during the Champions Trophy, and scored 52 runs in two matches during the West Indies tour that followed, was dropped. He made an impressive comeback, leading India A to a tri- series triumph in South Africa, with 307 runs.

Also, experienced spin-twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested for the limited overs matches, beginning from August 20.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked the India Cricket Team for the five-match One Day International series and only Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka.

Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel are likely to handle the slow bowling duties.

India squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav.
