  • Pandya included in Test squad for Sri Lanka tour

Sharma last played in the five-day format against New Zealand in October, 2016 before he was sidelined with a thigh injury.

Batsman Rohit Sharma has returned to India's Test squad for the three-match series in Sri Lanka that starts this month, the country's cricket board announced Sunday.

Rohit, whose last Test was against New Zealand in October previous year, didn't feature in the Tests against England, Bangladesh and Australia during the home season. The series will be remembered for instances of tempers flying between the Indian and Sri Lankan players as the relationship between these two teams has always been cordial.

That Rohit will make a comeback was indicated by skipper Kohli in England and that was precisely the reason why he was rested for the limited overs series against West Indies.

Mohammed Shami, who was dropped from the four match Test rubber against Australia in February also made a return to the squad and will replace all-rounder Jayant Yadav for the Sri Lanka tour. The three Test matches will be played at Galle, Colombo and Kandy. Nair hasn't been amongst the runs since his epic knock in Chennai past year and was chosen as the skipper of India A for the series in South Africa.

Fresh from success in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Hardik Pandya too has been selected in the side.

Team India had won a three-Test series 2-1 on their last tour to Sri Lanka in 2015. The Test series will be followed by five-match ODI series, beginning August 20, followed by a one-off T20I on September 6.
