Kevin Pietersen rested for one-day series
Kevin Pietersen will miss the five-match Natwest Series against India after England opted to rest the batsman.
As a first-choice player in all three formats, Pietersen has been taken out of the firing line as part of the England and Wales Cricket Board's ongoing policy of workload management.
Nevertheless, Pietersen is known as a player for the marquee occasions and a high-profile series against the world champions would have suited his appetite for the big stage.
Ben Stokes, who made his England debut in yesterday's win over Ireland, has been retained alongside a host of returning stars who were excused the trip to Dublin.
Meanwhile, uncapped pair Jos Buttler of Somerset and Alex Hales of Nottinghamshire have been called up to the Twenty20 squad.
England squad to face India in the five-match NatWest one-day international series:
Alastair Cook (Essex, c), James Anderson (Lancashire), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Ravi Bopara (Essex), Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Jade Dernbach (Surrey), Steven Finn (Middlesex), Craig Kieswetter (Somerset), Eoin Morgan (Middlesex), Samit Patel (Nottinghamshire), Ben Stokes (Durham), Graeme Swann (Nottinghamshire), Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire).
