Share

Jadhav (hamstring) and Thakur (shoulder) were injured during the ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka that concludes on Sunday with the inconsequential third T20I in Mumbai. Making way for the returning first-choice players were fast bowler Siddharth Kaul, who remains uncapped, and 18-year old allrounder Washington Sundar. On the tour of South Africa, India will play a total of 6 ODIs, which will be held from February 1 to 16.

Virat Kohli returns to the limited-overs side to lead India while pacers Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Shami were included in the 17-man one-day global squad for the six-game series against South Africa in February.

India also clinched the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka after winning the second match by 88 runs in Indore on Friday. Spinning duties will be taken care by Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Akshar Patel. "Kedar will be alright by the start of the series", said chief selector MSK Prasad.

Later that month, a man died when a hired van ran into worshippers near the Muslim Welfare House in Finsbury Park , north London. She also commended the country's emergency services, which have endured a hard year with a series of terror attacks in London.

"With every game they have been improving a lot".

Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the pace attack along with Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Thakur. When we picked these three boys, we wanted to increase the bench strength in the spin department.

Squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzi Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Shami and Kedar Jadhav.
