|Suryakumar, Krishna earn call-ups in ODI squad|
Ahmedabad: Karnataka pacer Prasidh Krishna, all-rounder Krunal Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav were on Friday named in the India squad for the three-match ODI series against England in Pune.
Krishna and Krunal have been rewarded for their good performances in the recently held Vijay Hazare Trophy while Suryakumar's selection was not a surprise given his stupendous T20 debut in the fourth T20 against England.
All three games will be played in Pune, starting March 23.
Other notable inclusions are Krunal Pandya, Rishabh Pant and Karnataka medium pacer Prasidh Krishna. Pandya had an impressive domestic season performing with the bat and ball in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy while Pant made his comeback to the ODI squad as well after being included in the T20I squad earlier following brilliant performances in Australia and England Test series.
India’s ODI squad:
Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), KL Rahul (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Md. Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur.
Prithvi Shaw, despite a terrific campaign in Vijay Hazare Trophy where he scored 827 runs and led Mumbi to the title, has not been included.
It's a maiden call-up to the ODI squad for both Suryakumar and Krishna.
Jasprit Bumrah, who recently got married, continues to be on leave.
The players who are missing from the ODI squad against Australia include Manish Pandey, Mayank Agarwal, Sanju Samson, Ravindra Jadeja, and Mohammed Shami.
