Here's why MS Dhoni was not picked for the Nidahas Trophy

India made five changes to the T20I squad they fielded during the three-match series in South Africa

Rohit Sharma has been named as the stand-in captain; Shikhar Dhawan too got a promotion and will be the vice-captain of India's 15-man squad. Stars pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah have also been rested.

India captain Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni were rested from India's squad for the Nidahas Trophy, which is scheduled to begin on March 6, 2018. The Indian selection committee, led by chief selector MSK Prasad, rested key players citing enormous workload on the back of successful South Africa tour and India's future schedule.

The much-experienced Dinesh Karthik and Delhi youngster Rishabh Pant are the wicketkeepers. "The high-performance team has suggested that adequate rest should be given to our fast bowlers to help improve athletic performance, maximize rest and prevent injury".

India made five changes to the T20I squad they fielded during the three-match series in South Africa.

Among the more established names, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina and Manish Pandey are in the squad.

Baroda's attacking batsman Deepak Hooda, who is yet to play an worldwide match, has also been selected. "MS Dhoni was not available for selection as he had requested for rest", he added.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya will also be reportedly re-energising for the Indian Premier League giving the Nidahas Tournament a miss.

The triangular Twenty20 global tournament is starting on March 6 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. In Pandya's absence, the allrounder slot has been granted to Vijay Shankar, whose maiden India call-up came during the Test series against Sri Lanka.

Deepak Hooda, Washinton Sundar, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Siraj and Rishabh Pant are the beneficiaries of the selectors' decision of resting important players.
