New Delhi, Oct 17: The National selection committee retained the same squad for the remaining three one-dayers against England as Harbhajan Singh failed to make a comeback.
Robin Uthappa and Yusuf Pathan have been picked for the lone T20 match to be played on October 29 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Uthappa makes a comeback after missing 3 years of international cricket. Gautam Gambhir, meanwhile, has asked for a break to get married.
With young spinners like R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who also is a decent bat, doing a good job against England in this home series, it is a clear sign to the senior off-spinner to work it out in the domestic circuit and regain form and fitness.
Harbhajan had a torrid time in England recently before he came back home following an abdominal strain midway through the tour. He appeared to be gradually getting back to wicket-taking ways in the Champions League T20, in which he led Mumbai Indians to victory.
