The Indian board also announced the squad for the T20I series against Sri Lanka. 24-year-old Hardik Pandya, who demanded rests for the Test series against Sri Lanka makes his comeback to Virat Kohli's squad.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee, led by MSK Prasad on Monday announced the India squad for the three-match T20 series against Sri Lanka along with unveiling the 17-member squad for the three-match Test tour of South Africa scheduled for January 2018.

Hardik Pandya is the only genuine all-rounder while Parthiv Patel, after his gutsy show against England a year ago, booked his tickets for South Africa.

"With regard to Bumrah if you see his performance for the past 10-12 months, he has been phenomenal". He said that Bumrah's domestic performances have been taken into account and considering he played a crucial role in Gujarat's triumphant Ranji Trophy campaign, he deserved the opportunity.

Considering him over world's number 1 and 2 spinners (Ashwin and Jadeja) would have been a big ask.

BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary said that the Indian team will be leaving for South Africa on 27th.

"I really feel unfortunate for Kuldeep Yadav".

Bumrah will join India's pace quartet of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav in South Africa while all-rounder Hardik Pandya returns to the squad after opting out of the ongoing three-Test series against Sri Lanka, live on Sky Sports. Wriddhiman Saha will travel as the first-choice wicketkeeper with Parthiv as back-up.

India T20 squad vs Sri Lanka: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Basil Thampi, Jaydev Unadkat.
