The two cricketers were part of the team that went down 1-2 in the three-Test series against South Africa, which concluded recently. While Vijay was never a regular in the India limited-over set up, Ashwin has lost his place in the team and so has Ravindra Jadeja. <p></p> <p></p>The 16-member team led by all-rounder Vijay Shankar will be without the services of experienced keeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, who is part of the Indian ODI and T20 teams in South Africa. Baba Aparajith is the vice captain, said a TNCA release. Abhinav Mukund, who led the state side in the Ranji Trophy, misses out due to injury. <p></p> <p></p>Paceman Aswin Crist, who missed the Ranji Trophy season owing to injury, makes a comeback. The Tamil Nadu selection committee chairman S Sharath said the presence of Ashwin and Vijay will be a boost to the team. "The squad is a mix of experience and youth. The presence of Ashwin and Vijay will be a boost for the team. A few good players missed out," he added. <p></p> <p></p>Squad: Vijay Shankar (captain), B Aparajith (vice captain), R Ashwin, M Vijay, M Kaushik Gandhi, M S Washington Sundar, Ganga Sridhar Raju, B Anirudh Sita Ram, N Jagadeesan (WK), K Vignesh, V Yomahesh, Aswin Crist, J Kousik, R Sai Kishore, Raahil Shah, M Abhinav.
