India have named uncapped all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in their 15-man squad to take on Sri Lanka in five One Day Internationals later this month.

Left-arm spinner Jadeja has been rewarded for consistent performances for Ranji Trophy semi-finalists Saurashtra while fast bowler Praveen Kumar, who played a key role in helping Uttar Pradesh to the final, has been recalled.

Jadeja, who was also part of the Indian Premier League-winning Rajasthan Royals squad, effectively replaces Harbhajan Singh, who has been ruled out of the series, which begins on January 28th in Dambulla.

India will be hoping for a repeat of their tour last year where they won the ODI series 3-2.

India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Munaf Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Praveen Kumar, Pragyan Ojha
