    BCCI on Sunday announced a 15-man squad for the upcoming ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka which is starting from August 20. While it was expected that in-form Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin will be rested to keep them fresh for the upcoming Test series, selectors shocked everyone by leaving Yuvraj Singh and young Rishabh Pant out. Gujarat Lions captain Suresh Raina who had a decent Indian Premier League was also ignored as Manish Pandey made a return to the side after an injury. This has started a debate among the cricket fans. Here are 5 players who should have made it to the 15-man squad for the series: (Image Source: IE)

    1. Yuvraj Singh Chief selector MSK Prasad said that Yuvraj Singh is still a part of their plan for the 2019 ODI World Cup and they will be rotating the side to find the best combination. The better way to go about things would have been to play Yuvraj in all the 5 ODIs of this series and take a final call on him. (Image Source: IE)

    2. Rishabh Pant Given that the next ODI World Cup is two years away, selectors should be looking to give a chance to some youngsters and who better than Rishabh Pant? The 19-year-old has sizzled in domestic cricket but will have to wait longer for his turn at the international level. (Image Source: IE)

    3. Dinesh Karthik When the Indian team will take field against Sri Lanka this Sunday, Dinesh Karthik would be sitting in front of his TV thinking what wrong he did! The Tamil Nadu batsman scored tons of runs in domestic cricket before grabbing his opportunity against West Indies last month. As it turned out, he was dropped in favour of Manish Pandey.

    4. Amit Mishra Not long ago Amit Mishra was continuously pushing to cement his place in the playing XI. He was the leading wicket-taker against New Zealand last year but the emergence of couple of younger guys like Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav has pushed Mishra way back in the picking order. Now, he even failed to make it to the squad. (Image Source: IE)

    5. Suresh Raina If the Gujarat Lions captain doesn't get a chance to play in next couple of years, this will go down as the most curious case of Indian cricket. With bulk of experience behind his back, brilliant standards of fielding and a highly impressive record, Suresh Raina is too good to be left out of the side. A series in Sri Lanka might have done wonders to his confidence providing India another good finisher with MS Dhoni's big hitting abilities decreasing with eavh game. (Image Source: IE)
