Middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav and pacer Shardul Thakur made a comeback to the 17-member India ODI squad for the six-match series in South Africa in February, the BCCI posted on its Twitter handle on Saturday.

After skipping the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli returns to the side. Spinning duties will be taken care by Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Akshar Patel.

KL Rahul has been in brilliant form of late with two back-to-back fifties against Sri Lanka in the ongoing T20I series.

When asked about how Ashwin and Jadeja could thrust themselves back into contentions in limited-overs cricket, Prasad said: "We have enough domestic matches". Whereas, Rohit Sharma will be the vice-captain. We will try and see different options.

Burnley have been doing great this season so we didn't want to give them any incentive. The hat-trick is nice for him but we could have scored more than three.

He also informed that the T20 squad will be a separate one and they are moving towards a direction where the three formats will have their own specialists. Suresh Raina continues to be overlooked by selectors even after passing the Yo-Yo test last week.

"(The) only issue is we have tried these guys (the young spinners) and time and again they are winning games for you, so it makes sense to continue with these guys for some time". "We keep repeating this".

Prasad indicated that from the England series next summer, they will close in on the core ODI team for the 2019 World Cup.

Squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzi Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Shami and Kedar Jadhav.
