Hosts name uncapped trio for T20 series

Ishan Kishan made 173 inside 28 overs in a 50-over match on the day the India squad was announced

India has included three uncapped players in their 19-man squad for March's Twenty20 international series against England.

Mumbai Indians batsmen Suryakumar Yadav, 30, and Ishan Kishan, 22, plus Haryana leg-spinning all-rounder Rahul Tewatia, 27, have been called up.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns, with fellow seamer Jasprit Bumrah rested. The five-match series will be played at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad from 12-20 March.

Yadav averaged 40 in last year's Indian Premier League (IPL), making four fifties with a highest of 79 not out.

Former India Under-19 captain Kishan also recorded four fifties and averaged 57, with a top score of 99, before firing 11 sixes and 19 fours in a remarkable 173 off just 94 balls for Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy against Madhya Pradesh in Indore on Saturday.
