Kedar Jadhav, Shardul Thakur named in ODI squad for South Africa tour

Harbhajan Singh

Seamers Mohammad Shammi and Shardul Thakur have been recalled for the limited overs format.

Shami last appeared in an ODI against Australia in September this year.

Vice-captain Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane will be the three openers for the team.

All-rounder Kedar Jadhav, 32, returns to the squad after recovering from a hamstring injury suffered on the eve of the first ODI against Sri Lanka in Dharamsala.

After the three-match Test series, the two teams face-off in the six-match ODI series, starting February 1 in Durban.

Virat Kohli returns to the limited-overs side to lead India while pacers Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Shami were included in the 17-man one-day worldwide squad for the six-game series against South Africa in February.

Batsmen Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik retained their places, however, young KL Rahul, who has performed well in the ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka, has not been picked. The 17-member squad will be led by Virat Kolhi.

India thrashed Sri Lanka on Friday to wrap up the Twenty20 series with a game to spare, Rohit Sharma scoring the joint-fastest century in the shortest format at worldwide level, reaching three figures from only 35 balls.

However, the selectors continued to ignore spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who are part of the squad that will feature in the Test series against the Proteas to be played ahead of the limited-overs series.
