While Uthappa - who last played for India in 2008 - was selected on the basis of his good form in the Indian Premier League where he is currently the highest run-getter, Raina returns after being dropped for the Asia Cup.
The other notable inclusions in the side are IPL stars batsman Kedar Jadhav - highest scorer in Ranji this season, pacer Mohit Sharma and all-rounder Stuart Binny while Rohit Sharma has been given a break.
