Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the captain while Yuvraj Singh will be the vice-captain of the team.

Murali Kartik is not in the team while Harbhajan Singh is already out of the team as he is serving a five-match ban for slapping S. Sreesanth during an IPL match.

Sachin Tendulkar and Zaheer khan are not playing due to injury.

The tri-series in Bangladesh will be played from June 8 to June 14 and the Asia Cup from June 24 to July 6.

The squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain/wicketkeeper), Yuvraj Singh (vice-captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Irfan Pathan, Robin Uthappa, Suresh Raina, S. Sreesanth, Yusuf Pathan, Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar, Rudra Pratap Singh, Piyush Chawla and Pragyan Ojha.
