Virender Sehwag made way for Cheteshwar Pujara for the first three one-dayers against England this month.

The National selection committee that met here on Sunday announced the team after India’s sensational 10-run victory over Pakistan in the third and final one-dayer, refrained from making more changes to a team that lost the series 1-2.

Sehwag was dropped from Sunday’s match in preference to Ajinkya Rahane.

The team for the last two one-dayers will be announced after the third match in Ranchi on January 19. The first two matches are at Rajkot (Jan. 11) and Kochi (Jan. 15).

The team: M.S. Dhoni (captain), Gautam Gambhir, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, R. Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashoke Dinda, Shami Ahmed.
