BCCI on Sunday announced One Day International squad and T20 International for India's tour of Sri Lanka. On the other hand, veteran batter Yuvraj Singh has been axed from the team.

Rohit Sharma returns to India's squad as vice-captain and the fit-again KL Rahul is also back in the fray. Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant, who were also part of the squad in that tour, have been left out as well.

Manish Pandey was chosen for the ICCChampions Trophy, which was held in England and Wales in June, but could not go due to injury.

The selectors made seven changes to the squad and have overlooked Yuvraj after the 35-year-old managed just 109 runs in his last six one-day global innings.

Middle-order batsman Manish Pandey makes a comeback into the side after being dropped from the West Indies series along with Jasprit Bumrah, who was rested for the Caribbean trip.

Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami have been given well deserved rest.

The five match ODI series will commence from August 20, while, the last game will take place on September 3.

India for Sri Lanka ODIs & T20I - Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma (vc), KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur. India will be aiming to clinch the ODI series as well.
