The BCCI has confirmed a 17-man Team India squad for the upcoming 3-match ODI series against an in-form England side. Rohit Sharma will be expected to return and lead after recovering from covid-19.
Hardik Pandya also makes a return to the one-day squad having recently come back to the T20I team. Shikhar Dhawan has been given a chance considering the experienced opener is still consistent at the top.
Arshdeep Singh receives his maiden ODI call-up as well for the 3-match series. He was part of the T20I squad against Ireland but couldn’t break into the playing XI.
The 3 ODIs are scheduled to take place on July 12, 14, and 17. India go into the series on the back of a 3-0 wipe over West Indies at home. As for the English, they will be without their talismanic captain, Eoin Morgan.
Morgan announced his international retirement on Tuesday. The ECB announced wicket-keeper batter, Jos Buttler, as the new leader of the white-ball squad and his first assignment will be the upcoming white-ball series against India.
India’s squad for 3 ODIs:
Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, J Bumrah, Prasidh Krishna, Mohd Shami, Mohd Siraj, Arshdeep Singh
