Yuvraj Singh dropped, Manish Pandey back for ODIs, T20I

Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, K. L. Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah. Despite speculations, selectors have kept their faith on veteran keeper and former skipper MS Dhoni.

Kuldeep Yadav, who was a part of India's team that toured West Indies recently has also been retained. Yuvraj has lost his place having tallied 109 runs in his last six ODI innings. His sloppy movement in the field has also been a problem.

Manish Pandey was chosen for the ICCChampions Trophy, which was held in England and Wales in June, but could not go due to injury. He made an impressive comeback, leading India A to a tri- series triumph in South Africa, with 307 runs. The policy that the Indian selectors have followed is that any cricketer, who was out owing to injury, can come back once he has proved his match fitness.

Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday announced the 15-member squad for the upcoming ODI series against Sri Lanka, starting on August 20.
