Indian cricket team to play in Sri Lanka

Indian cricket team to play in Sri Lanka

Offspinner Harbhajan Singh will miss the India's cricket tour of Sri Lanka beginning later this month as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
Singh suffered the injury during the recent home series against England.
Rookie allrounder Ravindra Jadeja was included in the 15-man squad, Sanjay Jagdale, a joint secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, said Sunday.
India will play five limited-overs internationals and a Twenty20 match against Sri Lanka starting from Jan.26.
The Sri Lankan tour will make up for India's cancellation of its scheduled visit to Pakistan this month. That tour was called off in the wake of strained relations between India and Pakistan after November's Mumbai terror attacks in which at least 164 people died. Indian authorities say the terrorists originated in Pakistan.
