Yuvraj Singh could not find a spot in the team.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni's selection also indicates, he is in scheme of things for the 2019 World Cup in England.

Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja along with pace spearhead Mohammed Shami were rested from the five one-day internationals and a single Twenty20 starting next week.

With both spinners, Ashwin and Jadeja given rest, the onus will fall on Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal to take wickets and the duo will be keen to make an impression in Sri Lankan conditions.

Opener Rohit Sharma has been included in the team after being rested for the series against West Indies. WIth such a star-studded middle order, one understands why Yuvraj, who did not have a great Champions Trophy nor the West Indies series, faced the axe.

Fit again India A captain Pandey has been recalled after leading the side to tri-nation series win in South Africa.

Rahul was also an automatic choice once he is fit.

Another veteran Suresh Raina's name is also doing the rounds after a two-month fitness stint in the Netherlands.
