Following a string of low scores, Yuvraj Singh was on Sunday dropped from the India squad for the upcoming five-match one-day worldwide series and one-off T20I against Sri Lanka, starting August 20.

The bowling department might see some shuffling as Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami are set to be rested.

The selectors have gone in with a young spinners - Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal with Axar Patel to support them. He last played an ODI against New Zealand in October 2016 and has now regained his spot in the national team. Karnataka batsman Manish Pandey and Mumbai's Shardul Thakur were included in the 15-man squad announced after a two-hour long selection meeting.

India, who have already pocketed the Test series 2-1 and are dominating the final Test, hold an impressive record against Sri Lanka in ODIs.

Rohit and Bumrah, on the other hand, played in the Champions Trophy and were rested for the series against West Indies.

Benchmark Capital sues former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick
A representative for Kalanick said the lawsuit is "completely without merit and riddled with lies and false allegations". Much of the complaint revolves around a June 2016 decision that expanded the size of Uber's board from eight to 11.

Yuvraj Singh was left out by Indian selectors from the limited overs series against Sri Lanka starting on August 20.

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni, all-rounder Hardik Pandya, batsmen Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan retain their place.

Middle-order batsman Manish Pandey makes a comeback into the side after being dropped from the West Indies series along with Jasprit Bumrah, who was rested for the Caribbean trip.

The ODI series will commence from Aug 20 at Dambulla.
