Squad

India's squad for the ODI series was announced on 18 January. It was Ravindra Jadeja's maiden call up to the national Indian squad. Praveen Kumar also returned after being dropped for the home ODI series against England. Kumar and Jadeja replaced Harbhajan Singh who was injured and Virat Kohli who was dropped in favour of the all rounder Jadeja.[3] After the first ODI Munaf Patel sustained a groin injury and Lakshmipathy Balaji was called up to the squad after a four-year hiatus having last played for India in 2005.[4]
