TNI Bureau: The Indian selectors dropped Virender Sehwag and included Cheteshwar Pujara into the 15-member team that would take on England. The team was announced for first three matches. The first ODI will be held at Rajkot on January 11.
Sehwag was under the scanner for his poor performance. He had scored just 238 runs in his last 10 matches with a single half century. So, his exit was a foregone conclusion.
Team: MS Dhoni (C/WK), Gautam Gambhir, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shami Ahmed.
