The Indian squad for the three-match ODI series against England has been announced by the BCCI selection committee and a lot of surprising names have been included. The selectors have presented the likes of Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna with an opportunity for the England series owing to their Vijay Hazare Trophy performances recently.

It will be the maiden call-up for Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna while Shubman Gill has retained his place in the squad. Suryakumar Yadav also has been rewarded with a place in the ODI squad for his recent performance in the T20 series against England while KL Rahul will be the second wicket-keeper in the squad. Here are 3 deserving players who should have been a part of the squad.

It would have been very tough for the selectors to leave out Prithvi Shaw for the ODI series who has done exceedingly well in the recent Vijay Hazare Trophy. Prithvi Shaw captained the Mumbai side and won them the Vijay Hazare Trophy with a series of high-quality knocks. He finished as the highest run-getter in the tournament for this year.

Prithvi Shaw scored 827 runs in the 8 games he played which is the highest amount of runs in a single season in the tournament history.  He smashed four centuries and an important fifty in the final at an average of 165 and recorded the highest individual score in the tournament with a 227 not out. His prime form would have certainly been a discussion among the selectors and he will be unlucky to miss out.
