Harbhajan handed one day recall

Harbhajan Singh, who bowled India to victory in the second Test, has been included in a 14-man squad for the five match one day series against Australia.

The off spinner played the last of his 13 one day internationals against Zimbabwe three years ago.

The 20-year-old has claimed 13 wickets in the sensational win in Calcutta to cap a successful return at international level after correcting a suspect action and finding form in domestic cricket.

Harbhajan became the first-ever Indian to take a Test hat-trick when he performed the feat on the opening day at Eden Gardens against Australia.

"Australia has a lot of left-handers. We hope he should be able to come good," chief selector Chandu Borde said after naming the squad for the first three games.

Veteran Robin Singh returns after selectors left him out of a five-match one-day series against Zimbabwe last December.

Paceman Javagal Srinath, who announced last year that he preferred to skip one-day games, has also been included.

Srinath is recovering from a right index finger fracture he suffered in the first test in Bombay three weeks ago but should be fit.

The selectors also included the uncapped Dinesh Mongia following a string of excellent domestic performances but omitted out-of-form left-hander Yuvraj Singh.

The five one-day matches will be played in Bangalore (March 25), Pune (March 28), Indore (March 31), Visakhapatnam (April 3) and Goa (April 6).


Sourav Ganguly (captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Vangipurappu Laxman, Rahul Dravid, Hemang Badani, Dinesh Mongia, Vijay Dahiya, Sunil Joshi, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Javagal Srinath, Ajit Agarkar, Robin Singh, Virender Sehwag.
