Teams for the India-SriLanka series

Indian Squad : Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid (captain), Yuvraj Singh, Venugopal Rao, Suresh Raina, JP Yadav, MS Dhoni (wk), Harbhajan Singh, Murali Kartik, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, S Sreesanth, RP Singh.

Ganguly and Kaif are out injured. In their absence VVS would have fancied his chances - but Gambhir (I didn't see that coming) gets a look in instead. Zaheer and Balaji did not do anything extraordinary in the Challenger series to deserve a comeback. Sreesanth did all the right things including the wickets of Sachin and VVS and so deservedly gets a place in the Indian side. Rao, Raina and RP retain their places. If Gambhir does get to open against the SriLankans, it would mean that either Sachin or Sehwag drops down the order. I would really like to see Sehwag, Yuvi and Dhoni bat at positions 4,5 and 6.

SriLankan Squad : Marvan Atapattu (capt), Mahela Jayawardene (vice-capt), Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Thilan Samaraweera, Chaminda Vaas, Upul Chandana, Farveez Maharoof, Russel Arnold, Dilhara Fernando, Muttiah Muralitharan, Dilhara Lokuhettige, Nuwan Zoysa.

Nuwan Zoysa gets recalled and is the only new inclusion. The world No.2 team looks as menacing as ever and Tom Moody would be keen on proving a point or two in his first visit to the country after being rejected in that high-profile job interview earlier this year.
