Dhoni, who stepped down from the post on Wednesday, has been retained in the squad for the wicket-keeper-batsman slot thereby keeping himself available for selection for the England series. Meanwhile, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/yuvraj-singh" target="_blank">Yuvraj Singh</a> has also been recalled in both ODI and T20 squad, which also sees a return for experienced seamer <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ashish-nehra" target="_blank">Ashish Nehra</a>. <p></p> <p></p> Virat is a kind of a player who likes challenges and prepares well when he gets additional responsibility and god has been kind where he has been successful in delivering. I hope he will emulate similar success he had in the test format and play positive cricket, Sharma told ANI. <p></p> <p></p> Dhoni is one the best captains India has ever had and Virat, who used to be vice-captain, learnt a lot from him and I believe Virat is going to learn more on remaining calm and cool in tough situations, his presence on the ground would be very helpful for Kohli, Sharma added. <p></p> <p></p>19-year-old Rishabh Pant has also earned his maiden senior team call-up with the selection committee including the precocious batsman in the T20 squad. <p></p> <p></p>Earlier, the meeting to select India's squads for the ODI and T20I series was delayed by three hours because of a lack of clarity over protocol in the wake of the Supreme Court order on January 2, which left the country's cricket board without most of its office-bearers.
