Karthik, Thakur return to India's ODI squad

India vs New Zealand Shardul Thakur Dinesh Karthik back for Kiwi ODIs

India vs New Zealand Shardul Thakur Dinesh Karthik back for Kiwi ODIs

The first ODI is scheduled to be played in Mumbai on October 22, the second will be in Pune on October 25 while the third match is slated for Kanpur on October 29.

After beating Australia, Virat Kohli led team India is gearing up to host New Zealand at home.

Making way for the three were KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav, while there was still no room for R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the Indian 50-over side. Jadeja has been out of the setup for as long as his mate Ashwin but unlike the Tamil Nadu cricketer, Jadeja last featured in the Colombo Test against Sri Lanka where he scalped total 7 wickets and had an impressing outing scoring 70 odd runs with the bat.

First up in the season pass offerings is " Relics of Zaron ", a costume and perks pack which will be available on October 17. The second lot of DLC is called " From Dusk till Casa Bonita ", which is the first of two now planned story episodes.

The 32-year-old Karthik was recalled for a ODI match in Antigua after almost three-and-a-half years.

"There is no particular reason [behind Rahul's omission] because Ajinkya [Rahane] has done well as an opener". Rahul was in the 15-member-squad against Australia, but did not play even a single match. The decision comes as a surprise as Jadeja hammered a classy 150 against Jammu and Kashmir in a Ranji Trophy match prior to the decision. Karthik is now a part of the Tamil Nadu side that is playing Tripura in the Ranji Trophy. What's the point in him just being in the squad and not playing? We are open to different combinations and options.

"Ish Sodhi and Tom Bruce will travel with the squad for the ODIs, having been named in the Twenty20 squad". The other middle-order batsmen -, Manish Pandeyand Kedar Jadhav - however have retained their places in the squad.
