Selectors name T20, ODI teams, Gurkeerat Mann receives maiden call-up

New Delhi: The All-India Senior Selection Committee on Sunday announced the Indian teams for the three T20s and first three ODIs against South Africa.

MS Dhoni was retained as skipper for both formats by the BCCI in teams that did not have too many surprises.

Interestingly, veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh was included in the T20 team, which has a new face in the form of S Aravind.

T20Is: MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Stuart Binny, R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Harbhajan Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohit Sharma, Amit Mishra, S Aravind.

Punjab and India A player Gurkeerat Mann earned a maiden national team call-up for his fine performances in domestic cricket.

First three ODIs: MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Stuart Binny, R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Amit Mishra, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav.

Star of the recently concluded Sri Lanka series, Ishant Sharma, was not picked by the selectors for the Proteas visit. Also, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja failed to make the cut.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra's good show against Sri Lanka was also rewarded as he found a place in both the squads.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan, recuperating from a hand fracture he suffered during the first Test against Sri Lanka last month, was also included in both the squads.

After being rested for the Zimbabwe tour, seniors such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin and Suresh Raina were automatic selections in both squads and so were the likes of Ambati Rayudu and Mohit Sharma.

While Umesh Yadav has been included in the ODI squad, Varun Aaron was not considered for selection in any of the squads.
