Tendulkar, Mongia Return to Fold
20 Jul 2006
By: George Roberts

Sachin Tendulkar has been included in India's one-day squad for the forthcoming triangular tournament in Sri Lanka, along with batsman Dinesh Mongia, who has been handed a surprise recall. The pair replace Venugopal Rao, the middle order batsman, and youthful opener Robin Uthappa following disappointing tours of the West Indies.

Tendulkar has been subjected to a four-month layoff due to a shoulder-injury, but received the all-clear to play in the tournament this week after a successful spell playing cricket in England for celebrity side Lashings. Mongia's recall is based on strong domestic performances over the last few years, both at home for Punjab and for Leicestershire in county cricket.

The triangular series, involving hosts Sri Lanka, India and South Africa, will take place between Monday 14 and Tuesday 29 August, with all seven matches scheduled to take place in Colombo.

India Squad
Rahul Dravid (captain), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Sreesanth, Harbhajan Singh, Ramesh Powar, Ajit Agarkar, Munaf Patel, Rudra Pratap Singh, Dinesh Mongia
