BCCI announces ODI, T20 teams, Virat Kohli appointed as captain


As expected, BCCI has appointed Virat Kohli as the captain of Team India for the upcoming T20 and ODI matches against England. The move was expected after surprised resignation of MS Dhoni from the captaincy. Kohli took over the captaincy of the test team some time back.

Star batsman Yuvraj Singh has been included in the Indian One-Day International (ODI) and T20 squads for the series against England starting January 15.

Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane were recalled to the team after being out due to injuries by the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) selection panel.

All-rounders Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who were rested for the New Zealand ODIs, are also back in the squad.

Veteran left-hander Suresh Raina, who was ignored for the England ODIs, found himself along with pacer Ashish Nehra in the squad for the three T20Is. Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was named in the T20 squad.

The team for the first three ODIs team consists of Virat Kohli (C), MS Dhoni (wk), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Yuvraj Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Amit Mishra, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav.
