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

India's Shikhar Dhawan left and Lokesh Rahul cheer each other during the first day's play of their third cricket test match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele Sri Lanka Saturday Aug. 12 2017

Senior Pro Jasprit Bumrah, who was rested for the series against the West Indies has also been included in the 15-man squad for the ODI and Twenty20 series.

Yuvraj, 35, began India's campaign at the Champions Trophy in June with a match-winning 53 off 32 balls against Pakistan but his form trailed off thereafter, with scores of 7, 23* and 22. Virat Kohli had earlier confirmed that he is more than willing to play the ODIs and lead the side while spin duo Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested for the limited-overs string of the tour.

Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Shardul Thakur have also been called upon in the absence of the prime bowlers.

Rahul's inclusion means there will be four regular openers in the squad and it is likely that the Karnataka batsman will be playing in the middle order. He played two of the T20Is, scoring 3 and 30, but last featured in an ODI in October 2016.

The ODI series will commence from Aug 20 at Dambulla. The final of Champions Trophy exposed India's slow bowling frailties.

Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur. The only T20I will be played on September 6.
