Rishi Dhawan and Manish Pandey were also included in the squads announced by BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur after a meeting of the selection committee in Delhi.There were a number of players such as Stuart Binny, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ambati Rayudu, Mohit Sharma, Amit Mishra and Harbhajan Singh, who were omitted from the ODI squad.
While Yuvaraj has been scoring consistently in domestic cricket , Nehra has played just a single one-dayer in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.The selectors made several changes in the team as the team lost 2-0 to south africa in oct, Including the first call for young allrounder Hardik Pandya
There is only three months time. I am happy that all selectors were of the same opinion that Dhoni should be the captain till the T20 World Cup
India are scheduled to play five ODIs and 3 T20 Is in Australia
