Ashwin, Jadeja likely to be rested for England limited-over series

India's frontline spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Yadav are likely to be rested for the upcoming limited-overs' series against England.

With this decision, the selectors, perhaps, want regular spinners to stay fit for the forthcoming Test series against Bangladesh and Australia.

England will play three ODIs and an equal number of T20Is across the country starting on Jan 15. 

The one-off Test against Bangladesh will be played in Hyderabad from Feb 8 to 12 followed by the Australia series from Feb 23.

Meanwhile, India’s limited-overs captain MS Dhoni will play in two practice matches for Board President XI against visiting England ahead of the limited-overs series.

Dhoni has not played competitive cricket since the limited-over series against New Zealand in October, although he has been mentoring his state Jharkhand in the Ranji Trophy.

An unnamed BCCI official told the Indian Express,


As he is short of match practice he has decided to play the two Board President XI games. One will be day and the second game will be a day-night affair.

Batsmen Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey and Karun Nair will turn out for BP XI to stake a claim for a place in the limited-overs side.
