India retain squad for next 2 ODIs
November 09, 2007 00:31 IST
Rahul Dravid's [Images] comeback did not materialise as the Indian selectors on Thursday retained the same squad for the next two one-day internationals against Pakistan.
Dravid's double century in Karnataka's drawn Ranji Trophy opener against Mumbai had raised hopes of his comeback in the side but the selectors decided not to tinker with the squad, which includes Virender Sehwag [Images] who played his first match of the series at Mohali on Thursday.
Dravid can still hope for a return to the side for the fifth and final ODI scheduled in Jaipur on November 18.
Pakistan snatched a sensational four-wicket victory in the second one-day international at Mohali to level the five-match series at 1-1. The next two matches will be played at Kanpur on November 11 and Gwalior on November 15.
Squad for next 2 ODIs: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Yuvraj Singh [Images] (vice-captain), Gautam Gambhir [Images], Sourav Ganguly [Images], Harbhajan Singh [Images], Murali Kartik, Zaheer Khan [Images], Praveen Kumar, Irfan Pathan [Images], Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, Rudra Pratap Singh, S Sreesanth [Images], Sachin Tendulkar [Images], Robin Uthappa.
