Yuvraj dropped, Ashwin, Shami rested for SL ODIs and T20I

India's Shikhar Dhawan left and Lokesh Rahul cheer each other during the first day's play of their third cricket test match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele Sri Lanka Saturday Aug. 12 2017

Talented Karnataka batsman Manish Pandey is expected to make a comeback into the Indian limited overs squad for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka, which could well be veteran Yuvraj Singh's last chance to revive his floundering global career.

Wicket-keeper batsmen Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik have also been dropped from the limited-overs squad that toured West Indies.

Spin duo Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin, and pacers Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav were rested keeping the side's tight schedule in mind.

India, who are now in Sri Lanka, have already sealed the Test series 2-0, with the third Test now being played.

Fully aware of spinners' heavy workload during the ongoing Test series against Sri Lanka, the team management and national selectors have rested the spinners.
