  • India squad for South Africa ODI series announced

The squad also saw the return of Kedar Jadhav, who suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out of the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka.

The senior selection committee of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) under MSK Prasad has announced India's 17-man squad for One-Day International (ODI) series against South Africa. Chairman of selectors MSK Prasad made it clear that they are looking to give Yadav and Chahal a longer rope since they had chose to look at wrist spinners after the Champions Trophy. Mumbai's Shardul has replaced Siddharth Kaul, who did not get to play a match during the Sri Lanka series. Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli make up the top three, with Ajinkya Rahane as the possible back-up opener. R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were again left out of the ODI squad as Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel make the cut.

"We are discussing Rahul's batting position. Probably after this series, we have to think about that", Prasad said.
