Only one change has been made in the squad that lost the two-match Test series against South Africa. Left-arm spinner, Pragyan Ojha has been left out, as 24-years old Ishwar Chand Pandey gets his first entry into the Indian squad.
Ojha didn’t get a chance to play in any of the Test matches against South Africa. Right-arm medium pacer, Pandey has an impressive 131 wickets from 31 first-class matches to his name.
Apart from Ojha, all other players in the South African touring party have retained their spots in the squad.
The full Test squad is:
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Zaheer Khan, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha, Ishwar Chand Pandey
