New Delhi - Left-handed batsman Suresh Raina was on Wednesday picked to lead an under-strength Indian team for a three-match one-day series in Bangladesh next month.

Seven senior players -- skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammad Shami and Shikhar Dhawan -- do not figure in the new-look 15-man squad.

Varun Aaron, Stuart Binny, Amit Mishra, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Ambati Rayudu are the only players to be retained from the squad that took part in the Asia Cup in Bangladesh in February-March.

The three one-dayers will be played in Dhaka on June 15, 17 and 19.

The short tour, agreed in February as part of a bilateral deal between the two countries, has been squeezed in between the end of India's domestic season on June 1 and the start of the England tour on June 26.

India are due to play five Tests, five one-dayers and a lone Twenty20 international on the 10-week tour of England.

India's ODI team for Bangladesh:

Suresh Raina (captain), Robin Uthappa, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ambati Rayudu, Manoj Tiwary, Kedar Jadhav, Wriddhiman Saha, Parvez Rasool, Akshar Patel, Vinay Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Stuart Binny, Mohit Sharma, Amit Mishra.
