Sreesanth and Zaheer Khan recalled for Tests
Temperamental fast bowler Sreesanth has been given another chance to resurrect his stop-start career, after being selected in India's 15-man squad for the first two Tests against Sri Lanka. Sreesanth is now a candidate to share the bowling responsibilities with a fit-again Zaheer Khan.

Sreesanth, who last played for India in 2008, has had his share of injuries and criticism over attitude in equal measure. His disciplinary issues have been in both domestic and international cricket - he was recently issued a 'final warning' by the BCCI - but he has been handed a chance to let his bowling correct that.

Zaheer has recovered well from the shoulder injury sustained during the IPL and featured in Twenty20 matches during the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament and in a Ranji Trophy fixture for Mumbai. He has not missed a Test but has not played limited-overs cricket for India since the ICC World Twenty20 in June.


The selectors also recalled Pragyan Ojha, the left-arm spinner, and the Tamil Nadu pair of M Vijay and S Badrinath as reserve batsmen. Ojha, yet to make his Test debut, toured Sri Lanka in 2008 but lost his place to Amit Mishra, who made a strong debut against Australia in Mohali. Vijay, an opener, was handed a debut in Nagpur against Australia after Gautam Gambhir was banned for one Test. Badrinath has yet to play a Test.


There was no place for Ashish Nehra, who has done well after making his ODI return, or Munaf Patel as India opted for three spinners. There was no reserve wicketkeeper named. The first Test is in Ahmedabad, starting November 16, and the second in Kanpur from November 24.


India squad: MS Dhoni (capt/wk), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, M Vijay, S Badrinath, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Sreesanth, Pragyan Ojha, Amit Mishra.
