Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who on Wednesday stepped down as the limited overs side skipper, was included in both the sides as a wicketkeeper-batsman.

Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane were recalled to the team after being out due to injuries by the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) selection panel.
