M.S. Dhoni named as India new ODI Captain

Dhoni, who is currently leading the Twenty20 team in South Africa, has been appointed as the captain of the ODI team for the upcoming One-Day series’ against Australia and Pakistan. Yuvraj Singh has been named Dhoni’s deputy.

India play seven One-Dayers against Australia and after that five matches against Pakistan. The series against Australia starts later this month. Left-arm pacer Irfan Pathan and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh have made a comeback into the One-Day team. But there is bad news for Virender Sehwag who failed to find his name among the 15-member One-Day squad announced by the BCCI for the first three One-Dayers against Australia.

The Test captaincy is most likely to be handed over to Sachin Tendulkar though Vengsarkar said that they had not spoken to the Little Master about it.

Team for the first three One-Dayers: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (C, WK), Yuvraj Singh (VC), Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik, Irfan Pathan, Ramesh Powar, Rudra Pratap Singh, S Sreesanth, Harbhajan Singh, Piyush Chawla, Zaheer Khan.
