Pacer S Sreesanth was replaced as captain of Kerala for 2010-11 season by all-rounder Raiphi Vincent Gomez, though he was named in the list of probables on Saturday.
Robert Fernandez will be vice-captain of the team, Kerala Cricket Association said after announcing list of probables for the senior side.
Another notable change was the absence of Tinu Yohanan, the first Test cricketer from the state, from the 25-member list.
The probables were chosen by the selectors at a meeting held here, KCA said in a release. The players will have extensive match practice in Kerala and outside the state, it said.
