Newly appointed ODI skipper Rohit Sharma has failed to recover from his injury and will miss the ODI series.

The selectors announced a well-rounded squad recalling the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Shikhar Dhawan into the mix. The three-match ODI series is a perfect opportunity to test out who can be in the recognition to be picked for the 50-over World Cup next year.

It might well be the last series for a few of these players as the competition is intense for these players to get into the squad. In this article, we will take a look at three players for who this can be the last ODI series.

The Karnataka pacer Prasidh Krishna is included in the squad along with names like Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj in the bowling line-up. Krishna has played three ODIs for India so far.

It is difficult to see how Krishna will be chosen ahead of Bumrah, Bhuvi and Chahar in the bowling attack given that they are more experienced than him and certainly more potent. It is very understandable that he was included in the squad as a backup in case of any injury to the regular bowlers. Given the talent that the current Indian bowling group has, this might well be his last ODI series in India colours.
