Indian opening batsman Murali Vijay has been recalled to the first two Tests against Sri Lanka, starting next month.
The 33-year-old sustained a wrist injury following the home Test series against Australia in summer and had to undergo a surgery that forced him to miss India’s tour of Sri Lanka in which the team went on to win 3-0.
The Chennai born right-handed batsman will be partnering with Shikhar Dhawan, who was named the man of the series in the tour of Sri Lanka.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli will continue to lead the squad, while Ajinkya Rahane has been named a vice-captain for the series.
India will play three Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is against Sri Lanka between 16th November and 24th December.
India Test squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
