LONDON (Reuters) - India have named uncapped Sanju Samson, Karn Sharma and Dhawal Kulkarni in their 17-man squad for the one-day international and T20 series against England starting later this month.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Samson impressed on the recent India A tour of Australia and leg-spinning all-rounder Sharma and 25-year-old seamer Kulkarni have performed well in domestic cricket.
