Figure out India's squad for the first two England Tests

Last updated on: November 05, 2012 16:21 IST

Yuvraj Singh made a comeback to the Test fold, while struggling off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also returned from the wilderness as India named a 15-member squad for the first two Tests against England, starting November 15.

There were no major surprises, as the selectors decided to drop Suresh Raina to accommodate Yuvraj, while Harbhajan got the nod at the expense of injured leg-spinner Piyush Chawla.

Rajneesh Gupta presents the batting and bowling career statistics of the selected players.
