However, Kohli will continue to captain the team, while Ashwin and Jadeja have been dropped from the limited over squad.

Shikhar Dhawan was the highest run-getter in the Champions Trophy while K L Rahul is considered to be the man for all formats with centuries in each one of them. The squad also features Kedhar Jadhav, who also took part in the West Indies series. Rahane and Karthik made it to the side as Rohit, Manish and Rahul - the first-team choices - were out.

Earlier, it was believed that there will be a quiet number of changes in the Indian squad, with likes of Virat Kohli, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja likely to a get well-deserved break. He made 162 runs in his last 7 innings in ODIs with just one fifty. His sloppy movement in the field has also been a problem.

Manish Pandey was chosen for the ICCChampions Trophy, which was held in England and Wales in June, but could not go due to injury. He was out only once in five matches. Jasprit Bumrah, who was rested for the series against the West Indies has also been included in the 15-man squad for the ODI and Twenty20 series. Experienced fast bowlers Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami have been rested, probably keeping in mind the option of an extra spinner in the spin-friendly Sri Lankan conditions.

Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel are likely to handle the slow bowling duties.

Young Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant had to make way for Rahul.
