Suresh Raina has earned a recall to India's one-day squad for the series against England after Ambati Rayudu failed a mandatory fitness test.

Raina has not played an ODI since October 2015, but the experienced batsman has been given the nod for a three-match series that starts on July 3 at Old Trafford.

Rayudu fell short of the required fitness levels when tested in Bengaluru on Friday.

Left-hander Raina was already in the Twenty20 squads to face England and Ireland but could make his comeback in the 50-over format next month.


India one-day squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Siddarth Kaul, Umesh Yadav.
