The Indian squad for the Tri series in Sri Lanka

The team:

Rahul Dravid
Sachin Tendulkar
Virender Sehwag
Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Yuvraj Singh
Mohammad Kaif
S Sreesanth
Irfan Pathan
Suresh Raina
Dinesh Mongia
Rudra Pratap Singh
Munaf Patel
Ajit Agarkar
Harbhajan Singh
Ramesh Powar.

It is a pretty balanced squad and it is nice to see the little Master back.But what still beats me is the omission of Zaheer Khan.The Baroda pacer has recovered from the indifferent form that lead to his omission from the ODI squad  with some fine performances for Worcestershire ,but still cannot get back in.Dinesh Mongia however makes a comeback on virtue of his excellent performances in the English domestic circuit.

South Africa will be without some of their most experienced players and will be captained by Ashwell Prince. Given the fact that the Lankans have played well in recent ODI’s and are on home soil,I would tip them to win this series.
