The selectors and team management of the Indian cricket team have decided not to include four players in the team for the Test series against Sri Lanka. The names of these four players are Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ishant Sharma and Wriddhiman Saha. The BCCI had informed these players on Tuesday that they would not be considered for this Test series.
