India have announced their squad for the T20Is against England with the likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Rahul Tewatia making the cut for the first time.
The 19-man squad also includes pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who makes a comeback in the T20 internationals while Varun Chakravarthy has also been named.

All the T20Is are scheduled at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad from 12 to 20 March.
Squad: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma (VC), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ishan Kishan (WK), Y Chahal, Varun Chakravarthy, Axar Patel, W Sundar, R Tewatia, T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep, Shardul Thakur.
