Virat Kohli has been appointed as India's limited-overs skipper following the resignation of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
The batsman, who has presided over an 18-match unbeaten run as Test captain, will lead India in three one-day internationals against England, starting from January 15, before the sides play three Twenty20 matches.
Dhoni, who led India to victory in the 2011 World Cup as well as the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, keeps his place in both 15-man squads.
Yuvraj Singh, who last played for India in the ICC World T20 last year, has earned a recall following a fine run of form in domestic cricket.
There is a new name in the T20 squad in the form of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, who was in superb form in the Ranji Trophy.
Star spinner Ravi Ashwin had looked a potential doubt with some injury concerns at the end of the Test series, but he is named in both squads.
ODI squad: KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), MS Dhoni, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Yuvraj Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Amit Mishra, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav
T20I squad: KL Rahul, Mandeep Singh, Virat Kohli (capt), MS Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Manish Pandey, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra
India's first ODI against England is live on Sky Sports 2 at 7.30am on Sunday, January 15.
