Kolkata: Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, Ajinkya Rahane and Bengal speedster Ashok Dinda were on Wednesday released by the Indian team management for their upcoming Rani Trophy encounters, starting December 8.

While Harbhajan and Rahane have been released for the Group A Ranji encounter between Punjab and Mumbai, Dinda was relieved off the national duty for Bengal's match against Saurashtra in the same group.

The three cricketers, who were not inculded in the playing eleven for the ongoing third Test against England which began at the Eden Gardens here today, were released for their respective Ranji encounters to get proper match practice.

While Harbhajan has played with little success in India's humiliating 10-wicket defeat in the second Test in Mumbai, Rahane and Dinda are yet to play a part in the series.
