India have retained the squad that took a 2-1 series lead against England for the last two one-dayers in Mohali and Dharamsala. Manoj Tiwary, who said he had recovered from a side strain, was not picked.
The matches are on January 23 and 27, and the last ODI clashes with the final of the Ranji Trophy, which runs from January 26 to 30. Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja are the players who could be involved in that game if their domestic teams make it through the semi-finals.
Squad: MS Dhoni (capt), Gautam Gambhir, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashok Dinda, Shami Ahmed.
