India's cricket selectors on Tuesday left out seven star players for a three-match One-day series against Australia starting on October 17.
Among the glaring omissions in the 14-man squad are world batting record holder Sachin Tendulkar, dashing opener Virender Sehwag, pace spearhead Zaheer Khan and spin duo Harbhajan Singh and Pragyan Ojha.
Also missing are opening batsman Gautam Gambhir and seamer Ishant Sharma, who were forced out of the ongoing second Test in Bangalore due to knee injuries.
Tendulkar, Harbhajan, Zaheer and Ojha have been rested, while the others are nursing injuries, a cricket board statement said. Delhi batsman Shikhar Dhawan is the only new face in the squad.
Australia too have rested skipper Ricky Ponting, all-rounder Shane Watson and fast bowler Mitchell Johnson for the series.
The first One-dayer will be played in Kochi on October 17, followed by the remaining two in Visakhapatnam on October 20 and Goa on October 24.
India's One-day squad:
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Saurav Tiwary, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel, Vinay Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, Rohit Sharma.
