Mumbai, Nov. 1: Left-arm quick Ashish Nehra is back with Team India: He has been named in the XIV for the next two tri-series matches — in Cuttack (against New Zealand) and Bangalore (versus Australia). Out of the squad is Lakshmipathy Balaji.
That Balaji would have to make way for Nehra, who is coming off surgery on his right ankle, was reported by The Telegraph today itself.
Meanwhile, regular captain Sourav Ganguly will have to undergo a ‘fitness test’ before the November 12 game in Bangalore. Should he clear that, Rahul Dravid will be back to being vice-captain.
The Cuttack match is on November 6.
According to Board secretary S.K. Nair, the Test squad for Australia will be picked in Bangalore, on the morning after the game against Australia.
