Zaheer returns, Sreesanth makes comeback for SL series

10 Nov

India vs ShrilankaMumbai Pacer S Sreesanth on Tuesday staged a surprise comeback into India’s 15-member Test squad for the first two cricket Tests against Sri Lanka starting November 16 in Ahmedabad.

Pace spearhead Zaheer Khan returned to the squad after recovering from a shoulder injury, which had kept him out of India’s recent assignments. The team to be captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni also includes Tamil Nadu players opener Murali Vijay and middle-order paceman S Badrinath.

Ashish Nehra, who did reasonably well in the ongoing one-day series against Australia, failed to get the selectors’ nod.

Pacer Munaf Patel, batsmen Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli, who are playing in the series against Australia, were not consisted for selection for the three-match Test series. As expected, the veteran batting duo of Rahul Dravid and V V S Laxman retained their places.

Team: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, V V S Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, M Vijay, Pragyan Ojha, S Sreesanth and S Badrinath.
