Ojha finally recalled, Dhawan makes his debutZeenews Sports Bureau

Mohali: Quite what Pragyan Ojha had done wrong was unclear as he wasn’t in the Indian playing eleven for the first two Tests against the Aussies on spin-friendly tracks, even after emerging as the leading wicket taker for India in the last Test series India played – against England.

The none-too-impressive Harbhajan Singh, who had done nothing to justify his selection into the squad, started ahead of him and, predictably, failed to really dazzle.

But Ojha has finally been recalled after the selection panel has come under a lot of flak for not playing the left-armer thus far. With Australia batting first and the spinners’ turn – in more ways than one – coming later in the match, it’ll be quite the challenge for the left-armer.

The other change to the winning combination from the first two matches is the inclusion of Shikhar Dhawan after Virender Sehwag was dropped following the veteran batsman’s continued run of poor form. Dhawan will open alongside Murali Vijay, who scored a glorious ton in the previous game. The Delhi-boy received his cap from the Little Master Sachin Tendulkar on Friday morning after the toss.
