India retain squad for fifth ODI
November 15, 2007 20:25 IST
Rahul Dravid [Images] will continue to remain on the sidelines with the Indian selectors deciding to retain the 15-member squad for the fifth and final one-day international against Pakistan in Jaipur on Sunday.
Dravid was dropped from the squad for the first two matches against Pakistan after his insipid show in the home series against Australia.
He found himself out of favour again when the team for the third and fourth one dayers were picked, leaving him with the Jaipur match as his last hope for a comeback in the ongoing series.
Dravid though continued to stamp his class on the domestic circuit, slamming another ton in the Ranji trophy match against Himachal Pradesh in his hometown Bangalore on Thursday.
