MS Dhoni To Return To Action. Fans Delighted

The All-India senior selection committee of the BCCI has announced the squads for the upcoming ODI series against Australia and for the upcoming ODI and T20I series to be played against New Zealand. The BCCI list marks the return of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the T20 squad against New Zealand while Mohammed Shami has been pulled in for ODI against both Australia and New Zealand. In New Zealand, India will play five ODIs on January 23, 26, 28, 31 and February 3 followed by three T20Is on February 6, 8 and 10.

The wicketkeeper batsman was dropped for the Twenty20 global squad for the West Indies series at home in November, and later, for the Australia T20Is.

After being dropped from the T20I squad against Australia, Dhoni has earned a call-back to the side and is set to feature in both the ODI series against Australia and New Zealand.

Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik have also been included to the ODI squad while Hardik Pandya, who returned after a long-term injury has also been added to the squad. The selectors, however, have dropped Rishabh Pant from the ODI squads and he will return home after the ongoing Test series against Australia. He, however, remains missing from the T20I squad. Surprisingly, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant has been taken in the ODI mix, thanks to their good performances off late. Also now with Kedar (Jadhav) and Hardik (Pandya) are fit and Kedar being an off break bowler, it will be hard for the team management to fit in Rishabh in playing XI in the World Cup unless someone gets injured. Kedar Jadhav and Krunal Pandya have also been picked and Shikhar Dhawan also find a spot in the squad.
