India Name Test Squad
Pathan, Sehwag given chance
Indian selectors have named their 14-man squad for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka that will get underway on the 7th of February. There were a few suprises, especially the inclusion of Virender Sehwag and Irfan Pathan, both having disappointed in their last chance for the national team. However team morale was high as the Indians landed in Sri Lanka, with captain Rahul Dravid relishing the tough challenge after coming off a 2-1 loss in South Africa.
It was their batting that faltered in that series due to pace and bounce, but with the Sri Lankan attack looking weak aside from the obvious threats of Muralitharan and Vaas the star-studded line-up will be looking to take full advantage of the flat pitches.
R Dravid (c), SR Tendulkar, W Jaffer, G Gambhir, V Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, VVS Laxman, MS Dhoni (wk), A Kumble, Harbhajan Singh, MM Patel, S Sreesanth, Zaheer Khan, IK Pathan
