Star cricketer Suresh Raina has also been included in the side.
Promising cricketers like Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda, Ishan Kishan, and Pervez Rasool are also set to play in the match.
However, fans would not be able to watch these upcoming cricketers in action against the Three Lions, after Star Sports confirmed that they would not be broadcasting the match, according to Indian sports news portal Sportskeeda.
The India-England ODI series is set to get underway on Sunday January 15, in Pune.
