Mumbai: The 15 member Indian squad for the first two Tests against Sri Lanka was announced on Tuesday with Zaheer Khan and S Sreesanth making a comeback into the side. Delhi pacer Ashish Nehra was a big name to be left out owing to his ordinary performances of late.
Sreesanth’s return to the outfit would heat up the pacer’s spot as he would be keen to make a mark to cement his place. Zaheer’s comeback too would bolster the Indian chances.
The management has decided to have three spinners in the fifteen-member team keeping the home conditions in mind.
MS Dhoni (capt), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, M Vijay, VVS Laxman, Amit Mishra, Pragyan Ojha, Yuvraj Singh, S Sreesanth, S Badrinath, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Harbhajan Singh
