On Tuesday, selectors announced Indian squad for India's England tour and to everyone's surprise "dependable" Ajinkya Rahane has been dropped from the One Day Internationals squad. (I) had said earlier that Ajinkya Rahane would be looked at as a third opener but that situation can change because he has batted at No. 4 in a World Cup (in 2015) before. In the West Indies last summer, he was Man of the Series in India's 3-1 series win after telling 335 runs in five innings at an average of 67.20 and strike-rate of 77.06 - all while opening the innings. "We don't have too many series and too much time left before the World Cup, so we want to explore all the options before the World Cup", Kohli had told reporters.
Mumbai paceman Shardul Thakur, 26, has replaced Jasprit Bumrah in the Test squad. BCCI will name the Test squad later. His worldwide experience encompasses seven T20Is and three ODIs. The right-hander scored 423 runs in 10 matches at a healthy average of 42.30 and strike rate of 151.61.
Rayudu played the last of his 34 ODIs against Zimbabwe in 2016. He has been in good nick in the IPL over the last two seasons with the Sunrisers Hyderabad. During the first ODI in Durban, he was involved in a match-winning partnership with Kohli. "Ajinkya Rahane has missed out on the limited-overs squad".
