Friday 30 September 2011
India have dropped spinner Harbhajan Singh from their squad for the first two of the five-match ODI series with England, in Hyderabad (14 October) and New Delhi (17 October).

The squad has been weakened through injuries with Sachin Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh all out.
India squad MS Dhoni (capt), G Gambhir, P Patel, A Rahane, V Kohli, S Raina, R Jadeja, R Ashwin, V Aaron, U Yadav, V Kumar, S Aravind, R Sharma, M Tiwary, P Kumar.
