Mohammed Siraj, who has performed exceptionally well for Team India in Tests, was included in the 17-man selection. The 3-match ODI series will be played from March 23-28.

Suryakumar Yadav made his India debut in the ongoing 5-match T20I series against England in Ahmedabad. He scored a half-century in his second match. Riding on SKY's brilliant knock, India defeated England by 8 runs to tie series 2-2.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is leading India's pace unit in the ongoing T20I series against England. The right-arm seamer makes a come back in the ODI squad as well. All-rounder Krunal Pandya, who has represented India in 18 T20 internationals, has received his maiden call-up for the 50-over format. 

The BCCI has also rewarded Krishna and Siraj by naming the two-seamers in the ODI squad. Jadeja, Bumrah, Shami, Manish, Mayank and Samson are the players who will be missing the upcoming ODI against England.
