Jadhav missed the limited-overs leg against Sri Lanka at home due to a hamstring injury but now has reclaimed his spot at the expense of Lokesh Rahul, who looked in good form during the ongoing T20I series against Thisara Perera's side. Tamil Nadu off-spinner Washington Sundar, who had replaced him, is out.

Captain Virat Kohli will return to lead his country in ODI cricket as India selected a 17-man squad for the series in South Africa, starting in February. The ODI series begins with the first, of six games, in Durban on February 1.

Kohli was rested for the three-match Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka, which India lead 2-0 with Rohit Sharma in charge.

Senior spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have once again been ignored by the selectors who have shown confidence in the left-arm spinner Akshar Patel with the young trio of spin bowlers, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. "Kedar will be alright by the start of the series", said chief selector MSK Prasad.


Selectors have made a decision to give young batsman Shreyas Iyer, who scored back to back half-centuries against Sri Lanka, an extended run.

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

India squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur.
